Our recreational swim team serves swimmers ages 6-17 to continue building their skills at an advanced level. Swimmers will continue refining their strokes, as well as expand on their overall knowledge of swimming. Workouts include dryland exercises, with a variety of different drills that vary in focus every practice. During the summer, the Mako Sharks are given the opportunity to participate in the Summer Splash League along with Covington Aquatic Center and Federal Way Community Center, where our swimmers will have the chance to showcase their skills against other competitors.

If you’re a swimmer who would like to continue growing your swimming skills, have fun, and build relationships, then this is the club for you!
