Middle School Swim & Dive Club
The Williamston Middle School Swim and Dive Club is for boys and girls in grades 6th through 8th. 5th graders may join with coach approval. The team competes in seven swim/dive meets during the season which runs from mid-November to end of January. The goal is to build a program that allows middle school students to have fun, improve their swimming and diving skills, and see the results through fun, non-stressful competitive meets.
Coaches will emphasize the importance of learning the fundamentals of the four main strokes—freestyle, backstroke, butterfly and breaststroke and/or the beginning diving fundamentals. Other important components of the season will be learning the format of swim and dive meets, and coaching on respect, teamwork and camaraderie.
The Mid-Michigan area offers many youth swim opportunities in addition to those offered by the Williamston Community Pool, Williamston Middle School or Williamston High School and Williamston youth are strongly encouraged to participate in outside “club” swimming during the off season.
