The Martinsburg Marlins Summer Swim Team is open to pre-competitive, emergent, intermediate and advanced-level swimmers who wish to swim competitively in an encouraging, fun and family-friendly environment. This is a travel swim team which trains daily at Lambert Pool to compete with other summer teams in the Tri-State area. The program is open to the first 125 boys and girls from ages 5-18 years old, as of June 1, 2022. The swim season begins the first Tuesday after Memorial Day and concludes with a championship meet the last week of July. Practices will be held between 6:30am-10:00am (Monday-Friday) and 8:45am-11:00am (Saturdays) at Lambert Pool.
There will be an on-site open house for the 2022 season on Saturday, May 7th at Lambert Pool from 9:00am-12:00pm where you can meet the coaches and Marlins’ board of directors. Swimsuit fitting will also be available during this time.
The Pre-Competitive “Mini-Marlins” Program is open to swimmers entering kindergarten or older who are not yet familiar with basic competitive strokes or able to swim the entire length of the pool independently. Participants must be comfortable with entering the pool and capable of following the coach’s instruction. Swimmers in this group will have the opportunity to develop endurance and learn basic swim techniques required for competitive swimming. Participation in the non-travel, pre-competitive team and advancement to travel with the Marlins is determined by the head coach. Swimmers who sign up for this group should be prepared to transition at any time during the swim season once the coach recommends advancement to competitive Marlins; likewise, parents will be expected to volunteer during swim meets once transitioned.
Registration can be done online or in-person at the M-BC Parks & Recreation administrative office located at 273 Woodbury Avenue in Martinsburg.
