Community swim & programs

High school programs

Team up with Garland ISD.

Students at all seven Garland ISD high schools have the opportunity to get an excellent aquatics education at the natatorium.

Participating on a team

The natatorium is the main practice pool used by all seven Garland ISD high schools swimming and diving teams. Students in the district can participate in aquatics programs regardless of the school they attend.

Garland ISD students can join the varsity swim team, junior varsity swim team, or diving team. Practice is part of a student’s class schedule as a double-blocked class, though additional time outside of school may be required.

Joining the team

Tryouts are held at the beginning of each school year. Coaches assess and place students in classes based on their results. A student’s schedule will be adjusted according to their assigned group. 

Team expectations

Swimming and diving students are expected to:

  • Attend practice daily
  • Have a double block schedule (A and B-day)
  • Participate in all meets/competitions
  • Stay in good academic and behavioral standing
  • Be positive and encourage their teammates
