About Us

The Montpelier Marlins swim team exists to promote fun, fitness, safety, and community for swimmers of all abilities. Our team is managed by a paid coaching staff with oversight from a committee of dedicated volunteers and parents. 

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible to participate in our program, children and youth must meet the requirements below.

  1. Age Requirement

Our program is open to swimmers ages 5-18. All swimmers must have basic water safety skills. Younger swimmers should also be potty trained and demonstrate the ability to comply with instructions from the coaching staff.

  1. Neighborhood Status Requirement

As a community pool, our priority is to serve the Montpelier neighborhood; however, we offer several programs to accommodate the friends and families of our residents. In order to join the team, swimmers must:

  • Be a resident of the Montpelier community;
  • Be the holder of an Extended Family pass with the Montpelier Community Association; or
  • Be an adopted swimmer sponsored by a family who resides in the Montpelier Community through our “Adopt-A-Swimmer program.”

 

Adopt-A-Swimmer Program

 

If you are an adopted swimmer, please also be sure to review the program policy in the “Attachments” section below. In addition to completing the registration process online, you will need to submit a signed copy of the policy to montpeliermarlins@gmail.com.
