Cool Sharks Adult Swim Team

The 2018 Garden Hills Adult Swim Team season will begin practices in mid- May and continue through at least mid-August. The popularity of this early AM swim practice program has increased to the point that we will schedule 4 practices a week. This year through mid- July, we will practice on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 AM until 7:20 AM, then also on Saturday at 8:30 AM until 9:30 AM.
The practices will be led by qualified and experienced competitive swimmers and coaches.
This team is beginning its 11th year at Garden Hills, and last year we placed a strong 2nd in the ASA Adult Swim League. The league is geared to average to very good swimmers that are leading a varied and busy lifestyle—in other words, if you enjoy a social meet without high pressure, this league is for you. In fact, the league coordinator calls it the league for “beer drinkers that like to swim!”   There will be 5 league meets this summer –all on Friday evenings. The Championship meet is in late July this year, and there will be a new an August “Olympic Style Meet” in a 50-meter Olympic distance pool!
The Garden Hills Adult Team is made up of male and female swimmers from ages in the 20’s to the 60’s. All ages and skill levels are welcome, as there are dedicated practice swim lanes for those that are faster – to intermediate—to more relaxed or beginner swimmers. Workouts are customized by each group’s conditioning and speed. If you desire stroke advice, flip turn help, or learning to dive off a block, those opportunities will present themselves! New swimmers join every year—and many haven’t swum in a meet in years or decades!
The fee structure will remain the same for 2018— $15 for May, $25 each for June and July, and we will determine late summer fees based on the practices planned at that time.
The league fee for those planning to swim in the meets is $42 for the entire summer, which includes the personnel and equipment for the meets, insurance, and social hour burgers and food after the meets. IF you are under 25 years old, the league fee is only $10, as many younger swimmers are in college or traveling through portions of the summer.
