Swim Team News

2019 Briarmeadow/WildeWest Swim Team sign-up April 14 1:00-3:00

It’s Swim Team Time!!! We are getting ready for the 2019 Summer Swim Team season and want you to come out and join us. The Briarmeadow/WildeWest Swim Team has enjoyed numerous years of success and fun due to a great group of swimmers and coaches. This will be my nine year old's fourth summer on the team and he has loved every minute of it. Intimidated by the schedule? Don't be! Come when you can, your kids get to swim and you get to meet more of your neighbors. We encourage all kids to join in the fun of our neighborhood swim team.

Swim Team is open to swimmers in Kindergarten through Grade 12. Our swim team is broken down by age group: 6&under, 7&8, 9&10, 11&12, 13&14, 15&up. Practice starts in May in the afternoons at 5:00. During June there are swim meets on Monday and Thursday evenings.

Registration gets kicked off this year during our annual Sign Up on Sunday, April 14th from 1-3 PM at Briarmeadow Club House (3203 Freshmeadows). This event is open to all residents interested in joining the swim team, or just wanting to learn more about the team. It is extremely helpful if you come by during these hours to register you child and not wait until practices begin. It really helps to know the number of swimmers on the team and will help us get started on other aspects of planning for the season. If you cannot make it to the sign-up, just let us know. We can make other arrangements to get your swimmers signed up!

Please note: The pool WILL NOT be open for swimming during registration.

Parents will be asked to volunteer their time at meets. There is a place for everyone and we need everyone!! So bring what ever it is that you use to keep yourself organized so you can volunteer for your spot. Our families make this team work and because of our great families we’ve enjoyed a fantastic tradition for many years!

The calendar and registration and sponsorship forms are attached. Other paperwork will be available at the sign-up.

We hope you will encourage your children to join our neighborhood swim team this year!

See you at registration!
