Metro Swim to Return Summer 2021 Introducing Metro Dive

Metro swimming will return this summer (2021) and will be introducing the addition of Metro Diving. Unfortunately, we will not have a Metro Polo program due the inherent close-contact nature of the sport. We hope to see it return summer 2022.

Participation includes practices on weekdays, swim meets on Saturdays, and Diving on Fridays.

It is a competitive league where fun is emphasized.

Sign up for swim team begins on mass lesson registration day (May 8th, 2021 at 12:00 pm). Please see the Swim Lessons page for times and dates.

The cost for metro league for the summer is $38. If you have multiple children the first child is $38 and each additional child will cost $27.50. This price includes daily practice and swim meets on Saturdays.

Please also sign and bring the Parent Code of Conduct when you sign your children up for swim team or water polo. Each pool has a limit of 50 total swimmers on each team this season.
