Looking for a Summer Swim Team near Arlington/Mansfield

Hi Moms. I am looking for a summer swim team for my 3 kids, ages 7, 9, and 10. I don't want to enroll them in one of the full-year swim teams, but rather one that swims just for the summer. I've looked through Arlington Parks and Rec but only saw swim lessons. I looked online but only found swim teams that swim year-round at indoor pools. I'm really searching for a more traditional summer team, like the kind I swam in when I was a kid. Any ideas? I live in S. Arlington, so of course I won't want to drive too far for daily practices. THANKS!

What can I do next?

Mansfield definitely has year-round swimming, but I don't think they have a summer team. What you want is a team aligned with TAAF (Texas Amateur Athletic Federation.) The Keller Barracudas is one such team. I know they are too far from you, but you may be able to contact them and find out if there is still an Arlington team. It used to be the Arlington Stingrays and they swam out of the Hugh Smith pool, but they aren't around anymore. I know there are teams in Grapevine, Southlake and Bedford. Call the directors of Arlington, Mansfield or Grand Prarie Parks & Rec, the Mansfield Natatorium or email the person on TAAF in charge of swimming.

Another option is to contact your nearest YMCA and see what they have because they may also have a summer league.

Just found this: http://www.taafregion4.org/Region_4_Swimming.html
Email them at [email protected]____.com and see if they can help you.
Arlington is region 4, but Grand Prairie is in region 7 and they show a swim team. That may be your best bet if you can't find one in Arlington. http://www.eteamz.com/taafregion7/news/index.cfm?cat=393731

I know that the Grand Prairie Natatorium has a summer swim team, and it is only like $40 for the whole summer. Good Luck!

Check with Mansfield's Natatorium. My son took swim lessons there last year, but I could tell that there were swim teams practicing. I have no idea if they are year round or just summer, but it would be worth checking into.

Have you looked into TCU? They have swim lessons there, but also some swim and diving teams. don't know how the set up is, but might be worth checking out.
