The Swim Team will encourage and allow every child ages 6-16 that can swim one length of the pool to participate in swim team events. We will strive to teach and improve sportsmanship, team spirit, and self-improvement as well as correct and/or enhance stroke techniques. Learning to swim competitively and have fun is key.

2018 Swim Team Dates: Monday, June 25 – Friday, August 10.

Sign-ups will be posted on the swim bulletin board near the Pro Shop. Please sign-up to help out at meets.

SWIM MEETS

The coach will have the final say on which events each swimmer will participate in. The coach will try to make sure that each team member is able to swim in their best stroke and, whenever possible, in their on age group. Occasionally, a swimmer will need to swim in a higher age group. This will only occur when the team needs to fill an open lance in order to score additional points. When this occurs, the swimmer will be placed in an event that the coach deems to be his/her strongest. Swim Meets: 8:30am warm-up, 9am start, or 12pm warm-up, 12:30pm start unless otherwise noted. Please plan to arrive a half hour early to meets for warm up. Please check the calendar for meet dates. Please let the Swim Coach know if you cannot make a meet no later than the night before the meet.

MEET SCHEDULE

There are no events currently scheduled. Please check back near the start of the season

LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIPS

The South Shore Swim League Championship is held at the end of the season. Please check the calendar for dates. League rules for the Championships: If a team has 6 meets swimmers must swim in at least 3 meets to be eligible for championships. If a team has 5 meets then a swimmer must participate in at least 2 meets to become eligible for championships. If there is a rainout/cancellation for any reason that can’t be made up, and a team therefore only has 4 meets, then to be eligible for championships, a swimmer must participate in at least 2 meets.
