Participation awards are given seasonally to each individual. Program is designed to accommodate both male and female participants.

Participants must be 7-17 years of age and must be able to swim continuously the width of the pool and back in deep water of that designated pool. We require swim level 4 Intermediate of the American Red Cross Learn to Swim Program for our Novice Teams.

  • Springboard Diving Team

    Diving is classified as an art as well as a sport. The diver must have total body control and good kinesthetic awareness. Divers compete in one-meter springboard events. Workouts are designed to build endurance, refine proper technique and execution of a dive from start to finish.

  • Swimming Team

    PLAYLA is a USA Swimming level Swimming Team. 
    The program is designed to provide a team environment that fosters growth in competitive swimming by improvement of swimming stroke and technique. Workouts are designed to build endurance, efficient strokes, starts, turns and finishes are part of the team focus.

  • Artistic Swimming (Synchronized Swimming) Team

    USA Synchro has changed the name to Artistic Swimming and will no longer be recognized as Synchronized Swimming.
    Designed to introduce young swimmers to competitive Artistic Swimming. It’s a hybrid form of swimming, dance, and gymnastics, consisting of swimmers performing a synchronized routine of elaborate moves in the water, accompanied by music. It demands good water skills, strength, endurance, flexibility, good breathing control when underwater, and precise timing.

    Water polo is a 7 team member (6 field players / 1 goal keeper) water sport that consist of basic fundamental skills: swimming, treading water (egg-beater) and passing (ball skills). Workouts are designed to build endurance, skills set, and team work.
