The Fallston Fins is a summer swim team sponsored by the Fallston Club. The Club has sponsored a team almost since its inception in 1969. The Fins are members of the Harford Swim League and compete against other swim teams in Harford County. Meets are held on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings and even though there is friendly competition between the clubs, the main emphases are on sportsmanship, stroke development, personal achievement and most importantly, having fun.

In addition to fun in the pool, the Fins host an active social calendar including Pasta Night, Ice Cream Social, Pizza and Water Polo night and a family awards banquet held at the end of the season under the Main Pavilion. Also, team members can sign-up to participate in the HSL Championship Meet held at the end of the season.

What are the requirements to join the Fins? If you are a member of the club, at least 5 years old by May 31st and can swim the length of the pool you can join the Fallston Fins. Every child will get a chance to compete in the meets and compete against themselves to try to drop a little time off their personal best. The coaches will work with all the age groups to improve each swimmer’s existing strokes and teach additional strokes each swimmer has yet to master. It is expected that all swimmers attend at least three meets during the swim season.

An additional requirement to join the Fins is participation from all swimmers’ parents. Families are required to volunteer to work two meets for each swimmer on the team. Volunteer assignments include concessions, timer, runner and stroke & turn officials, etc. This summer, for each swimmer on the team, you will be expected to sign up for two volunteer positions during the regular season. Ask most swim team parents and they will tell you “working the deck” gets you closer to the action and makes the meet go faster. It takes a huge number of volunteers to run the meet and every parent volunteer makes an important contribution to the running of the meet. Families will no longer need to contribute to concessions, it is part of the swim team fee.

Again, any club member between the ages of 5 and 18 who can swim the length of the pool can join the Fallston Fins. Come join us!
