TFS to launch summer swim league
Tallulah Falls School is launching its 2022 Summer League Swim Team – the Tallulah Falls Torrents.
The Torrents is a developmental swimming program for children/youth ages 6-18, starting at any ability level. Swimmers will be grouped based on age/skill level.
Beginner swimmers will develop skills in the four competitive strokes, while the more experienced swimmers will fine-tune strokes to prepare for competition.
A parent/swimmer orientation* will be offered from 5-6 p.m. on Monday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 24 at the TFS Natatorium. Families are invited to attend on either day.
The orientation session will provide information on dates, times, swim levels, meets and include a time for questions. Your child’s swim skills will be assessed to determine placement. Please have your child bring a swimsuit, goggles and a towel.
*This meeting is an orientation/assessment and not a swim practice.
Practice Times and Dues
Practice will be every Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from May 23-July 15. Practices will be conducted from 4-6 p.m. and will feature a variety of swimming activities throughout the season.
