The East Longmeadow Marlins Swim Team is a year-round, developmental swim program for children ages 6 - 18. We accept swimmers of varying ability levels from beginner to advanced, providing a safe, healthy, and committed space which encourages swimmers to grow and develop as young athletes, while also having fun and learning to enjoy the sport from all aspects. Our mission is to pass on a love of the sport in an established swim family that prioritizes high standards of commitment and stroke development and builds a level of trust within the pool and on deck between swimmers, coaches, and families. Previous swim experience is required. Swimmers who are new to the program will need to attend a new swimmer evaluation.

- 50 yards of freestyle
- 50 yards of backstroke

- 50 yards of streamline kick on their back
