You are here: Swim Team

Redwood Swim Team is established primarily as a recreational swim team program. The goals are: to provide an organized, recreational aquatic activity for the summer; to introduce youngsters to a low-key competitive swimming situation; to allow all swimmers a fair chance to participate in a meaningful way; to build endurance and improve skill; and, to provide a variety of children (age, skill, experience) an opportunity to work together toward a common goal.

Redwood Swim Team is open to all member children to age 18. Some swimmers start on the team as early as ages 5 & 6, but most start at age 7 or later. Some practice time is devoted to the instruction of proper stroke technique, but swim team practice is not a substitute for swim lessons. The Redwood staff recommends that any child unable to swim the length of the pool at the conclusion of the first week of practice postpone participation with the swim team for a season. Redwood Swim Team participates in the Akron Metropolitan Swim Association (AMSA) - a league chartered to foster a sense of teamwork through competitive recreational swimming without grueling practices or strict standards of performance. However, due to the large number and the wide variety in skill of swimmers expected to participate on the Redwood Swim Team, we can make no promise that all swimmers will be able to participate on an equal level at all meets. Although every reasonable effort will be made to qualify each swimmer for the AMSA Championship Meet, we can make no promise that all swimmers qualified to compete at the Championship Meet will be included in the line-up for that meet.

Many team members introduced to competitive swimming through Redwood have gone on to participate in area year-round aquatic clubs. We look forward to the return of those swimmers, and to the participation of the swimmers who return each summer simply for the fun, exercise and recreation of Redwood Swim Team. We also look forward to new participants eager to try our summer swim team!
