Welcome to the Greenmeadow Marlins!
The Greenmeadow Marlins is a community based swim team that participates in a summer league and also offers year round practices and lessons. While the Marlins love to swim fast, the main goal is making as many friends as you do waves.
Why Join a Summer Swim Team: Swimming is a unique sport in that boys and girls aged 4 to 18 are all equal members of the team. Swimming is almost guaranteed to exhaust your kids with a solid work out, but they come home fresh and clean! Swimmers compete in individual events and there are also mixed gender relays, which are a highlight for swimmers and parents alike.
Eligibility: The swim team is for children aged 4-18 as of May 31st who are able to swim one lap of the pool (25 yards) safely and unassisted in at least one of the four strokes. Nineteen year olds are eligible if they turned 19 before June 1 of their senior year of high school. Our Jr. Marlins program is offered for our 4-7 year old swimmers who are still beginners.
Practices: We offer swim practice on a year round basis, but our summer league swim practices start in April and runs through mid-July. While practice is offered 5 days per week in the summer, there is not need for your swimmers to come everyday. For younger swimmers, three times per week is appropriate. You can see the full schedule on the Practice tab.
Meets: We have one practice meet, five dual meets on Saturday mornings, and one Champs meet with all of the teams in our league. You can have all your meet questions answered here.
Parent Volunteering: Other than our professional coaches, the meets and social events are run entirely by our wonderful Marlin parents. All parents are expected to work a meet job if they have a child swimming, one Spirit Job (helping with a social activity), and bring food to one Friday Night Dinner.
Fun Stuff: The Marlins are all about having good old fashion summer fun with poolside dinners, movies and popcorn in the clubhouse, teen only social events, pep rallies, and the famous Greenmeadow 4th of July Party.
