SWIM TEAM

The Seven Hills swim team has won the city championships for the last 17 consecutive years, and joining the team requires dedication, commitment and teamwork. The coaching staff is committed to helping young swimmers develop lifelong fitness skills and fulfill their potential for competitive swimming in the Nashville Swim League. Realizing this potential means that swimmers must commit to attending several workouts per week where they will gain fitness and at least two dual meets where they will gain experience competing.
