Register for Summer Swim Team

Come and enjoy the most family friendly team environment!

by Paul & Anne Kurtz – April 21, 2017

Parents of all area youth who may be interested in having their children swim on a Summer Swim Team, it’s time to register for the Wellsboro Summer Swim Team. The program offers the most family friendly team environment available in all of youth sports. Every swimmer participates in four events at every swim meet. Swimmers of all abilities beginner, intermediate, or advanced are welcomed and encouraged. This is your opportunity to find out about a fun and enthusiastic Swimming program available in the Northern Tier of Pennsylvania. If you have ever wanted to ask a question about competitive swimming on a team, this is your opportunity.

The Wellsboro Swim Team is open to all swimmers between the ages 5 – 18 and is comprised of youth from all surrounding communities. The only requirement is each swimmer must be capable of swimming continuously for 25 yards, which is one length of the pool. We encourage any child living in our area with the desire to swim to join our team. The Wellsboro Summer Swim Team now competes in the twelve team Greater Susquehanna Valley Aquatic League (GSVAL).

Practice schedules are extremely flexible, offering both a day and/or evening weekday practice to fit your schedule. There are no practices scheduled on the weekends. Practices and home meets take place at the Wellsboro Packer Park pool – the only heated outdoor Olympic sized pool in the entire Northern Tier. The season starts on June 7th and ends with a league Championship meet on Saturday July 29th. That is just 8 weeks for a complete youth sports season. All meets are scheduled for Wednesday evenings or Saturday mornings. We have three home meets and three away meets on our 2017 schedule plus a season ending Championship meet. Parents, there is no other sport available to your family that allows everyone (boys and girls, elementary to high school) to participate in a single team format like the Wellsboro Summer Swim Team program.

Swimmer Program Registration night is scheduled for Friday April 28th at the Wellsboro Community Center located at 3 Queen Street Wellsboro. Early Bird Registration cost is $35 for 1st child and $30 for each sibling plus a pool usage or membership fee. We will also have D&J Sports operating their Cash & Carry swim shop where your swimmers can pick up any necessary swimming items such as suits, caps, bags, or goggles. The Wellsboro Summer Swim Team is an excellent opportunity for any individual to get a jump on their conditioning for fall sports. All swimmers learn and refine new strokes while becoming much stronger swimmers. It’s healthy, it’s outdoors, it’s at the Pool, and it’s FUN!
