South Siskiyou Swim Team

Welcome to South Siskiyou Swim Team, formerly known as Mt Shasta and Weed Swim clubs. We are part of Sierra Nevada Swimming with governing requirements set forth by USA Swimming. We are based out of Southern Siskiyou County, utilizing the pools in Weed and Dunsmuir when possible. Our swimmers are comprised of residents all over South Sisikyou county from Castella to Montague.

We average between 60 and 80 athletes per season. These athletes represent a combination of beginners up to our competitive swimmers, who also serve as junior coaches and lifeguards. Our practices are separated as follows: ; Age Groups (8-11 years old); and (12-18 years old).

We are a recreational team with the option to compete.  Although our athletes are not required to participate in swim meets, they are always encouraged to do so. The only requirement is they must be able to swim the length of the pool crawl stroke unassisted. 

Traditionally, swim practices run from early to mid-June through the end of July,  Monday through Thursday for varying lengths of time based on ability.  8-11 year olds will practice from 5:00 to 6:00 Monday through Thursday and 12 -18 year olds will practice from 6:00-7:30 Monday and Wednesday and from 6:00-7:00 Tuesday and Thursday.
