UC Club Swim Team

The UC Club Swim Team is a student group dedicated to achieving a competitive level of swimming while having fun doing so with some fellow Bearcats. We were formed in the Spring of 2012 and had a very successful first year with second place finishes at invitationals with over ten teams.

Practices run January 12 - April 30 and are held on Mondays and Wednesdays 7:30 - 9 p.m. and Thursdays 8 - 9 p.m. in the CRC lap pool.  Practices are led by our officers and we typically swim 2,000 to 3,000 yards. Attendance is NOT mandatory or tracked, but is highly encouraged!  There will be no practice on January 19 or March 16-19.


Fees are used to cover practices, meet expenses, and a team shirt. It is $60 per semester or $110 for both Fall and Spring semesters (we take the Summer off). For those who do not want to compete in meets but want to attend practices, fees are $40. Likewise, there is also a $40 "meet only" option for those that cannot attend our practices but would still like to compete as part of the UC Club Swim Team.

Our meets are a lot more exciting than your typical swim meet (we even swim 25's and 100 IM!). We typically swim in one travel meet plus two or three closer meets per semester. We boast a second place finish, out of more than ten teams, at the Miami University invitational and a third place finish at the Ohio State University invitational this past Fall. Other meet destinations have included the Indiana University Invitational, Northwestern Invitational, and Xavier Dual Meets.  The season culminates in the Spring with National Championships in Atlanta, Georgia
