Mack Manta Rays Competitive Swim Team

An inclusive team for swimmers ages 5-17. Must be able to swim one length of the pool, front crawl. The Mack Swim Team will participate in the Southern Michigan Swim League (SMSL) which offers competition in dual meets along with a championship meet each session.

​This year's swim team structure is based on CDC guidelines, the continued presence of covid-19 and the lack of vaccine access for our young swimmers. To offer your swimmer the safest swimming experience possible, we will be offering our 10 and under swimmers will practice two days a week at a ratio of 1 coach to 4 swimmers. That means your swimmer will be getting a lot of feedback and attention from each practice. For our 11 and older swimmers, we will be offering practice 3 days a week at a ratio of 1 coach to 6 swimmers. Days and times are listed below, and swimmers will have to commit to a fixed practice schedule for this session.
