Sharks Aquatic Club, Cleveland County's only competitive swim club, would like you to try out for the team.
Welcome to Sharks Aquatic Club
Sharks Aquatic Club is a non-profit competitive swim team focused on developing swimming skills in the youth of the community and competing at the local, regional, state, and national levels. We are excited to have you.
Please take some time to visit our website at www.sharksaquaticclub.com and read our parent and team handbooks.
Our different training groups, which are based on both age and ability level, are summarized below:
Reef Sharks- $40 Per Month
Reef Sharks are 8 & unders (with some exceptions) who are looking for a fun activity to add to their routine. They should be able to swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke, and have a basic idea of how to do breaststroke and butterfly. While these swimmers are introduced to competitive swimming, they work on learning good habits, making friends and enjoying the sport!

This group is generally 9-10 year olds (with some exceptions), and places a heavy emphasis on stroke technique, turn, starts, as well as basic training techniques, and fun! The skills swimmers are encouraged to have before entering this group are a length of backstroke, freestyle with bi-lateral breathing, and legal breaststroke and butterfly. Hammerheads are offered five one-hour practices per week, and should choose any three.
