The Plateau Penguins seasonal swim team begins practice in mid-May and competes from June to July with the Midlakes Swim League. The program is open to swimmers of all levels, typically ages six and up. New swimmer assessments are conducted during the first week of practice to place children in their appropriate swim level. After 4 weeks of practice, time trials are held to determine competition eligibility. The team practices Monday through Thursday in the evenings with optional Saturday morning practice from mid May until school is released for the summer. Practices then switch to weekday mornings for the remainder of the season. Regular season swim meets occur weekly on Tuesday and Thursday evenings beginning mid-June.Swim team is a popular choice for the Plateau Club community, and is a great opportunity for your child to develop friendships, teamwork, and involvement with fellow club members!
An Affiliate Swim Team Only Membership is available for nonmembers of The Plateau Club. For more information and pricing for this special swim team only membership, please contact Recreation Manager Caitlin Manigley.
The Little Swimmer program is designed for children in the 5-8 age group who are not yet ready for a full summer of competitive swimming. Swimmers must be eager and able to swim one 25 freestyle with ease and one 25 backstroke with effort. Little Swimmers are expected to practice 2 days a week (M/W or T/Th). After four weeks of attending practices, Little Swimmers conclude their season by participating in the swim team time trials in early June. Participating in Little Swimmers allows children to have a positive and encouraging first swim team experience. Little Swimmers are also welcome to take part in all swim team activities and social events.
The Plateau Club offers many options for members looking to get involved in swim lessons.
