Sea Snakes Swim Team


The Shepherd University Wellness Center Sea Snakes Swim Team is committed to developing the character and self-discipline of young athletes through the sport of swimming. We provide the youth of our community with a safe and fun competitive swimming experience with year-round practices and swim meets. Our coaches encourage technique-based performance to develop swimmers to their highest potential. We are committed to the athletes’ success not only in swimming, but in life away from the pool. We strive to build a family atmosphere, where athletes can learn to be themselves while working toward their own personal goals.

Please note that it is at the discretion of the coaching staff whether the athlete meets these minimal requirements. The coaches reserve the right to advise alternative swimming programs (i.e. swim lessons) until the athlete is able to complete the requirements. All practice groups will have a 25-swimmer limit and will use half (4-lanes) of the pool. Any missed practice is a forfeit of instruction for that practice.

Registration and Enrollment Fee Breakdown
All group pricing is based on a per practice rate of $5.50/hr for all participants. All families will also be assessed a $50 registration fee. Session payment and family registration fee must be paid in full prior to the first day of practice and will be verified by the Team Administrator and Head Coach before swimmers may participate. The group enrollment fee (listed above for each group) covers costs such as paying coaches and lifeguards, pool usage, equipment maintenance, etc. The family registration fee covers costs that are unique to the summer program, such as the MASSL league fee, swim meet fees, concession fees, etc.
