Tri-Cities Guardians 2018-2019                        

Join the Guardians this season and make Tri-Cities history!  We are a local based swim club that provides opportunities to swimmers and parents of all levels and commitment. We are open to all Tri-cities residents and surrounding communities.

Through competitive swimming, we teach kids about having fun, develop a strong work ethic and sportsmanship.  Our team will have swimmers with a wide range of goals ranging from learning the sport of swimming for their first season, preparing for their High School season all the way up to attending Jr. Nationals

Swim season runs September 19, 2018 - February 17, 2019 (March for Championship meet swimmers). The Guardians offer competitive opportunities for swimmers of all abilities.  We compete in both West Michigan Swim League (WMSL) and USA and YMCA meets.  All Guardians swimmers are registered with USA Swimming.  We have something for swimmers of all abilities!  For more information about competitive meets, please read our handbook on our web site     

Swimmers are placed in one of five levels after an evaluation.  They will practice with swimmers of similar ability. Practices are held at the Tri-Cities Family YMCA and the SLCFAC.  Descriptions of each group are included in our handbook on our website.      


Head Coach:  Kimberlee Arnold

We provide a great experience for our members by hosting several events and activities throughout the season.  These events are for our athletes and we need help from all our Guardians members!  There are many ways to help.  All families will have volunteer hours for the season.  Any hours not fulfilled are billed at $15/hr to help cover costs of hiring people to fill jobs.
