• Swimming promotes physical development, develops aerobic endurance and is one of the most beneficial forms of cardiovascular exercise. Swimming enhances a child’s natural flexibility and promotes muscle development. Swimming develops superior coordination.
• Swimming is a sport that will bring children fitness and enjoyment for life.

Q: What is the swim team and why would I want my child to participate?
A: It’s fun! Our swimmers work together at practices, encourage each other at meets, and have a blast at social events throughout the summer. While there won’t be a Metro League this season, we know how beneficial the camaraderie, commitment and friendly competition is to your kids.

Q: What is an assessment and what should I expect?
A: An assessment is an evaluation done by our coaching staff which will help us place the swimmer in the group that will match their age and ability level.
