The Cavalier Sharks Swim Team is ready to kick-off another great swim season! Following a successful season last year, this year looks to be even better. Our swim team is open to all the children and grandchildren at the Cavalier Golf & Yacht Club. This upcoming season, we anticipate as many as 100 children, ages 4-18 participating on the team.
Calling All Paddlers
The paddlers group is for 3 and 4 year olds who are not physically ready to make it across a lane on their own. It can also be for those 5 year olds who are not quite ready to participate in a meet. Our goal is to have each paddler swim in the last meet of the season, if they are willing and ready! Contact Bonnie Dupre for more information on the Paddlers group
