Swim Team Practice Change of Venue

Just want to make you aware of a slight change in swim team plans. Our practice location for the first two weeks has changed from the main JCC campus to a different property also operated by the JCC. Construction at the main campus is the reason for the change.

For May 15-26 we will be at the Merfish Teen Center (9000 S Rice Ave). FOR DIRECTIONS CLICK HERE  This is several blocks closer to Southside. It is a wonderful facility, actually better than what we had previously been assigned. It is a 7 lane, 25-meter pool. It will be just us. Southside will provide lifeguards. Restrooms available. Tennis, basketball and open field available to families attending. Photo of pool attached.

Samantha and I toured this site with the JCC Aquatics Director this past week. Samantha, Sydney and I will be coordinating the daily opening and closing of this facility.

Let me know if you have any questions.  Please contact me CLICK HERE

Thank you!

FYI – Samantha and I made it from Southside to the JCC main campus in 12 minutes at 4 pm on a Thursday. We made it from Merfish Center to Southside in 9 minutes at 5:11 pm.

2017 Swim Team

The Southside All-Stars Swim Team is ready to kick off another awesome season!  Led by Sydney Marvin, a veteran All-Stars team member and coach, swimmers will gain tons of experience and advance their skills through weekly practices and regular swim meets.  This year, we’ll be holding practices at the Jewish Community Center (JCC), where our kids will swim alongside our league teammates.  Our Southside coaches will be running the practices and they’ll feel much like they do at our own pool.  The season will start with a fun pizza party on May 14th where swimmers can get to know their coaches and see their swimming friends.  And, of course, we’ll end with our annual swim banquet, where we can celebrate our swimmers’ many accomplishments!  Be sure to be on the lookout for these amazing Southside swimmers at our gorgeous new pool later this summer!

Please contact Swim Team Coordinator Samantha Smith at with any questions.
