SWIM AND DIVE TEAM SCHEDULE

Swim & Dive Team Overview

Swim Team
Swim Team is designed to physically condition young swimmers, hone swimming skills, and provide competitive opportunities. Registration for Swim Team begins April 12 and ends April 31. Swim Team is all- inclusive and invites swimmers of all ability levels. In addition, the Salt Lake Swimming & Tennis Club offers multiple group lessons designed to assist children with acquiring a full range of swimming skills and abilities, from beginner to elite. Regardless of a swimmer’s experience or ability, coaches endeavor to bring out the best in each individual and recognize their success as measured against the swimmer’s personal goals and aspirations. Swim Team is organized in three sections to allow children to participate at levels congruent with their physical and technical abilities: 12 & Up Swim Team, 12 & Below Swim Team, and Beginner Swim Team (6 & Under). Coaches, parents and swimmers work together to determine a swimmer’s placement consistent with his or her interest level.
