Sunrise Swim & Dive Teams
Sunrise Community Club is a charter member of the Jefferson Community Club Association (JCCA). Our swim team, the STINGRAYS, has provided a great entry for hundreds of swimmers into the arena of competitive swimming. Many children who started swimming at Sunrise go on to compete for their middle & high schools, while others have advanced to year-round club swim through USA SWIMMING.
In 2016, Thomas Vanderbrook set two new state records and is now swimming at Indiana University, one of the premiere college swim programs. At Sunrise, every swimmer is important; every child swims as many events as he or she is able. While on some teams, a child may swim in one event due to a large number of swimmers for a limited amount of races, every child on Sunrise's team knows that he or he will get multiple chances to help the team out!
Sunrise Community Club participates in the JCCA Summer Dive League. Meets are held both at Sunrise and at rival clubs on Monday evenings at 6:30, while practices are held during the week in the dive pool at Sunrise. Sunrise Dive was the 2017 JCCA Dive Champion!
Few opportunities exist for young people to learn diving as a sport in the local area. Over the years, dive team members have been recruited to join AAU dive teams that travel around the state and country. Sunrise is pleased to offer this opportunity to our members!
Meets are held on Tuesday evenings at 6:30, both at Sunrise's pool and at our opponents' pools. Practices are held three days a week; the schedule will be announced in May. Swim Team dues are $30 per child.
