Recreational Swim & Dive Teams Surprise offers two recreational swim teams that compete in the West Valley Swim League which consists of teams from the City of Surprise and the City of Peoria. Practices are Monday-Thursday with meets and special events on Friday and Saturdays. Returning swimmers must register in person to verify past participation. New swimmers & divers are REQUIRED to try-out prior to registration. Try-outs are available Monday - Thursday at the Surprise Aquatic Center. Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards’ freestyle & backstroke continuously & demonstrate all four competitive strokes. Divers must be comfortable enough to swim across the pool & be comfortable going off the diving board.
The City of Surprise Swim and Dive Teams often invite 6 - 8 former or current swim team members between 14 - 17 who would like to volunteer their time and talent to help support the teams as a Junior Coach. The primary duties would include supporting the Swim Coaches during team practices and swim meets, offering young swimmers tips to improve their skills, and allow coaches to conduct practices in a safe manner.
