Mini Sharks is for the emerging swimmer in the 4 to 7 year old age range. Mini Sharks are members of the swim team. Mini Sharks have a wide range of skills from kids who are not swimming to kids who can swim but don’t have the endurance to swim the length of the pool. If your child can swim the length of the pool they should be a regular Shark. Your child must be comfortable in the water and separate easily from Mom and Dad.
Mini Sharks will be capped at 50 swimmers for 2019.
2019 Swim Team Fees
Practice, Meets and Socials
The goal of Mini Sharks is to introduce your child to swim team in a safe and fun environment, and to develop a love of swim team. In fact, Mini Sharks are part of the swim team. They are invited to all social functions, will be in the team picture and will be honored at the End of the Season party.
Mini Sharks have their own coaches that will work with the kids to develop their swimming skills. At our Monday Night swim meets, the Mini Sharks “race” a significantly shorter distance and may use a kick board.
