The Thornwood Thunder Swim Team is open to all Thornwood residents age 6-16. It is a great introduction to team swimming and provides excellent conditioning for all fall sports. Meets are traditionally held on Thursday evenings and our meets are a group effort. A parent from each family member registered for the meet must work in a volunteer capacity at that home meet. We understand that everyone's summer schedules are very busy, therefore all practices are optional. Swimmers are encouraged to attend whenever possible and should be reminded that improvement only occurs with practice. However, no swimmer will be penalized for missing a practice. Swimming evaluations will be performed for new families the first week of practice.
