Shark Swimming and Diving 2022
The Gulf Coast HS Shark Swimming and Diving team is a varsity co-ed team that competes during the fall sports season. We are a competitive swim team where most members have experience already. Potential swimmers should be able to swim at least two of the four strokes for 50 yards without stopping. There will be time trials, and cuts are possible the first week. No experience is necessary for diving, but a willingness to learn and be fearless is helpful.
Here is some important information for you that needs to be taken care of before you come out to the pool August 1st. Please make sure to read everything. If you have questions, don’t hesitate to email the coaches.
