Newport Hills Swim Team has a long-standing tradition of introducing new and young swimmers to the incredible sport of competitive swimming. For over 50 years Newport Hills Sharks has offered children their first team practices where they develop all four competitive strokes, dives off the starting blocks and race for time. What we are most proud of is the lifelong swimmers we develop. Many have gone on to year-round swimming, high school seasons and even collegiate success. We have a consistent and experienced coaching staff that specializes in swimmer development. These coaches are available for private lessons and individualized coaching.
Whether you are a first-time competitive swimmer or an experienced one we have a program and place for you.
