Welcome to the Seven Locks Sharks Swim Team!
The Seven Locks Swim Team is a great way for kids to spend the summer at the pool!
Team members participate in swim meets, practices and social activities like pep rallies, team breakfasts and trips. The team focuses on creating a positive family atmosphere where children can develop their swimming skills, build overall confidence and form lasting friendships. It’s an excellent way for kids – and their parents -- to get to know other families at the pool.
We welcome all kids between the ages of 6 and 18 that can swim a length of the pool unassisted. Children will be assessed the first week of afternoon practice to determine their placement on Swim Team or Pre-Team.
This year, the Sharks will compete in Division H of MCSL (Montgomery County Swim League).
Please read below for an Important Message from the MCSL Executive Board concerning the 2020 Swim Season.
A message from the MCSL Executive Board
April 26, 2020
The COVID 19 Pandemic is a serious and ongoing world-wide health issue. Here in Maryland, Governor Hogan has presented a practical response plan for a progressive, but safe return to community-based activities: https://governor.maryland.gov/recovery/
The plan is comprised of several stages. In order to progress to each successive stage there must be a decrease or leveling in the number of COVID-19 hospitalizations / ICU admissions for 14 consecutive days. As a result, the time frame and circumstances surrounding the opening of pools is still uncertain.
We are certain, however, that until there is a vaccine, the CDC and the local government will recommend some type of social distancing restrictions. Our division-wide and league-wide swim meets command a very large attendance, and it would be exceedingly difficult to abide by CDC recommendations pertaining to large groups, social distancing, and cleanliness for these events. Our main concern (and responsibility) is the safety and health of each MCSL athlete, coach, and volunteer. As a result, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the following MCSL 2020 swim meets:
Divisional Relay Carnival
Coaches Longcourse Invitational
All- Star Relays
At this time, we remain hopeful that we can have some type of competitive swim season, but we caution that it may not resemble our “traditional” MCSL season.
We sincerely hope that this message finds you well. If you have lost a loved one due to COVID-19, please accept our heartfelt condolences. If you have suffered job loss or other hardships due to the far-reaching economic effects of the pandemic, know our thoughts and support are with you. Finally, THANK YOU to those among you serving in and supporting the health care professions, and those who are working in any type of essential job, continuing to serve our community throughout this pandemic.
Together, we will remain strong.
