The Stroudsburg Area School District has created an Open Swim program for 8-12 grades that runs in the fall of every school year and an Intramural Swim Team for 5-8 grades that runs in the spring. Both programs have been created to increase the enjoyment of swimming in the Stroudsburg Area.

      During the two different programs, emphasis is placed on the teaching of all four competitive swim strokes. The goals for the programs are for the student to learn teamwork, self-confidence, what hard work is and gain an enjoyment for a sport that can be done for a lifetime.

     Any student interested in joining swimming should contact coach Ellis for more information.
