A Letter from Matt Sheehan, Swim Coach:
The Stratford Swim Team competes in the Tri-County Swim League. Practices begin after Memorial Day and the season culminates with a Championship meet the first weekend in August. The team conducts daily practices to teach proper stroke mechanics and to organize workouts for all of the swimmers.
The team consists of approximately one hundred and forty swimmers between the ages 4 and 18. The ability of the swimmers ranges from beginner to collegiate level. There are three team designations; A Team, B Team, and Dolphin School. The A Team competes in five dual meets on Saturday mornings. The B Team participates in several Wednesday night meets. The Dolphin School works on water readiness with the goal of participating in Wednesday night B Meets. "A" Swimmers will be competing in the Jack Hafner Burlington County Championship meet on July 29th and may also qualify for the Tri-County Championship Meet August 5th and 6th. Jack Hafner is a new event so plan accordingly.
The goal of the coaches is to teach the sport of swimming in a fun, stress-free atmosphere. The team has pep-rallies, parties, and a team banquet where swimmers and recognized for the participation, improvement, and outstanding performances.
The Coaching staff brings a wealth of teaching, coaching, and swimming experiences to the Swim Team.
We are looking forward to another successful and fun filled Tri-County season in 2017!
Regards, Matt Sheehan
Thank you to our coaches and volunteers, who have done a wonderful job in helping the swim team to become so successful. We have once again said goodbye to some of our best volunteers as their swimmers have graduated. Because of that, we are asking for new parents and friends to step forward. We have lots to do and have a good time doing it at the meets and during our various fundraising activities.
It’s going to be a great summer. We look forward to lots of new achievements, great meets and fun times. Stay tuned for more info and updates as the weather gets warmer!
