Swim and Dive Team

Maple Manor’s Swimming & Diving team has offered fun summer training and competition to member families since 1962. Girls and boys ages 5-18 compete as one team in the Colonial Swim League in dual meets vs. six area swim club teams. Maple Manor has been a force in this age-group summer league, with the most recent league championship streak stretching from 1999 through 2018. In addition to training and meets, the team has a lot of fun social activities for the kids throughout the season.

Athletes can start at a young age as part of the “pre-team” with most continuing to participate through high school, and many going on in their swim & dive careers to compete in high school plus at the regional, state, collegiate, national and international level. Maple Manor has one Olympian alumnus (Rob Cragg, diving; Montreal 1976), with several swim & dive athletes/alumni competing at the US Olympic Trials (three in 2020!) and representing the United States (and Maple Manor) in international competition.
