The North Chevy Chase Sharx, the proud swim team of the North Chevy Chase Swimming Pool Association, is comprised of over 130 swimmers ranging in age from 6 to 18. For over 50 years, the Sharx have been swimming in The Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL). MCSL sponsors competitive swimming and other activities among the swimming pools and organizations in Montgomery County, Maryland. Swim meets are held on Saturday mornings and Wednesday evenings through the months of June and July, and practices are held each week day morning, with an afternoon practice available on most days as well. The goals of the program include helping young people establish a love for the sport of swimming, advanced aquatic skills, teamwork, and the principles of good sportsmanship.
The Sharx are not just about swimming only. Teammates enjoy plenty of fun on land, too, including Thursday Morning Team Breakfasts, Friday Afternoon Fun, teen socials, a team trip, and lots of spirit activities. Our youngest members on the pre-team also are welcome to participate in these activities. One of the most unique aspects of this athletic experience is that kids from a wide range of age groups get to swim together, play together, and really get to know one another. Our team offers a wonderful community for parents as well. You?ve heard that it takes a village to raise a child, but did you know that it takes well over 40 parents to run a swim meet?
Come join the fun!
