  WHO ARE THE FIGHTING FISH?

The Groveport Fighting Fish are a competitive summer swim team, which consists of swimmers from the ages of 5 to 18 years of age.  For safety reasons swimmers MUST be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted.  The team competes in six regular season swim meets in the months of June and July including a season ending Championships.  The Fighting Fish are members of the Tri-County Aquatic League, which consists of eleven other swim teams from the Bexley, Newark, Lancaster, Pickerington, Canal Winchester, Pataskala and Southeastern Columbus areas.  The league has been developed and maintained through a commitment of teamwork and sportsmanship since the early 1970's.  Each year, over 1000 swimmers compete across the league.

The Fighting Fish pride themselves on a history of great swimmers, outstanding facilities, and an overall dedication to self-improvement.  The program provides a structured practice schedule, a dedicated parents organization, and a successful coaching staff.
