Swim team, anyone?

May 20th, 2014 · No Comments

Seattle Parks Summer Swim League registration is underway.  Although Mounger’s league is full (Ann Busch, Mounger’s Assistant Coordinator says it filled up the first day!) , there are lots of leagues with space that are just a skipping stone away.   Seattle Parks and Recreation offers a positive team experience for novice swimmers and teaches them the skills they need to become competitive swimmers in a fun, low-pressure environment.

From Seattle Parks and Rec:

This is a novice league appropriate for kids of all ages, including those who are just being introduced to swimming, all the way up to high school students who swim for their school teams. Many parents have said that the program helped build their child’s self-esteem and swimming ability.

Participants must be 7-18 years old and able to swim in deep water for at least 25 yards (one length of the pool). The program includes up to five one-hour workouts each week, two dual meets and two larger championship meets.

Registration is open at Queen Anne, Southwest, Rainier Beach, Evans, Meadowbrook, Madison and Medger Evers pools. Practice times vary, depending on the pool and the child’s age.

The cost for the program is $130 and includes a team t-shirt. It all starts Monday, June 23, and ends with the All-City Swim Meet on Saturday, Aug. 2.

Click here to register. Registration closes on June 23 or when the program fills up.
