Varsity Swimming and Diving
The swimming and diving team started in 1989-1990 winter season. It has grown significantly over the years and celebrated a 25th Anniversary in 2015. There has been an enormous explosion of records, championships and individual recognition in the last 3 years. We graduated the most successful boys team in 2018 having placed as a team in the top 3 at conference championships all 4 years they attended TA. Over the years, we have also had about a dozen or so NISCA (National Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association) Academic All Americans - qualification is a 3.75 GPA over 7 semesters while earning a school varsity letter in swimming or diving.
The TA swimming and diving team typically practices at the Northern York County YMCA in the evenings.
Swimming practices begin at the end of November. One hallmark of swimming - there are no "tryouts". If a student participates in practice (drylands and in the water) and meets team policies, he/she will swim in each meet of the regular season and conference championships. Every participant has a season-long opportunity to participate in each meet and to qualify for State Championships. We have team members with us who join for social reasons, some for exercise reasons, some for being part of a team/meet new friends, some are the elite athletes in the State in our sport, and some are a combination of one or more of these reasons. Everyone is welcome and supported in practice and competition.
