Parents’ volunteering and support are needed to develop a level of success that will help this program strive to excellence. Parent volunteers are required to help at home and away meets. Ages 10 and under: Swimmers must be able to jump feet first into the deep end and swim 25 yards without stopping. Ages 11-19: Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards without stopping using freestyle and backstroke. The Tiger Sharks swim team travels to other venues to compete throughout the winter.
