Make a Difference

Thank you so much to all of our swimmers that came out on Feb. 18 Greenville Splash Night to volunteer time at the State Age Group Championships. We had a fabulous turnout to help our younger swimmers. Your help was very much appreciated by Team Greenville.

We are beyond excited to start our 2019 Adult Learn to Swim. Our team is full of swimmers that want to share their passion for swimming by teaching others to swim and be safe in the water. We will be teaching 50 adults to swim starting March 4.

Our next meet planning meeting is March 30th. We meet after Saturday workout to prepare for the Dixie Zone LCM Championships in June. It's a great feeling of giving back to our fellow swimmers around the country.
