Good afternoon! We hope everyone is doing well!

We are looking to do a spring season if we get enough swimmers to register. If we get enough registered swimmers by Tuesday March 30th, we will proceed with the season (an email will be sent confirming the start of the season). If you are interested please register online, payment will be due at your first practice. Please visit our website at: https://martinsferry.swimtopia.com to register. The first swimmer to register will receive a free silicone cap!

Practices will be assisted by former Martins Ferry Aquatic Club/Martins Ferry High School standouts Jamie Fogle and Rylee Reis. Both Jamie and Rylee are OVAC and district medalists, as well as school record holders.
