Registration for the Charlestown Sharks Summer Swim team is open now through June 6th. Click here to view our registration link / portal.
Be sure to follow them on Twitter @CtownSwimming and they can also be found on Facebook under Charlestown Swimming.
The summer swim team is open for all boys and girls ages 4-18. There are some basic competition requirements which require swimmers to be able to swim the length of the pool, but we work with the young ones to ensure they can do this. The season runs through July 14th. The cost is $80 per swimmer. For families with two children, the second child is discounted to $50, and $45 for the third child. The maximum family cost is $175, and those who register and pay online by June 6th will receive a free t-shirt.
Unfortunately, due to on-going mechanical issues with the CMS pool, our team is forced to hold our practices at River Valley Middle School in Jeffersonville. Also, due to construction at RVMS, our meets will take place at New Washington High School. While we understand that this is not optimal for our Charlestown families, we hope you will endure this inconvenience with us for a fun 2018 swim season! We apologize for the inconvenience and hope that Greater Clark Schools will continue to work on ways to address our pool issue so that our program may continue to grow.
The Charlestown Sharks Swim Team is a non-profit volunteer-based organization that is committed to helping kids become better, more confident swimmers by improving their stroke techniques and personal goals, all while providing a fun, non-intimidating and safe atmosphere. Swimming is an excellent, life-long form of exercise which helps kids maintain and/or improve their fitness levels. The “TEAM” part of our club gives kids a social group with which to grow and mature for years to come!
The Charlestown Sharks Swim Team participates in the Southern Indiana Swim Association (SISA) summer league, which runs between the months of May and July.
