Are you interested in swimming?

Joining The Ballston Spa Swordfish Swim Club may be just right for you! We are a community-based swim club that is dedicated to the promotion and encouragement of competitive swimming, for kids 6 to 18 years of age.

Our club offers high-quality, professional coaching and technique instruction for beginners to advanced swimmers. We are the next progression after swim lessons. We work on proficiency in four competitive swim strokes, as well as other basic competitive swim skills – all while having fun and making new friends!

New members should be able to swim across the pool (25 yards). Practices are held most evenings at the Ballston Spa High School. Our season runs from September -March. Meets are optional, and are primarily in the Capital District.

We offer a trial period for new swimmers who want to give it a try. New swimmers and parents can e-mail or stop in at any registration date to see what we’re about and talk to the coaches!
