The Sunset Hills Swim and Dive Team is for kids from novice to high school. We have swim/dive meets (typically on Wednesdays) and daily morning practices throughout June and half of July. It's a casual and fun environment and a great way for your young swimmer to participate in a low-pressure, life-skill sport.
Swim Team Coaches: Jacob Sutej, Laina Bayles, and Thomas Lundin - firstname.lastname@example.org
Dive Team Coach: Diane Pehrson - email@example.com

Swim Team Practice Schedule: Monday - Friday (Fridays are fun days); 11 and older: 8 - 9 a.m. ; 10 and under: 9 - 10 a.m. ; *Novice Group: 10 - 10:45 a.m.
*The novice group introduces swimmers to competitive swimming in a fun environment. To join the novice group, swimmers must be able to complete one length of a 25-yard pool, with no stops and no assistance. Correct stroke technique is not necessary to enter this level. Swimmers will be introduced to freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly. They will learn how to do legal starts and turns, and will work to improve their stroke technique. Novice swimmers are welcome but not required to participate in meets.
Dive Team Practice Schedule: 10 and Under: M/W/F - 8 to 9 a.m.; 11 and Older: T/W/F (will look at adding Monday down the road)* - 9 to 10 a.m. **No dive practice Thursdays after the meets**
