Talbot Swim Club Registration Opens for 2022 Season

Talbot Swim Club (TSC) has officially opened registration for both returning and new swimmers for the 2022 season. TSC is a summer recreational swim team for swimmers ages 6-18 who reside on the Eastern Shore, with members from various counties including Talbot, Queen Anne’s, Caroline, and Dorchester. Its mission is “to develop the character, self-confidence, and physical fitness of our local community’s youth through the life-long sport of swimming.” The program emphasizes the improvement of strokes and endurance and having fun. TSC is a member of the Delmarva Swim Association, a league comprised of 24 teams.
TSC offers high-quality coaching and technique instruction. “The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to experienced athlete,” said TSC Board President Vance Morris. “We are excited about the upcoming season and looking forward to seeing both returning and new families at the pool!”
