Swim Team St. Albans SHARKS!
St. Albans Sharks Swim Team is a member of the Champlain Valley Swim League and participates in 7 league meets, district, and state events. The swim team is a great way to improve swim skills, challenge yourself and meet new friends. Requirements: Team members must be able to swim the length of the pool. (25 Yards) Parents of swimmers participating in meets must volunteer to work a minimum of 6 meets(jobs) (home or away) or pay a $200 opt out of volunteering charge. Team families must also attend a mock meet (date TBA) before the first scheduled meet. This will be an opportunity to learn what each volunteer position entails, and how a meet runs. For more complete information, scroll down to Parent's Info Packet and click on it.
Choose whichever option works best for your swimmer.
