Southland Swim Team

Announcements

We are very excited about the prospect of having a Swim Team this summer. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to compete last summer, and we know our swimmers missed being a part of the team. We are in the planning stages for Summer of 2021. We will soon be able to introduce you to our coaches and Swim Teams Board Members! Please look below for information on Swim Team fees and Skill Requirements. Registration is coming soon. Be on the lookout, and Go Sharks!

Swim Team Skill Requirements

The coaching staff will conduct an evaluation of all swimmers to determine if swim team is the right place for your swimmer. The goal of the swim team is to prepare swimmers to compete in meets. We want to make sure that all swimmers are safe in doing so. We are looking to see if the swimmers have basic water survival skills. The coaches will be conducting the evaluations the first week of practice. The criteria we are looking for:

  1. Your swimmer does not need a flotation device at practice, as in a puddle jumper or water wings, to swim.

  2. You swimmer can jump off the side of the pool and get back to the side independently and safely.

If the swimmer does not meet the two criteria, the coaches and board will recommend swim lessons this summer.

The Swim Team Board wants to keep all swimmers safe, the number one priority.
