Team Phoenix

Team Phoenix is the development arm of the Friends' Central Aquatics' (FCA) competitive swim program. 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.  Register Here

Team Phoenix practices at Bryn Mawr College, in the Bern Schwartz Gymnasium, three days a week (Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday) from 6:30 to 8:00 PM. Attendance at practice is encouraged but there are no practice requirements. Swim meets are optional as well.**

**Team Phoenix practices will be located at Friends' Central School for the remainder of the 2020 year. We will reevaluate the location for 2021 in the near future.**

Swimmers should be able to swim at least 25 yards in 2 of the 4 primary strokes before joining. If you are unsure about your child's readiness for Team Phoenix, we suggest you set up a stroke evaluation by calling the FCA office at (610) 658-5632 or emailing us at:
