Swim Team

Olympus Aquatics offers training, practice, and lesson groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Olympus Aquatics Club to offer age specific training for all of our athletes, geared toward challenging each swimmer and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities.

Please review our 2017 Handbook to see our detailed current program offerings and review the team registration packet.  

At this time, online registration is only available for our Masters team (Ages 18 and up).

Athletes interested in joining the age group competitive swim team are evaluated by attending a practice. Those with state qualifying times should attend the weekday 4:00-5:30 pm practice. All others should attend the weekday 5:30-6:30 pm practice. Please contact Head Coach Tom Thorum before arriving at the pool to confirm that there are no conflicts with the usual practice time.
