Academic All American

USA Swimming has a program that they call Academic All American but that is only for Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors in high school and have super fast qualifying times. We will start our own Swim Florida Lehigh All American program. Go to our dedicated page to read more.

New Group Structure

We have started to organize our practices by groups. Two Senior groups and three age group groups plus coach Lois beginner groups. The biggest difference will be noticed after new year's and the days when we have more coaches on the pool deck.

Team Store

We now have a team store where you can buy our League suits, practice equipment, and other equipment at some of the best prices that I have found.

We will also place a team order a few times a year where we might be able to save on shipping costs and might be able to receive discounts on some items if we order enough (see your coaches for more details).

New Covers @ Riverdale HS

The new covers for the Riverdale High School pool arrived yesterday and here is a picture after we put them on the pool. We want to thank Lee County Parks and Rec. for ordering them and we want to thank the parents, swimmers and coaches who helped us unpack them and get them on to the pool after practice.
