The Amherst TigerSharks are a year-round, competitive USA Swimming team (not a school team) based out of Amherst Middle School, for youths ages 6-18. We compete in the Niagara LSC. Head coach Mike Giancarlo, varsity head coach at Amherst High School, leads an experienced and enthusiastic team of coaches.

Our mission is to help young athletes develop confidence, and teach discipline, teamwork and elite swim skills. Our swimmers are of all different skill levels, and we emphasize a friendly, encouraging atmosphere. We coach our athletes to reach their full potential as swimmers and be helpful members of the community.

For more information, you can read our team handbook here, or read about our membership options here. Our practice schedule is available under PRACTICE in the main menu.

We value our members' opinions, and if you have anything you would like to share with us, we encourage you to anonymously submit your feedback here.
