Youth Swim Team

[rev_slider alias="YouthSwimTeam" /]


Innis Arden belongs to the Greater Seattle Summer Swim League (GSSSL) and competes with other swim clubs in the area: Klahaya, Aqua Club, View Ridge, Sheridan Beach, Blue Ridge, Wedgwood, and Sand Point.

Per league rules, only members of the club may participate in swim team. Any member child who can swim one length of the pool may join (Contact the coaches for more info). Events are arranged by age group and eligibility extends through age 18. This is a wonderful opportunity to learn competitive swimming in a relaxed environment and to become friends with neighborhood kids of all ages.

Workouts are in the evening until school is out, and then on weekday mornings, scheduled by age group. There are 7 dual meets on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, beginning in late June and continuing through July. Those who qualify can swim in the post-season meets held the last week of July and first week of August.

Team members receive ribbons after each event and there is an awards ceremony at the end of the season. There is a fee for team participation. An assortment of parties and events take place throughout the season in addition to the team competitions.
