Makos Swim Team

The Palm Beach Gardens Makos swim team is a recreational swim team that is a part of the South Florida Recreational Swim League. The team practices four days a week and competes in swim meets at least once a month. We have 5 different teams to meet most swimming abilities along with three different practice options. The recreational aspect of the team brings fun, competitiveness and friendships amongst the swimmers. Please see our practice information below for more details or contact Katie Waskiewicz at 561-630-1126 for more information.

Effective August 2020, the Makos will no longer have practice sessions with start and end dates, and instead will be utilizing a monthly installment billing system. Once a swimmer has registered for the team, they will automatically be billed at the beginning of each month for Makos. This enrollment will be continuous unless a request is submitted to recinfo@pbgfl.com to unenroll from the team and end payments. Practices will be offered on a continuous basis, and any months with skip dates such as holidays will be prorated prior to swimmers being billed.
