Includes Swim, Dive, Synchronized Swimming, and Water Polo Teams

The recreation teams are designed to provide opportunities for youth to take the skills learned in lessons to a competitive level in a fun team environment. They provide a fun environment to improve skill technique, increase fitness, and learn various aspects of teamwork.

These exciting 6-8 week programs offer hourly practices four days a week. A weekly competition among City pools provides an opportunity for interaction with others and is a great event for the entire family. The season closes in tournament style with qualifying and league championship meets. These meets bring participants from all over the city together for a final competition where awards are provided.

Participants unable to demonstrate the required skills at the end of the first week will not be able to continue participation in the team program. Participants unable to meet the basic skill requirement are encouraged to take lessons in order to strengthen their skills.
