There’s excitement in the air as the school year is winding down and the days of summertime fun are almost here. In preparation for the upcoming season, the Leonia Lions Swim Team will be accepting applications from new and returning swimmers the first two Saturdays in June. Membership is open to all children from ages 5 to 17.
If your child would like to join our team you can pick up a registration form at the Leonia Recreation Center located at 370-Broad Avenue. No need for prior racing experience, swimmers of all levels are welcome to join. We only require that children can swim unassisted from one end of the pool to another, and that they are members of the Leonia Swim Club.
Please note: this is not swim lessons, children must have prior experience swimming on their own in deep water.
All new members that are 5 & 6 years old will be taking a swim test on June 9th. Those that cannot safely swim from one end of the pool to the other, will be placed on our junior-team, The Leonia Cubs. They will practice with the rest of the team during the season and compete in their own special swim meet at the end of July.
Practice begins on June 9th and the team will start competing against other towns in July. Please consider registering your child. It’s lots of fun and a great form of exercise!
