Inverness Recreation Club Nessies Swim Team

Our team is a seasonal, fun, and inclusive summer swim team that competes in the Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL).  For the 2022 season, we are competing in MCSL's Division I.  We offer high quality coaching and technique instruction. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to county record holders. We value good sportsmanship and friendship above competition (although we are competitive). The swim team is organized by parent volunteers, and professional coaches striving to insure that each swimmer has a memorable summer experience. Eligible swimmers must be a member of Inverness Recreation Club and age 18 or younger on June 1st.

We offer a pre-team option for younger swimmers just getting started with the team.

The Nessies practice from the day after Memorial Day through the end of July at Inverness Recreation Club (IRC) in Potomac.  New for 2022, IRC is now a heated pool!
