Makos Swim Team

Makos Swim Team
The Manchester Makos is a parent-governed, year round organization promoting competitive swimming.  We are dedicated to the development of young athletes in the water and in life.  Through the instruction of our coaches, we teach technique, team unity, and competitive racing strategies to swimmers of all levels.  Our goal is to make every swimmer successful at their optimal pace.  Through dedication and hard work each team member is afforded the opportunity to achieve one's full potential.  We strive to provide a healthy and motivating environment that promotes self-esteem and pride in one's accomplishments.

The swim team is for ages 4 to 18 and all swim levels.  The levels are from not able to swim yet (bubble-blowers) to swimming all 4 competitive strokes.  We teach and swim USA swimming standards.  We swim year round but take the month of August off.  Swimmers can sign-up at anytime.

For additional information, please visit the front desk of the Manchester Recreation Complex or give Coach Shawn Daniels a call at (931) 728-0273.
