 Sheridan Storm River Country Team

May 30th  – July 29th, 2023

Summer Swim Team:

River Country is a league that Sheridan's summer swim team participates in.  We compete in meets with other swim teams from the tri-state area at Sheridan and other pools (longest drive around 45 minutes).  Swimmers practice twice per week, and usually compete once per week.  Meets are all swam in short-course (25-yard) and last about 2 hours.

To be eligible, need to be able to swim 25 yards unassisted.  Age groups are (6&under; 7-8; 9-10; 11-12; 13-14, and 15-18).  The purpose is to introduce and enforce the values of competitive swimmer.  We allow an opportunity for all ages and abilities.  If unsure, our coaches can evaluate your swimmer and suggest lesson or league swim.     

Cost:  $160

Fee includes all coaching and practice fees as well as entry into all River Country meets, including the River Country Championship for the 2023 season.
