Who Are We?
Milton Marlins is an Age Group team registered with USA
Swimming, the governing body for competitive swimming in the United
States. All club members must have a current USA Swimmer Membership
in order to compete in sanctioned meets. All meets are sanctioned
by Wisconsin Swimming, the local swimming committee (LSC).
We offer a year-round competitive swim experience for swimmers
up to 18 years of age. We have a team of dedicated and
knowledgeable USA Certified volunteer adult coaches that assist
with practices and meets.
The USA Program is for athletes who already have a sound
understanding of all four competitive strokes, racing starts and
racing turns. In this division, more emphasis is placed on advanced
skills and techniques and strong aerobic development. Swimmers will
be expected to travel and compete in high-level meets, including
the Wisconsin State Meet, for those with qualifying times. There
are specific practice and meet attendance requirements for all USA
swimmers, and swimmers must be prepared to fully commit.
