The Walnut Sharks Swim Team program is designed for children ages 6 to 18 who are interested in a competitive swim program.
The program takes place during the summer and winter season. Children must attend a try-out during which they must meet the minimum requirements set forth by the Sharks’ Head Coach.
RETURNING SWIMMERS: Returning swimmers that were in the Beginners group and any Intermediate group swimmers who did not participate in the Summer Conditioning program must attend a Re-evaluation.
Tryouts and practices take place at the Walnut High School Pool (400 Pierre Rd., Walnut, CA). Please contact the Walnut Gymnasium and Teen Center for more information.
If A SWIMMER HAS NOT PARTICIPATED IN THE SHARKS SWIM TEAM WITHIN THE LAST TWO CONSECUTIVE YEARS, HE/SHE MUST ATTEND TRY-OUTS AS A NEW SWIMMER.
New Swimmers: New swimmers MUST attend try-outs. Swimmers will be contacted 3-4 days after trying out of their status. Team eligibility is determined by the swimmers ability to meet established standards and by team level availability. There are three levels within the team which are based on swimmers’ abilities: Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced.
Registration: If your child meets all qualifications and if offered a spot on the Sharks Swim Team, he/she must register with the City of Walnut.
The Sharks Swim Team will only participate in Southern California Municipal Athletic Federation (SCMAF) sanctioned activities. SCMAF provides the recreational swimmer with great opportunities for new and fun challenges.
