The Aquatics Section sponsors a city-wide swim team program designed to introduce swimmers to the environment of competitive swimming.

Our rules are consistent with the U.S. Swimming rules.  Our pools are combined into 5 swim teams. During the season, swimmers will compete in dual meets against other city teams in the program.  Parents are responsible for participants’ transportation to and from swim meets. Practices are one hour per day, four days per week. Each team is coached by lifeguard staff selected by the Aquatics Section to be coaches.

Important Dates in 2014: (Dates are subject to change)

Mark your calendars!

Practices begin week of June 16. See pool schedule for practice dates and times.

Dual meets: Saturday mornings July 5, 12, 19, 26 & August 2 at Natomas HS, Oki and Pannell Meadowview Pools
