Swimming, especially competitive swimming,
offers numerous benefits for the children such as building
self-esteem, teamwork, and physical conditioning. Children can
develop skills and set goals that they are comfortable with.
Coaches are dedicated to providing each swimmer the best in
instruction and motivation.
Year after year, the
swimmers, parents, and Swim Team Board of Directors strive to
provide a first-rate social and athletic environment for everyone
involved. Everyone plays a specific and significant part in the
success of our team. The swimmers, win or lose, rain or shine,
give it their all. It's also up to the parents to give their all
because each swim meet requires dozens of volunteers in order to
run smoothly. All parents are required to volunteer at every meet,
whether at home or away.
The sharks swim team is open to swimmers

meet in June. Preseason clinic is a difficult event to
plan; Mother Nature in May is so unpredictable. This year, we will
be offering a shortened indoor/outdoor preseason. When possible, we
will be swimming, otherwise due to inclement weather, drylands and
team building activities in the clubhouse. Preseason
clinic is a great way for new swimmers to the team to meet coaches
and other swimmers.
