Announcing the formation of

We are delighted to announce that Seabrook Swimming Club is soliciting members. The club is intended for members to have fun while enhancing their swimming experience and will be for any level of participant from wanna-be swimmers who want to learn, to Masters swimmers who love to compete.
Our mission will be:
To encourage and support the swimming goals of all members of the Seabrook Island community.
To encourage participation in athletic, fitness or recreational swimming and foster socialization among the members.
To help provide teaching and coaching to swimmers and would-be swimmers alike.
To engage in volunteerism and collaboration in outreach swimming lessons for local communities.
To advocate for optimal resource allocation for all Seabrook Island swimmers.
