Sharks Swim & Dive Team
The SHARKS Swim and Dive program emphasizes FUN and TEAM SPIRIT and is a great way to meet new friends. Our coaches' work with the kids to improve their skills and techniques, build self-confidence, develop teamwork, and teach good sportsmanship in a competitive, yet a fun environment.
The SHARKS compete in the Seven Hills Swim League with Indian Hill, Miami Hills (Milford), Normandy (Loveland), Terrace Park and Turpin Hills. This past year we had over 160 swimmers and divers, of all ages, participating in our program.
Most meets are held on Thursday nights which allows you to have your weekends free to do family activities. All the children compete in their age group based on their birthday as of June 1st. The age groups are 8 & unders, 9-10's; 11-12's; 13-14's; 15-18's.
If you are interested in having your child become a SHARK, they must be able to swim one length of the pool without stopping and be under 18 years old as of June 1st. Additionally, you must be a registered member of the Forest Hills Swim Club.
