Sharks Swim Club

Sharks Swim Club is a competitive swim club within a fun and positive environment. Our swimmers range from our little Puppy Sharks through to our Elite Senior Sharks; many of whom represent Bermuda in International swim meets like Carifta, CISC and CCCAN. We are very proud to have several Alumni who have represented Bermuda at the Commonwealth and Olympic Games.

Sharks Swim Club is led by Head Coach Ben Smith who works with an amazing team of coaches. Our coaches will help your child transition into the swim club environment and take their swimming to the next level. The success of our club is measured not only by our dominance of age group champions and elite swimmers but through the development of your child as well rounded sports men and women.

Sharks swimmers train hard, have fun and build great friendships as they progress through the program. While pool sessions are separated by levels, our land and beach training, as well as social events, promote interaction between swimmers of all levels.

We recognize the importance that the social role of the club plays. We hold many social events throughout the year, including a beach BBQ, a fun day at National Sports Centre, kids Christmas parties, awards dinners, in-house club swim meets and fundraising events such as our annual car wash. The club is based at Warwick Academy pool with long course sessions being held at National Sports Centre for senior level swimmers.

Puppy Sharks – Our beginner program. We take swimmers of any age who can complete a length of the pool.

Junior Sharks – Our juniors work on mastering the technique of all 4 strokes. Junior swimmers can be entered for BASA development meets.

Intermediate Sharks – Our intermediates work on improving their stroke technique and building stamina. Intermediates may be swimming at development meet or standard meet level.

Senior Sharks – Our senior swimmers continue to improve both technique and stamina. Our seniors swim at standard meet level and many will qualify for National Team level also.

Swimmer’s levels and abilities are frequently reviewed, allowing for progression through the groups per term.
