About the Channel Cats

Our club is a USA Swimming year round competitive swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for all ages and abilities. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to national competitor.

All of our coaches, as members of the American Swim Coaches Association, have access to the most comprehensive training and certification program for youth coaches of any sport in the United States. They provide assurances that the time children spend in swimming will be quality time.

The Tri-City Channel Cats, a non profit club, is run by its elected Board of Directors which meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month. All members are welcome at each meeting and encouraged to be involved in team activities and fundraisers.

We are constantly growing and training young swimmers to maintain a well rounded competitive swim team. Please feel free to ask any of the coaches any question you may have.

We hold tryouts twice per year.  Our next tryout will be held December 13th, at 6:00pm, at the Tri City Court Club.
