Motivated. Dedicated. Passionate. The Cuyahoga Falls Tigersharks, proudly bring 110% each time they step into the water. From beginners to experts, the team is perfect for any age or skill level.
A YMCA sanctioned team, the Tigersharks also participate as a USA Swimming team. USA Invitational Meets feature thousands of participants and allow swimmers to experience competition beyond northeast Ohio. Anyone who is able to swim 2 lengths of the pool is welcome to register for these meets.
The team’s season begins at the end of September and culminates with Nationals in April. The Tigersharks can practice 6 days a week at either Riverfront YMCA or the University of Akron. Practices are based on skill level not age. The meets are divided into divisions based on age:
- 8 and under
- 9 & 10
- 11 & 12
- 13 & 14
- 15 – 18
The Tigersharks generally participate in two types of meets. Dual meets where the coach decides the events, and invitational meets where swimmers can choose their events. These are a great way to expand skills and build confidence. (There are roughly two dual meets per month.)
