COVID-19 Updates

For the latest updates, or if you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to Head Coach, Megan Maslowski, via email at sharkscoaches@gmail.com.

In the Summer of 2015 the team was the CASL Swim League Champions!
The team has now been bumped up to a higher division:
Division AA

All participants are to bring a towel, bathing suit, goggles and water shoes to prevent slipping on the floors.  For swimmers who have long hair or long bangs you are encouraged to wear either a swim cap or tie your hair back out of your face, so you can breathe while you swim.

Welcome aboard!

The goals of the Sharks are sportsmanship, teamwork, fellowship, and fun!

Practices begin May 4th, 2020

Head Coach: Megan Maslowski
Assistant Coaches: Kelly Brainard, Mark Mellon, and Chris Gebhart

Try-Outs

Swimmer must be able to swim 25 meters (full length of the pool) front crawl/free style and backstroke, without stopping. If the swimmer knows how to swim breastroke, butterfly, perform dives and turns off the wall, the coaches would like to see those skills as well. None of these skills have to be perfect, but the swimmer must show forward motion. If the swimmer does not know how to dive, swim breastroke, butterfly, or do a flip turn at the wall, they can still make the team. The coaches will ultimately determine if the swimmer can join the team. New swimmer try-outs are free of charge and done by appointment only. To schedule an appointment please email, Coach Megan, at sharkscoaches@gmail.com Try-out will take approximately 20 minutes

Two Week Trial (Optional)

After your child passes the try-out, your child has the option to find out what swim practice is like before committing to the team for the season. Your child will practice with the team during their regular practice time. There is a small fee for this option. After the two week trial period ends, you can either choose to not continue, or you can sign your child up for the entirety of the season.

Fee: $25
