The Kingsport Aquatic Center has their own junior summer league swim team – the Junior Viperfish Swim Club! Practices are fun, and swim meets are optional. Most meets will be held right here in your home pool! Before the season begins, we will host parent meetings for more information. Bring your swimmers, as we will have a swim assessment for them, too.

The Junior Viperfish Swim League starts practicing on May 24, 2021. There are no tryouts—the team welcomes all swimmers ages 6 and up of any ability.

No competitive experience is required for joining the Jr. Viperfish team. The East Tennessee Summer Swim League program is designed to be an introduction for swimmers to the competitive swimming realm, in a fun atmosphere. It is not designed to teach kids to swim, but improve their basic swimming skills. Swim lessons are available throughout the year at the KAC to build foundation swimming skills.

The cost is $85 per swimmer for Kingsport Aquatic Center or YMCA members and $95 per swimmer for nonmembers. There is a discount for siblings wanting to join.
