Swim Team is an athletic program for high schoolers that like to train and compete in swim meets. Swim and Dive team competes in 10 meets each year in addition to conference and state meets. Swimmers need to be able to swim at least one of the four strokes (freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, or breast stroke). We train at the Bill Harmon Rec Center and from Sept to March. Swimmers train to meet qualifying times. If you can swim, you would be a great fit for our team. If you are an athlete in other sports, our team builds great core conditioning, endurance, and stamina. We have placed first in our conference the last 3 years. Our program is entering it's 5th year. Our swim team was established because we have an amazing community rec program with a large number of children in our community that participate. Once many of those students reach high school, they still want to compete and participate in a sport they love.
