The swim team at Clinton Hills is a great way for kids to be active, develop skills, and make friends. All club members, ages 6 to 18 are eligible to participate. The fun of summer club swimming can lead to year-round involvement in the sport, but for most, it’s just a positive, healthy way to spend the summer.
