SWIM TEAM - 2019

The Elks Swim Team is gearing up for another terrific year and are looking for swimmers to compete for the Niner.  The team is seeking swimmers from 5-18 years of age.  Our goals are to improve our swimming skills and have fun while representing Elks #9 in our swim league.

The swim season is seven weeks long starting the end of May.  The season includes six dual meets and a conference championship on July 14th.  Practices are late afternoon-early evening five days a week for approximately 50 minutes each.  We are also planning morning stoke work as well.  Swim meets are on Monday Nights (6:00 - 8:00 pm) and kids can swim in up to five events each evening. 

Whether you swam for your high school team or can only swim the length of the pool, the Elks #9 Team wants you!   As you start thinking about Summer Camps, make certain to remember to include the home club swim team in your children’s Summer plans. 

Only paid pool members qualify for their children to join the swim team. See current year swim team sign-up sheet for current fees:
