A supportive team atmosphere will encourage you to develop your competitive swimming skills. Refine your freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly while developing your racing starts, turns, finishes, and strategies. Regular competition with other area clubs occurs throughout the summer. The season culminates with the Western Racquet Club Swimming Championships. Older age groups will involve more sustained conditioning. Swim team members must have either previously passed or must be currently enrolled in Polliwog (formerly level 3) swim lessons. Team members must attend at least half of the practices to participate in championship meets. If a competition occurs Monday through Thursday, regular practice for that day will be cancelled.
