At this time, the framework of the dual meet league is still being assembled.

The Elmbrook Swim Club is extremely fortunate to have the pool space available we have. There are many Wisconsin teams who have had to shut their doors due to lack of pool space. The Elmbrook School District has been greatly supportive in keeping its doors open to...
