Pool-side with the Falcons!
The Florence Swim Team consists of Florence Middle School, Florence Freshman Center, and Florence High School. Athletes from grades 7th through 12th participate on the team together to create the varsity swim team. Our Season beings in August and ends in December with tryout’s typically in May.
Each year since the team’s beginning, swimmer’s have participated in Sectionals and State swim meet’s. We have had several top 16 finishes and some top 8 finishes at state. Our swimmers have received several scholarship offers and one of our swimmers signed with Birmingham Southern and competed on their swim team.
The swim team is a member of the Huntsville Swim League. We swim High Schools in Cullman, Huntsville, Madison, Decatur, Athens’s, and other cities in North Alabama. The 2018-2019 swim season has been one of our best. All of our swimmer’s made time cuts to participate in Sectionals and two swimmer’s advanced to state and competed in 4 event’s total and both placed top 16 in their events.
Our practices consist of dry-land, distance swims, sprints, drill’s, and base work. Swimmers typically swim 3,000-4,000 yards at practice and they involve high intensity workouts. We practice at the YMCA of the Shoals four days a week.
