nearly 50 years, kids from Monona, Madison, McFarland, and Cottage
Grove have been joining the Monona Swim and Dive Club, a summer
swim and dive team based at the community pool in Monona,
Wisconsin. They learn swimming and diving skills that will last a
lifetime and they have fun being on a team that includes boys and
girls of all ages. Children from kindergarten through high school
are welcome to join. The only requirement is the ability to swim
one length of the pool, front crawl, with their faces in the
We compete against other Madison area teams in the Madison All-City Swim and Dive League. Dive meets are on Friday evenings and swim meets are on Saturday mornings. Competition is by age group. The highlights of the season are the All-City Swim Meet and the All-City Dive Meet at the end of the season. It's one of the largest outdoor meets in the nation and more fun than you can shake a wet towel at!
In addition to practices and meets, the club holds fun social events, where swimmers get to know their coaches better and make lifetime friends with other swimmers!
The Monona Community Pool configuration is 25 meters by 8 lanes. The pool has an attached diving well with two boards, a water slide, and a separate “kiddie pool.” We are located at 1011 Nichols Rd., near Monona’s Community Center and the Monona Public Library. We border beautiful Winnequah Park which is home to the Monona Youth Dream Park, a winding lagoon, tennis courts, park shelters, as well as baseball diamonds and fields for sports such as soccer.
