Free Youth Community Swim Team Tryouts

LEAP Launches Free Youth Community Swim Team


What: With support from the USA Swimming Foundation, LEAP is starting a seven-week competitive community swim team this summer for youth ages 6 to 15 to join with no cost. Children do not need to be in other LEAP programs to participate in the swim team.


Where: LEAP Community Center at 31 Jefferson Street, New Haven, CT 06511


When: Swim team tryouts for all skill levels will be held on Friday, June 23, 2017, 6 pm - 8 pm, and Saturday, June 24, 2017, 10 am - 12 pm. It is mandatory that kids try out so that we can place them in the appropriate group based on skill level. Participants must demonstrate their ability to swim the length of the pool without stopping. If children are not able to meet this standard, we will recommend they instead join LEAP's swim lessons that occur year-round.


Evening swim team practices will be from 6-7:30 pm at the heated LEAP pool at 31 Jefferson Street in New Haven. Practice will begin Wednesday, June 28th, and meets will be held Saturdays starting July 15th (10 am-1 pm).


Who: LEAPs mission is to develop the strengths and talents of young leaders who implement year-round, community and school-based programming designed to achieve positive academic and social outcomes for children living in high poverty urban neighborhoods.  Since 1992, LEAP (www.leapforkids.org) has led the movement to provide children and youth with opportunities to thrive in all areas of their lives. Through a year-round after-school and summer camp program, LEAP serves more than 1,000 young people each year, ages 7 through 15, with a literacy-based curriculum and classes in the arts, computer science, swimming, athletics, camping, cooking, and team building. In addition, LEAP trains and employs more than 200 high school and college students to help run these programs.
