Swim Charleston believes in building community. Hence regular social events will be scheduled by parent volunteers to ensure that swimmers enjoy community in and out of the pool.
Check out our 2018 SCY season video.
Swimmers will be expected to participate in a practice group or team-wide community service activity regularly between September and July.
In addition, Level 4 and 5 swimmers will be coached on how to teach younger swimmers and they will be expected to complete in-team service hours of approximately 10-20 hours between the months of October and July (roughly 1-2 hours/a month). This requirement will be scheduled to accommodate the schedules of Level 4 and 5 swimmers.
