Swim Team: Abington Alligators!

Registration for 2020 is Open!

As you know, this season will have its challenges and will be much different from seasons past.  Simply stated, we begin with a note of gratefulness for the rare opportunity to do this for our kids.  We respect each of the various perspective on COVID-19.  Should you and your family not choose to participate this season, you will be missed and welcomed back with enthusiasm next summer.  Our aim this season is to be flexible, safe, active, competitive, compliant and “Alligator community” minded.  Should you have any questions, please contact the team directly at abingtonalligators@yahoo.com
