Seattle Parks Summer Swim League registration is under way

Want to get in shape and have some fun this summer? Register for Summer Swim League!

Seattle Parks and Recreation offers a positive team experience for novice swimmers and teaches them the skills they need to become competitive swimmers in a fun, low-pressure environment. Registration is currently under way.

This is a novice league appropriate for kids of all ages, including those who are just being introduced to swimming, all the way up to high school students who swim for their school teams. Many parents have said that the program helped build their child’s self-esteem and swimming ability.

Participants must be 7-18 years old and able to swim in deep water for at least 25 yards (one length of the pool). The program includes up to five one-hour workouts each week, two dual meets and two larger championship meets.

Registration is open at Southwest, Rainier Beach, Queen Anne, Evans, Meadowbrook, Madison and Medger Evers pools. Practice times vary, depending on the pool and the child’s age.

The cost for the program is $130 and includes a team t-shirt. There is a low-income option ($65) available for those who qualify.

The program begins on Monday, June 23, and ends with the All-City Swim Meet on Saturday, Aug. 2.
