Glenbrooke is a member of the Capitol Area Association of Private Swim Clubs (CAAPSC) league. During June and July each year, our swim and dive teams competes against other private swim clubs in the area. The meets are officiated by certified league representatives. Swim team is open to members age 8 to 18. Prior swim team experience is not required. Our swim coaches and their assistants welcome all levels of swimming ability.
This is a great opportunity to introduce children to competitive swimming. Swimmers who are new to swim team will improve their strokes and learn how to swim competitively.
Garrett Wlochowski Garrett began swimming at Glenbrooke at a young age and has gone on to become a USA certified swim coach. He is currently attending college at UMBC and is a three-time silver medal winner at the America East Championships.

Practice: Pre-season practice begins in late-June in the early evening. This practice is not mandatory but it is a good opportunity for swimmers who have not been practicing in the winter to work on their endurance and strokes before the season begins. It is open to all team members. Regular season practice begins after schools let out and is held Monday through Friday mornings.
Team Suits & Caps: Orders for swim/dive team suits and caps are taken during a parent meeting held at the club during pre-season practice. Suits ordered after this date will incur shipping charges. This meeting is also a good opportunity to ask questions about the program. Order forms will be available at the meeting.
Swim Meets: Glenbrooke competes in swim meets, during the summer against local clubs in Glastonbury, Wethersfield and South Windsor, with meets held both at home and away. The season ends with a championship event and banquet.
