Welcome to the 2021 season!

At this time, the Greater Forsyth Swim League (GFSL) is planning on a summer swim season in 2021.

We know you have many questions: How will meets be held? Will spectators be allowed on deck?  Most of our decisions will be driven by the size of our team as well as Covid-19 guidelines outlined by the CDC and local and state authorities.  Plans are still being finalized by the league and coaches. 

It is important to us that our swimmers have the opportunity to build team camaraderie, strengthen their skills in the water and interact with their friends and peers while maintaining a safe environment. As more information becomes available, we will be sure to share it with you. 


2021 Jonestown Sharks Swim Team

The swim team is open to all families of the Jonestown Swim and Tennis Club. Anyone 18 years of age or younger who can swim the length of the pool (25 meters) can join. Any swimmer who aged out in the 2020 season will be eligible to compete this year. New swimmers to our team will need to bring a photocopy of their birth certificate. If you have submitted a birth certificate in the past, you do not need to bring it again this year.

By popular demand, our 19 and over team will be returning this year!  This is your chance to improve your cardiovascular fitness and get some laps in with a little extra instruction from our coaches.  While our older swimmers are ineligible to participate in swim meets due to age restrictions, there will be opportunities to compete. We are planning some intra-squad activities in addition to City Meet which is open to all ages.

The season begins the first week the pool is open and generally ends the 3rd week of July.  Swim team dues for each swimmer in 2021, regardless of age, will be $65. 

Email us with any questions you have about the swim team.
