Holly Park Sharks

A member of the Mountain Hi Swim League supported by South Suburban Parks and Recreation District.

Our Mission

The Holly Park Sharks are committed to developing the technical skills of competitive swimming, strengthening friendships and encouraging our swimmers to strive for their personal best. With this in mind, we urge our swimmers, coaches and parents to commit themselves to practice and meets, and to set high goals, as well as to conduct themselves with courtesy, goodwill and sportsmanship.

The Holly Park Sharks swim team competes in the Mountain Hi Swim League. The league has 26 teams divided into five divisions (A1, A2, B, C and D). The swim team is open to any swimmer 18 and younger who can swim one length of the pool, 25 meters. It is a League requirement that all swimmers be able to successfully complete one length of the pool unassisted using one of the four competitive strokes. The age of a swimmer on June 1 determines the age group in which that swimmer will participate.


To be a member of the Holly Park Sharks team, swimmers must be registered with the South Suburban Parks and Recreation District and pay an annual fee. In 2018, the fee for District residents is $175 per swimmer and $230 for Non-District. From this fee, the league collects a $11, non-refundable, secondary insurance fee from the team for every swimmer, in addition, $5 league dues per swimmer, regardless of a swimmer’s primary insurance coverage; and an insurance waiver, a copy of which the team must have present at every meet.  The insurance/dues fee is included in the South Suburban registration fee. The waiver must be signed and turned into the Parent Rep before the swimmer is allowed to enter the water.

There is also a required team booster fee ($15 per swimmer) and a Volunteer Fee ($200 per Family).  Two separate checks made out to  Holly Park Sharks  for the booster and volunteer fee need to be turned into the Treasurer or Parent Rep by the Wednesday prior to the first swim meet in order for the swimmer to swim at that meet.  The same goes for subsequent meets until all fees are collected.  The booster fee is for team supplies, awards and special medals given out at the end-of-season awards ceremony, and used to replace or upgrade team equipment not provided by South Suburban.   The Volunteer Fee of $200 will  NOT  be cashed as long as each family fulfills their volunteer duties for a minimum of (4) shifts during the swim season.
