Swim

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.

Swim Groups:
Pike Tykes
Open to swimmers 8 and Under who can swim a 25 yard freestyle, but not ready for meets at the beginning of the season.   The  goal for this group is to progress to competition during the season. 

8 and Under Age Group
This is our entry level group.  Swimmers need to be able to swim both freestyle and backstroke.  Competition will consist of 25 yard events in each stroke.  There will also be both a medley and freestyle relays.   Swimmers will be assigned to lanes based upon their ability levels and training needs.

9-10 Age Group
This age group will compete in 50 meter races, as well as the 100 Individual Medley.  Swimmers will learn to do effective flip-turns and develop more endurance for racing.  Additionally, an emphasis on stroke development will continue.  Swimmers will be assigned to lanes based upon ability and training needs.

11-12 Age Group
Swimmers will continue to compete in 50 meter races and 100 meter Individual Medley.  Practices will continue to focus on technique and endurance.  Swimmers will be assigned to lanes based upon training needs.

13-14 Age Group
