• Girls Swim Team Calendar
  • 6th - 8th Grade Girls Swim   

    Head Coach, Josh Stephens, jstephens6132@hotmail.com

    Asst Coach, Heather Guise hguise@birmingham.k12.mi.us

    The Red team is for more experienced and faster swimmers, regardless of grade. The White team is for girls newer to the sport and looking to improve technique. Both teams will compete, work hard, and have fun! Swimmers must be able to swim two lengths unassisted to participate on either team. 

    More key information:

    • Your daughter MUST have a physical on file with the office dated on or after April 15, 2022 before she can get in the pool. Please contact Sara Gargasoulas at sgargasoulas2@birmingham.k12.mi.us with questions.
    • We realize many swimmers swim competitively with other clubs and ask that your daughter participates in at least one practice with Derby per week to swim in an upcoming meet.
    • We are looking for a few parent liaisons for each team. There is an immediate need to purchase team suits, caps and additional swag. Please contact Heather Guise at hguise@birmingham.k12.mi.us if you are interested in being a parent liaison. Thank you!
    • We will have two practices after school. The early team practice runs from 6:45 - 7:45 am. The later team practice runs from 4:15 - 5:15 pm. To be fair, the teams will be switching off weekly on the times (see the calendar).



    Registration is now closed.

    Note regarding registration fee refunds: Students who are cut from a team during tryouts will receive a full refund of their registration fee. Any student who decides not to participate during the first week of practice AND requests a refund through the office (tryout week included) will also receive a full refund. Any student who removes themselves or is removed from a team after the first week of practice for any reason will not be eligible for any refund.
