Motivated. Dedicated. Passionate. The Cuyahoga Falls Tigersharks, proudly bring 110% each time they step into the water. From beginners to experts, the team is perfect for any age or skill level.

A YMCA sanctioned team, the Tigersharks also participate as a USA Swimming team. USA Invitational Meets feature thousands of participants and allow swimmers to experience competition beyond northeast Ohio. Anyone who is able to swim 2 lengths of the pool is welcome to register for these meets.

The team’s season begins at the end of September and culminates with Nationals in April. The Tigersharks can practice 6 days a week at either Riverfront YMCA or the University of Akron. Practices are based on skill level not age.  The meets are divided into divisions based on age:

  • 8 and under
  • 9 & 10
  • 11 & 12
  • 13 & 14
  • 15 – 18

The Tigersharks generally participate in two types of meets. Dual meets where the coach decides the events, and invitational meets where swimmers can choose their events. These are a great way to expand skills and build confidence. (There are roughly two dual meets per month.)
