The Stony Plain Sharks Swim Club has been proudly serving the youth of Stony Plain and area since 1977. A small group of parents wanted to see their children involved in summer competitive swimming and through their time and efforts, the Stony Plain Sharks has grown to become one of the largest summer swim clubs in Alberta. A number of our swimmers have set (and still hold!) provincial summer swim records. A few of our swimmers have moved on to swim at the college and university levels and some of our swimmers continue to be involved in aquatics through life-guarding, teaching, and coaching.
The Stony Plain Sharks is a Summer Swim Club with a history of developing excellent competitive swimmers at the local, regional and provincial levels. Swimmers train at the Stony Plain Outdoor pool and enjoy fresh air while learning to swim faster by improving their swimming strokes, turns, and dives. Swimmers develop confidence in their abilities, develop healthy lifelong skills and habits, and make new friends while having fun under the summer sun!
