The Forest Hills Swim Team Welcomes YOU...Come Join the FUN!
The Forest Hills Swim Team has been an integral part of the Forest Hills community for over 40 years and is "The Place To Be" during the summer months!
The swim season starts in early June and runs to the end of July. In recent years, the team has included around 80 swimmers, ranging in age from 5 to 18. After its seven regular dual meets, the team competes against other eastern suburb clubs in a championship meet. We are members of the Eastern Swim Association (ESA).
For the past several years, Forest Hills college students have coached the team, which is also supported by a parent booster organization and an executive board that coordinates team activities and club responsibilities. For those interested, Forest Hills lifeguards (many of whom are swim team veterans) can provide additional swimming instruction.
The Forest Hills Swim Team is much more than just swimming. The swimmers participate in many other activities, like pizza parties, a day at Sand Castle, and movie day. The team also plays an increasingly popular role in our community's Fourth of July celebration by coordinating the Biathlon, Hole-in-One, and the Dixie Dunker.
The Forest Hills Swim Team has a wonderful 40+ year history. Many of our "graduates" come back to the borough and are now swim team parents themselves. We hope your family would like to be part of this great swim team tradition!
