About the Team


Registration for the 2021 swim season has ended

Registration: Registration will open at 8 a.m. on April 12 through the link on this website's homepage. This year's team will be open only to members of the Creekside Tennis and Swim Club, as we seek to keep the team smaller in response to the ongoing pandemic. Registration will end on May 9. 

Schedule: This year's season will be somewhat condensed as we deal with issues arising from Covid. We will offer practices from June 1 through July 15.Practice schedules will be posted here

New Swimmer Evaluations: For new swimmers age 8 and under, evaluations are required. Swimmers will need to complete a length of the pool unassisted without stopping. We will offer evaluations May 17-May 20 from 5 - 6:30. Please email Coach John at [email protected] to schedule an evaluation if you have a new swimmer.

Meets: Our meet schedule will be posted on the home page as soon as it is finalized. While many teams in our league are not going to offer dual meets this season, we are currently devising a plan to offer intersquad meets and hopefully a limited dual meet schedule. We will keep you posted. 

Regular season meets are generally held on Wednesday evenings. Swimmers are grouped by age and compete in the following categories: 6 & under, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18. Age groups are determined by the swimmer's age as of June 1st. 

We will participate in the ECSL Championship Meet, scheduled for July 9 - 10, 2021 at the new North Charleston Aquatic Center. 6 and unders will not participate in the championship meet this season.

Volunteer Commitment: We can't do this without you!! Swim meets are labor intensive and also an extremely valuable component of the summer swim learning experience. In order to provide the best for our swimmers, we'll need to fill numerous volunteer positions at meets. If spots go unfilled, we won't be able to run meets. Please plan to volunteer if you sign up for swim team.

Hatchlings: This learn-to-swim program is run parallel to our competitive team and is open to Creekside members age 3 - 5. More information below:

  • Limited to 10 children for the MW session, 10 for the TTH session
  • Practices offered July 21 - July 29
  • Designed for children who are not quite ready for swim team but want to continue to build their confidence in the water and learn how to become stronger swimmers
  • No refunds or makeup sessions will be offered in the case of inclement weather. 
  • Hatchlings is separate from swim team. If you have a child participating with Hatchlings and another child on the swim team, you will pay the Hatchlings fee in addition to the swim team dues for your child(ren) participating on swim team.
