Summer is time for swimming teams
The Mansfield Parks and Recreation Department offers year-round swimming programs for kids and adults.
The Mansfield Marlins Youth Swim Club is an instructional team teaching swimming skills and stroke technique. Other fundamentals taught include flip turns and starts.
The Adult Masters Swimming team is geared toward individuals with some competitive swimming experience and basic proficiency in front and back crawl and breast stroke. Regular swimmers and those preparing for triathlons can benefit from this group in addition to appealing to U.S. Masters-sanctioned swim meets.
