Metro Marlins Swim Team - Fall/Winter

Updates from Head Swim Coach - Claudia Minde (973) 530-3923

Dear Marlins,

Thank you all for an amazing Fall/Winter season. We are so happy that many of you have continued swimming with us this spring. We are working a LOT on stroke technique. The swimmers are really improving their strokes and during practices we often have kids watch each other’s strokes, watch video clips of Olympic swimmers, have the coaches get in the water with the kids, and more!!

For those of you who are taking a break we will be opening registration for next year's Fall/Winter season in early August. Stay tuned for more details. 

Enjoy the beautiful weather and see you on the pool deck!

Metro Marlins Swim Team

The JCC Metro Marlins Swim Team is a comprehensive competitive swim program. The program's mission is to enhance and progress swimming skills while developing self-respect and discipline, sportsmanship, and commitment through healthy competition. The team is co-ed, with swimmers of varying skills and abilities from the ages of 5 through high school.

JCC Metro Marlins Swim Team focuses on stroke technique and endurance training. During the Fall/Winter season we will have 4 to 5 duel meets and 2 to 3 league meets.

All Metro Marlins Swim Team members are expected to participate in away meets by traveling to other JCC hosting swim team. These teams are all located within about an hour drive or less of our facility. All Metro Marlins Swim Team parents are expected to participate by volunteering to help host and run home swim meets, and other team building and social events.

During our Spring season we focus on breaking down all four competitive stokes and working on stroke technique and efficiency.
