About

Who Can Join?

Any member's child who is age 4 to 18 years old who (for safety reasons) can swim one length of the pool (25 meters). This is a team and we have fast swimmers and great divers, but we also have lots of kids that just love being on a team, being in the water on a hot day, and enjoy having a summer activity with lots of kids from the pool. Don't let the word TEAM intimidate you. Please join either the swim or dive team, or even both! It is a great activity for the summer. All are welcome and encouraged to join the fun.

First Mates

Ahoy First Mates! High Point Pirates began a new program in 2015 to introduce young swimmers (ages 4 to 8) to swim team. First Mates practice on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10:00 to 10:30 AM. The focus of the practices is to improve technique and endurance so that swimmers will be ready to take on a 25 yard race at our last home swim meet of the season.

This program cost is $35, and Mates receive all the benefits of team membership. This includes a white team T-shirt to dyed on Tie Dye Day and participation in all of our fun social activities including the splash off party, Friday snacks and more!

First Mates should still participate in swim lessons, since practice focuses primarily on the freestyle stroke. There are plenty of helpers in the water during practice!

Please Note: First Mates practices end with our last home swim meet of the season. There will be no First Mates practices after the last home swim meet.

Team Racing Suits

The 2017 team swim suits are made by TYR and are available at Simply Swimming at 6649 University Avenue in Middleton, WI. This is the new location as of May 2016 and is the former location of Middleton Sports and Fitness. It is best to take your child to the store and have him/her try on suits in order to get the right size. Please note: Simply Swimming is closed on Sundays. The team suit is not required but most kids do get them. Make sure to let Simply Swimming know that you are a member at High Point pool so you get the team discount for other items (goggles, towels, swim bags) purchased in the swim department.

Don't delay if you wish to get the team suit! Simply Swimming orders the suits in advance from TYR and once the in-store stock is sold out they cannot order more. Visit the Simply Swimming website for store hours.

Team Apparel

Apparel includes t-shirts, shorts, pants and sweatshirts with the High Point Pirates Swim & Dive logo. Anyone can order apparel including swim and dive team members, siblings, parents and general pool members.
