The Coves Swim Team competes against other swim clubs in the
Northland Swim Conference. All children between the ages of
4 to 18 who live in the Coves or Coves North neighborhoods are
eligible. Starting this year we are pleased to announce that
all grandchildren of Coves and Coves North residents are also
welcome to join our team.
The Coves Swim Team originated in 1973 to provide our
neighborhood children an opportunity to compete in swimming. Since
inception, the team has been associated with the national USA
Swimming organization and is one of ten teams in the Northland Swim
Conference. We typically have 6 dual swim meets and a conference
championship meet between early June and late July.
The swim program is designed to provide opportunities to develop
young people physically and to provide instruction in water sports
and safety. Team members learn to set goals and dedicate themselves
to accomplishing those goals. Responsibility, community spirit and
team work are emphasized in order to develop a high level of
self-esteem in each child.
The swim team also improves and enhances the family unit by
involving the parents. The swim team program utilizes many parents
to staff the swim meets as timers, judges, coordinators and record
keepers. Children and parents enjoy the swim team and the swim
meets as a time for competition and socialization.
