The Blue Fins is a competitive youth swim team open to any swimmer from Kindergarten to 12th grade who meets the minimum requirements.  Our emphasis is on teamwork, individual motivation, self-esteem, and fun.  Swimmers improve their swimming skills, get great exercise and make new friends.

Meets are generally Friday nights and occasional Saturdays.  Parents are asked to help at home swim meets.  Fall sports schedules may overlap the start of swim team.  We are understanding in this situation and would encourage swimmers to contact the coach as applicable.

Skill requirements vary by age group.

8 and under:
Must be able to swim 25yds freestyle and 25yds backstroke without stopping

9 and up:
Must demonstrate the basics of or able to swim the four competitive strokes as follows:  50yds of freestyle and 50yds of backstroke, basic knowledge of breaststroke and butterfly

If you are new to the Blue Fins swim team please contact Kathryn to set up a pre-season skills evaluation.

Swimmers are asked to participate in 75% of the meets.

We ask all parents and swimmers, especially those new to the Blue Fins to attend the preseason meeting .  Team suits will be available to try on at the meeting.  Parent volunteer positions will be discussed, schedules will be handed out, and other topics will be addressed during this time.
