For the first time since the 1986 establishment of the Sierra County Swim Team, an off-season swim club is being launched! With a seasonal cover on the City of Truth or Consequences Swimming Pool, the community has the opportunity for water-based fitness and fun year-round.
A ‘Re-launch Gathering’ for new interested and returning swimmers will be held Wednesday, Nov. 19, at 6:45 p.m., at the Boys & Girls Club.
We are looking forward to conditioning, team accountability, structure, and development in areas of stroke mechanics and character this winter through spring and would like to invite youth to join the team. Adults are welcome to join the club and a separate practice schedule would be made for ages 19 and up.
The current practice schedule will begin Dec. 2. Beginners/ages 10 and under (levels 1-3), Tuesdays, 4-5 p.m. Ages 11 and up (swim levels 3-5), Thursdays, 4-5 p.m. All youth swimmers, Saturdays, 4-6 p.m.
The fee will be just $10 per swimmer per month paid to Sierra County Swim Team. Swimmers are encouraged to pay at the beginning of the month and swim all month to get the most value and benefits! This fee will include pool entrance. An annual team registration fee (good for the year, May-April) of $35 will also be required. Based on fundraising and contributions, scholarship may be available.
For recreational swimmers, the City offers a free swim open swim the second and fourth Saturdays monthly, 1-4 p.m., and a variety of sessions throughout the week.
