SHARON JOHNSTON SWIM TEAM
Sharon Johnston Swim Team (SJST), a member of the Rocket City Swim League (RCSL), is commonly called a “summer” league, as our swim season is from the end of May until the middle of July when the city meet is held. There are three divisions (A, B and C) in the RCSL. The “A” division comprises the highest scoring teams, then “B” and finally “C.” The points scored at the City Meet places each team in the appropriate division for the next year.
SJST is called the Tornadoes. We chose this name when a tornado destroyed the Sharon Johnston pool in 1997.
2023 Signups for the Sharon Johnston Swim Team, New Market, Alabama.
Please mark your calendars accordingly. These Signups are set for Saturday, May 6th at the Sharon Johnston Park Office. At Signups, you will receive our summer practice schedule, summer swim meet schedule, and more info. You may come anytime between 10 am and 2 pm.
At the Signups, we will have swimmer signups & registration, volunteer signups, and SJST team tee-shirt purchases. Also, First Place Athletics will be on hand where you may purchase SJST team swim suits, goggles, and practice suits for a reduced price. Please bring your checkbooks.
Again, SJST is in the B-League swimming against the top competition in the City. I am looking forward to a great summer swim season and looking forward to seeing everyone.
TEAM SURVIVAL GUIDE
We have put together a Survival Guide that contains some very important information for our swimmers and their families. This Survival Guide is contained in the following pages but can be also be printed. This Survival Guide has everything you ever wanted to know about how to swim, swimming for a swim team, swim meets and being a parent volunteer. Please take the time to review this Survival Guide, even if you are a seasoned swimmer or parent and browse the following web pages. You may learn something you didn’t know!
Sharon Johnston Swim Team is a nonprofit organization. The people that make this organization a success, do so as volunteers or with minimal salary (as in the case of the coaches). Throughout the course of the year, the team finds that they may need certain items that can’t be afforded due to lack of budgeting. We have put together a wish list of items that are needed. If any of our parents would like to donate any of these items, please contact the board President prior to donating items.
