REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN!
Old Pike Swim Team offers training and competition for swimmers of all ages and abilities. Swimmers must be able to successfully complete both 25 freestyle and backstroke to be a member of the team. We offer swim lessons for swimmers that do not yet have these abilities. Our summer swim team is designed to provide instruction, stroke refinement, and competition. Most of all, we want our swimmers to have fun and develop a love of the sport.
