The  Sarasota Sharks  swim team has been building champions since 1961. Since the beginning, a tradition of excellence was created and continues to be recognized at all levels, including state, national and international stages. In addition to its highly competitive program, the Sharks also offer several levels for swimmers just starting out and those who prefer a less strenuous, but still competitive program.

A Tradition of Excellence 

Developing Champions Since 1961

The Sarasota Sharks Swim Team is in its 58th year. Since the beginning, a tradition of excellence was created which is known not only on the state level, but on the national and international levels.

At the age group level, the SYS team won the YMCA Florida State title for 18 straight years from 1985 through 2002; the Sharks started a new streak in 2005 and have continued it by winning the title again for the last thirteen years (2006-2019). The Sharks have also won the Florida Age Group Swimming (FLAGS) Championship title an unprecedented twenty-seven times.

All these titles aside, the Sarasota Sharks team takes great pride in all of our athletes. It is expected that all team members realize the importance of this tradition and do their part in continuing and enhancing it. Represent the Sharks with pride and class, and with the determination that you are the reason why the Sharks are who we are! The Sharks look forward to the future with the knowledge that we have the finest facility, coaches, parents and swimmers in the history of the team.
