Program Information

The Olathe Cyclones offer three programs to encompass all levels of swimmers and divers:

DIVE

PRE-COMPETITIVE SWIM

 

Age Requirements

Swimmers & Divers will compete at their age level. Age groups will be determined by the participant’s age as of June 1, 2019.  Participants must be 18 years or younger on that date to be eligible.

Eligibility

Individuals must compete for the city in which their primary residence is located if that city has a member team.  An exception may be made if the individual lives closer to a neighboring city’s pool.  Other cities with teams participating in the Johnson County Swim & Dive League are Fairway, Leawood, Lenexa, Merriam, Overland Park, Prairie Village, Roeland Park & Shawnee.

Individuals may participate on more than one competitive team during the summer league season.  USA League swimmers may swim if they are participating in a year-round program during the summer season.
