The Somerset Hills Swim Club (SHSC) swim team program is committed to developing each swimmer to his or her greatest potential through positive experiences at team practices, swim meets, and team social events. Swimmers practice and work together in an atmosphere that builds self-confidence, promotes positive team spirit, teach and improves stroke performance and builds endurance. Joining a summer swim team is a great way to learn about the sport, make lifelong memories, and HAVE FUN!
The SHSC swim team is part of the New Jersey Swimming and Diving Conference. The Conference is divided into three leagues: A, B, and C. Thanks to the past several years of great swimming, we are in the A League.
