Club van transportation is available for away meets, with room for about 28 swimmers.

Team New England (March-April)
The Waltham Tiger Sharks take part in the National Boys and Girls Club Swim Championships held every year in St. Petersburg, Florida. We, along with several other local Boys and Girls Clubs compete under a single banner known as Team New England. There are requirements to attend the National Swim Meet, so please inquire with the coaching staff if you have any questions.
Summer Swim Team (July-August)
The Tiger Shark summer Swim Team practices during the week to keep kids in shape during the off season. We compete in 2-3 meets during the summer, held in the evening on a week day.
