The Tiger Sharks and Mini Sharks program is a great way to introduce kids to competitive swimming, and also a fun way to continue competing even for older swimmers. We have a short season with weekly dual meets against other teams in the Seven Hills League. The season ends with a two-day Championship meet for swimming and a one-day Championship meet for diving. See the schedule below for 2022.
We will have three groups of Tiger Sharks (based on ability level) who will practice for an hour Monday-Thursday at 8:30, 9:30, or 10:30. Fridays are Fun Days, and all three groups practice together from 9:30-11. Tiger Sharks are kids who can swim several laps. Knowledge of all four strokes is not required.
Mini Sharks are younger swimmers who are not yet ready to swim in meets or do a full lap, but who are willing to put their faces in the water and who can swim a stroke or two of freestyle or backstroke. They practice for 30 minutes Monday-Thursday at either 11:30 or noon. Mini Sharks do not practice on Fridays.
Diving practices follow the same schedule, with practices at 9:30 or 10:30 Monday – Thursday, and 9:30-11 on Friday. Divers are grouped with a range of abilities in each group.
