Beechwood Sharks

Swim Team

The Beechwood Recreation Association sponsors the Beechwood Sharks Swim Team. Our objective is to foster competitive summer swimming in a safe and fun atmosphere. Children do not need to be “expert” swimmers to belong to the Sharks but they do need to be able to swim. The swim team does not provide basic swimming instruction. Team membership is open to children up to the age of 18 whose families are members in good standing of the Association. Every member of the team will have the opportunity to swim in the meets. The Sharks compete in the Greater Peninsula Swimming Association (GPSA) and swim meets are conducted under GPSA rules. Our competition schedule is enclosed. The season will conclude with a Team Awards Banquet.

Being an organization run by volunteers, we are always in need of people to help out in various ways. Our aging pool and the buildings on the property need ongoing maintenance, repairs, plumbing, electrical work, lawn care, help with membership, event planning, folks willing to step into upcoming vacancies for board positions, and other things. Help us keep Beechwood Pool a wonderful place for our community by setting aside some time to contribute. Volunteers earn guest passes and other rewards! Annual members will earn double hours worth of rewards, and seasonal members will earn single hours worth of rewards.
