Competitive Swim Team for boys and girls up to age 14. There is no minimum age requirement for participation. Any boy or girl up to and including the age of 14 who lives within the parish boundaries, qualifies for a residency exception, or attends the Divine Wisdom Academy is eligible. While we do work on improving stroke techniques, this is not swimming lessons. Children must be able to swim 25 yards (1 lap of the pool) without assistance or stopping to join. Swimming test will be given the first day of practice for all new swimmers.
