Team Phoenix is the development arm of the Friends' Central Aquatics' (FCA) competitive swim program.   All swimmers will 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.
