Sign Up Now for the Euclid Summer Swim Team

Looking for a fun, competitive and rewarding activity for your kids this summer? Sign them up for the Euclid Panther Summer Swim Team. If your child can swim 25 yards, then he or she can participate. The team practices outdoors each morning at Memorial Pool. Your child will be assigned a time based on ability. Evening practices will also be held on Tuesday and Thursdays from 6:30 - 7:45 p.m.  Most parents see a great improvement in their child’s swimming ability after a season on the swim team.

The fee is $60 for a resident and $85 for a non-resident. There is an additional $50 family fee payable to the parents’ association. Many swimmers earn the $50 family fee participating in the team’s swim-a-thon, which happens during a practice session in July.

Registration is underway at Euclid City Hall, 585 East 222nd St. Download a copy of the registration form from To get the resident rate, don't forget to bring proof of residency -- a driver's license and a utility bill.

Please remember that you must have a signed registration from in to City Hall before you enter the water on the day of our first morning practice, Tuesday, June 12 at 8 a.m. American Red Cross Certified Water Safety Instructors will be on deck to evaluate swimmers.

Dual Meets are held Saturday Morning at various municipal pools. Our coaches this year are Kelsey Saywell, Emily Sweet, Jack Joyce and Dan Essel – all former Euclid Panther swimmers!
