Swim Team

The Greater Charlotte Swim League recently put out their COVID-19 protocols for the 2021 swim season. Due to the complexity of navigating pool capacity limits, in-person versus virtual meets, and pool safety, Fairmeadows has elected to sit out this season. Our hope is to rejoin next season. Until then we have put together a Swim Camp similar to last year.

We are thrilled to welcome Julie Crenshaw to lead the swim camp. Julie has been teaching swim lessons for over 25 years starting at the Simmons YMCA and moving to the Mecklenburg County Aquatic Center for the majority of her instructing years. Julie will also be offering a stroke clinic and private swim lessons throughout the 2021 season.

Assisting Coach Julie will be Lina Herran. Lina has helped us in previous years and is one of our Fairmeadows life guards.
