TigerSharks 2018/19 Season is Here!
A recreational swim team for ages 7 and up, the Gordon JCC’s TigerSharks Swim Team participates as part of the YMCA of Middle Tennessee Swim Club (YMTSC) during the Fall and Spring sessions. Our swimmers practice for 3 days a week and receive approximately 60% instruction and 40% conditioning to prepare them for meets. TigerSharks is a great way for swimmers to increase their speed, technique, and endurance.
There is a mandatory meeting for all swim team parents on the JCC indoor pool deck on Thursday, September 6th at 4:30pm. Parents and swimmers will have the opportunity to meet the coaches, order suits, complete paperwork, get meet schedule and ask any questions before practice starts Thursday, September 13.
Practices are held every Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 4:30pm – 5:30pm. The first day of practice is September 13th at 4:30pm. Note: There is no practice Sept. 18th, Nov. 22nd & 23rd, Dec 24th & 25th due to the holidays.
