The Riversharks are a competitive swim team that will practice at the PennWest-Clarion Natatorium (Tippin) from Monday-Thursday from 6-8 pm. The swim season runs from the beginning of October through mid-February. The Clarion County YMCA participates in the CENKEY Swim League. Meets are held Saturdays December-February at pools in the league. Swimmers are grouped by level.  Swimmers refine strokes and work on endurance.  Informational parent meeting is September 15th at 5:30 pm at the Clarion County YMCA in the MPR. New swimmers welcome! Practices will begin in October.

Cost – $255 plus $84 membership fee

Practice Times

The head coach will determine suitable practice groups for your child.  Younger ages typically practice less than older, more experienced swimmers. Practice start times are staggered according to different levels, starting at 6 or 7 pm.  Swimmers are moved as they learn.
