Calling all swimmers and parents!
Team Tigershark, a club swim team affiliated with USA Swimming, will be starting practices next week, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 17th.
Ted Arnold and Kristy Miller, two of the Cleveland Heights High School swim coaches, will coach the team, and practices will be held from 4-5:30 PM Monday-Friday, and from 9-11 AM on Saturdays. Swimmers under age 10 will be in the water from 4:30 to 5:30 PM during the week, and from 10-11 AM on Saturdays. Additionally, swimmers under age 10 will have the option of signing up for 3 days of practices per week instead of 6. For swimmers 10 and older, dryland exercises (TRX and medicine balls) will be an option from approximately 5:30-6:30 PM during the week, as well.
This team is for any swimmer who is able to swim the length of the pool, up to age 18. Especially for new or younger swimmers, knowledge of the four competitive strokes is helpful, but not required. New swimmers' abilities will be assessed when practices begin. For high school swimmers, this team is a great opportunity to get back into swimming shape before the high school season begins in November. We hope to see both new faces and familiar faces from the Sea Serpents, Purvis Pirahnas and other area summer swim programs. If you know of other students, kids, and families in the community who might be interested in joining a swim team, please let them know about Team Tigershark. Monthly rates are as follows: for swimmers who live in the CH-UH school district: $35, for swimmers who live outside of the school district: $50, for swimmers under age 10 for 3 days/week: $30.
