We are a year-round team based on age, ability level and commitment to team practice. The club was established in 1976 by high school coach emeritus Dennis (Butch) Graves to train the children of Sylvania who might ultimately end up swimming on Sylvania high school teams.
The club is open to young people from throughout the Toledo area to train swimmers of all ages and abilities. Our children compete in local, regional and national competitions sanctioned by USA Swimming Inc., the national governing body for amateur swimming.
