Trails is a recreational summer swim team. The goal of our summer league program is to stimulate an interest in competitive swimming and provide a means through which youth may learn and practice Teamwork, Respect, positive Attitude, Integrity, Leadership and a love for Swimming. Trails is also a safe place for competitive swimmers who don't want to lose fitness but need a break from the demands of a more aggressive winter league. We hope that each swimmer will develop a lifetime love for swimming, basic skills in all four competitive strokes, and new friendships with great memories. We have a wide variety of abilities on the team, which has averaged more than 120 swimmers each summer, each age group has 20-35 swimmers.
