If you are interested in joining the Swim Team or Team Phoenix and you missed the evaluation nights, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to try and set up a day/time for an evaluation.
Team Phoenix is the development arm of the Friends' Central Aquatics' (FCA) competitive swim program. All swimmers must be registered with United States Swimming through the Middle Atlantic Swimming LSC. This group is for swimmers between the ages of 9 and 15 who want to explore or participate on a competitive team but may not be ready to specialize or meet the demands of a travel team. The spring season is also a great “jump start” opportunity for those kids that participate in summer league swimming.
Swimmers must be able to swim at least 25 yards in free and back and show some understanding of breast and fly. All new participants need to be evaluated before joining.
Fall, Winter, and Spring. Each session will require separate registration.
Fall: September 13th - December 8th
Winter: January 3rd - March 26th
Spring: April 11th - May 25th
All practices are held at Friends' Central School (Upper School Campus) located at 1101 City Avenue, Wynnewood, PA, 19096. You can view a map of the campus here. The pool is in Building 11, participants will enter from building 9, the Shimada Athletic Center. Once in Shimada, take the long hallway to your left and it will lead you to the pool.
Three practices a week are offered. While there are no weekly practices requirements for Team Phoenix members, the more your swimmer participates at practices the more improvement you can expect to see.
FALL 2022 days and times are:
Team Phoenix Members will not participate in swim meets.
New this year: USA Swimming has changed their registration process and all families will now be responsible for self registering for USA Swimming at the beginning of the season.
