2018 Summer Swim Team

Summer 2018 KC Sharks

2018 KC Summer Sharks”, is a fun, somewhat competitive, summer league program that starts in early March and traditionally ends the week after 4th of July. Minimal swimming skills are required. We ask that Summer Sharks commit to swimming in two of our four Dual Meets and also commit to participating in the Championship Meet, this year on July 9 and 10. 

Summer Sharks has a longtime reputation as a team that provides: Expert Stroke Instruction, Fitness, Competition and Fun. We are a program that constantly encourages and teaches better swimming technique.


2018 Highlights:

  1. Swim Team practices and private lessons begin early March! Get a head start on Summer!
  2. Returning Sharks (Summer or Arctic) do not need to try out! New Members, see Calendar for “TRY OUT” days and times.
