The Blue Fins is a competitive youth swim team open to any swimmer from Kindergarten to 12th grade who meet 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/Winter sports schedules may overlap with swim team.  We are understanding in this situation and would encourage swimmers to contact the coach as applicable.

If you are new to swim team or are unsure if your child is ready for swim team please contact Kathryn to set up a preseason skills evaluation for Thursday, September 12, 2019.
