St. Anthony's Swim Team is a charter member of the Brandywine Swim League. We participate in dual swim meets with five other teams including Applecross Country Club, Brandywine Coatesville YMCA, Kennett & Jennersville Area YMCA, and West Chester Area YMCA. Our season ends with a two day championship meet at the end of July.
St. Anthony's (more commonly known as STA) is a place where summer fun and hard work come together. Our main goal is to give kids a fun activity to do during their time off from school. We like to have a good time, but also teach them swimming technique, sportsmanship, respect, and discipline.
Our team is made up of swimmers aged 5-18. We encourage everyone to try out for the team, but your swimmer must be able to swim the length of the pool without assistance. Keep in mind this is a TEAM, not swim lessons.
If you are new and have younger swimmers, you can bring your children to practice and see how they like it, with no obligation.

Please remember that only swimmers are allowed on the pool deck. Parents are asked to kindly sit in the grass area by the snack bar.
Swimmers should wear a one-piece bathing suit and have goggles for practice. Anyone with long hair should also bring a swim cap with them. We will assign swimmers to their lanes at the first practice. Please be sure to bring water for your swimmers to have during practice!
