The Cobias is a competitive swim team, intended for those who, as a minimum, know the basic swimming strokes. While it is not a venue for learning to swim, it is one for improving technique, speed, endurance and competition. The Cobias is a Georgia Recreation and Parks Association summer league team. During the season there are typically five to six regular meets and a district and state meet. All swimmers regardless of skill level are invited to participate at the meets.
Swim team participation involves a major commitment from the swimmer as well as the parents. Practice and/or meet 4-5 times per week.
The season will begin mid May and end with the state swim meet (for qualifiers) in July.
Swimmers must be a Bartow County resident to compete in the District/State Swim Meets with the Cartersville Cobias.
