Swim with the sharks


The TigerSharks Swim Team at the Dwares Jewish Community Center is in full swing as kids start moving from other sports to swim season.

We hope to have 30 kids participating this year with many new faces. Last year we had 22. Assistant coaches are Kaitlyn Waring, a high school back-stroker on the team, a certified lifeguard and a stroke instructor in our TigerSharks Swim School; Sam Beauvais, a JCC lifeguard and the daughter of Jim Beauvais, the coach of North Providence’s Barracudas. Also helping with drills and instruction is our Hall of Famer Ian Muir.  

Our first FUN meet was the Annual  Relay Carnival, the  Halloween sc-RIMA-thon, on Oct. 27. The next dual meet is on Sunday, Nov. 3 at FoxPoint. Contact me for more information at dimmel@jewishallianceri.org
