Welcome to the Charleston Swim Team
Home of the Water Rats
Charleston Swim Team competes annually in the Tri-County Swimming League. Summer Swim teams at Charleston and in the township in Cherry Hill have a unique and exciting 50 year history. Children from neighborhoods all over the tri-county area compete every Saturday during the summer learning more than not only how to swim but how to be a good team and friend. What other sport can a 7 year old be on the same team as a 17 year old and their contribution are equally important to team success!
Swim Team practices starts every year the Tuesday after Memorial Day every day after school. Once the Cherry Hill School district school years ends our team has morning and afternoon practices based on age.
The dual meet season is a fast paced 6 week season that starts in late June and runs through July. Meets are held on Saturday mornings at Charleston and other local swim clubs.
Our team is professionally coached and is led by Head Coach Matt Acciani. Coach Acciani is a teacher at Cherokee High School where he also serves as head swim coach.
So, who can participate on the swim team?
Any child whose family is a member of the Charleston Swim Club.
