The Chardon Recreation Dept. offers a competitive summer swim team. The Chardon Sharks, has approximately 120 swimmers, and competes in the Suburban Swim League (SSL). The SSL is comprised of the following teams: Eastlake, Euclid, Highland Hts., Mentor, Pinegate, South Euclid/Lyndhurst, Wickliffe, Willoughby and Willowick.
Meets are held every Saturday; starting in the middle of June and concluding with the Championship Meet the last weekend of July. All meets begin at 8:00 a.m. and conclude by noon.
***This summer will be a little different than the past. For our home meets, we will be swimming our competitor VIRTUALLY which means we swim our events at our home pool, while the other team swims at their own pool and then the times will be compared. All of our away meets will be in person meets. However, Champs this yer (7/24/21 & 7/25/21) will be VIRTUAL. It is important to note that the SSL requires swimmers to be in at least 3 of the 5 meets to swim at Championships.
The parent meeting for the Sharks will be held: Thursday, May 27th, 2021 at 6:00 p.m. at the Chardon Pool. We will have a better idea of how many swimmers will be on the team and will be able to discuss meets and practice times for your child. We recommend new parents attend this meeting.
The first day of practice is Friday, June 11th at 7am. There will be NO Friday afternoon practices. The first full week of practice will start Monday, June 14th. Please check the practice link for more information.
