Swim Team

Swim Team invites swimmers of all ability levels, from beginner through elite. It is designed to condition young swimmers, teach and refine stroke techniques, prepare swimmers, and provide opportunities for competition, as well as build character in young athletes. Success is measured by individual improvement, stroke and skill development, speed, enjoyment of the sport, and achievement of a swimmer’s personal goals. The swim Team is organized into three sections to provide for participation congruent with a swimmer’s age, level of interest, ability, and technical level.

Prerequisites: Ages 5-17; capable of swimming 25-yards freestyle AND 25 yards backstroke.

Diving Team

Diving Team is designed to provide the instruction, practice, and repetition required to master a range of competition-specific dives. Dive Team invites divers of all ability levels.
