Swim Team at Tara is a great way for swimmers to participate in a competitive swim program that will develop and improve their skills and sportsmanship-while having fun and making friendships in a team
environment! Tara swim team is a summer league program and is a member of the Greater Baton Rouge Swim League. Practices are held throughout the months of May and June. Swimmers who are eligible,
may compete in meets against other clubs and also in the City Championship meet at the end of June. All members and non-member children are encouraged to participate!
Who Can Participate?
Any child who is 5 years or older, and can swim with little or no assistance for the entire length of the pool. Children 4 years or younger may participate as long as they can swim the entire length of the pool.
When Does It Start?
Practices will begin Monday, May 15th, and continue every week until June 23rd. We will offer afternoon practices throughout the month of May and then offer morning practices starting after Memorial Day.
All practice times will be based on age group.
