The City Swordfish Swim Team participates in the Jefferson Swim League (JSL) from June through July.

Participants cannot switch practice days or times throughout the summer. Swimmers may OPT to swim in the 3 dual meets available this season.

Contact will be made to each family regarding your assigned practice time during June 1-11. Due to capacity restrictions and COVID-19 precautions swimmers reservations will be based on the questions answered during registration.

The Dual Meets will not be scored this year; swimmers times will be recorded and the City will continue its weekly tradition of announcing time improvements each week for the appropriate age group that swam in the previous swim meet. The JSL has not decided on if they will hold a CHAMPS – end of the season – swim meet; this will be decided in mid-June. Registered families will notified once a decision is made.

It takes about 80 volunteers to assist with the running of a swim meet; more information will be sent to families via the Swordfish Family Gmail account providing this information on sign up, precautions, and other pertinent questions or concerns.
