Our team has something for everyone, whether it’s having a fun summer activity, staying in fantastic shape, or taking swimming to a competitive level. Our goal is to give children the lifelong gift of swimming, along with instilling, within our young swimmers, a love of the sport.

The summer season runs from mid-May through late July.
