For the first time since the 1986 establishment of the Sierra County Swim Team, an off-season swim club is being launched! Youth swimmers are invited to join throughout the winter to spring seasons and can expect conditioning, team accountability, structure, and development in areas of stroke mechanics and character. Adults are welcome to join the club and a separate practice schedule would be made for ages 19 and up.
The current youth practice schedule, which started this week, is:
- Beginner’s/swim level 1-2/Under 10 years old: Tuesdays, 4-5 p.m.
- Ages 10 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, scholarships may be available. New swimmers, please arrive 15 minutes before practice to complete registration.
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.
If you are considering providing a swimmer sponsorship or making a financial contribution, we invite you to contact one of the team representative listed. We thank you in advance.
