Normandy Park Swim Team

In conjunction with the Greater Seattle Summer Swim League, NPSC has a competitive swim program for NPSC members. Emphasis is on fun through exercise, improvement in skills, competition, team spirit and involvement with other kids. Swimmers learn the four competitive strokes plus racing starts and turns. All swimmers must be able to pass the swim test, which includes swimming the length of the pool and treading water for five minutes to attend swim practices and meets.

We have a place for all NPSC members in our summer swim program and welcome all who are interested to come to a workout, meet the coaches, and join the fun!
