The Somerton Swim Team is a summer program designed to develop the physical skills for swimmers of all abilities. Swimmers will be challenged both mentally and physically while gaining the benefits of a life long sport. By gaining positive friendships as well as learning the importance of hard work and determination, we hope to encourage our swimmers to be favorable role models throughout their lives.
Training during practice will vary based on age and performance of each individual swimmer. Practice will mostly revolve around technique work on all four strokes as well as starts and turns for the younger age groups and a mix of technique and high intensity training for the older swimmers. Swimmers will be highly motivated to work hard individually and as a team to reach their goals for the season.
The Sharks are part of the Lower Bucks Swim League. We practice Monday thru Friday starting in June. We have a approximately 6 meets throughout the summer which are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings. There are optional invitational meets that are held on weekends. The swim season ends by end of July or first week in August.
The Sharks have many fun events planned that help to boost our team spirit:
