The Sandhills Sandsharks was
founded in 1982 by Marsey Peterson. For over 30 years, the
team has served the greater Sandhills area through its USA Swimming
year-round program, the Moore County Swim League, Adaptive Swimming
program, and lessons programs. We are one of the longest
running small teams in USA Swimming’s history and pride
ourselves on meeting the unique needs of our community.
Many of swimmers have gone on to
National level competitions and have received college
In the summer of 2018, the team
moved to the Town of Southern Pines pool, which provides space
for the Sandsharks to expand all of its programs, enabling it to
serve a larger segment of our population.
