The Stony Plain Sharks
Swim Club has been proudly serving the youth of Stony Plain and
area since 1977. A small group of parents wanted to see their
children involved in summer competitive swimming and through their
time and efforts, the Stony Plain Sharks has grown to become one of
the largest summer swim clubs in Alberta. A number of our swimmers
have set (and still hold!) provincial summer swim records. A few of
our swimmers have moved on to swim at the college and university
levels and some of our swimmers continue to be involved in aquatics
through life-guarding, teaching, and coaching.
The Stony Plain Sharks is
a Summer Swim Club with a history of developing excellent
competitive swimmers at the local, regional and provincial levels.
Swimmers train at the Stony Plain Outdoor pool and enjoy fresh air
while learning to swim faster by improving their swimming strokes,
turns, and dives. Swimmers develop confidence in their abilities,
develop healthy lifelong skills and habits, and make new friends
while having fun under the summer sun!
