About the Team

dsc_0317The Boardman High School Swimming and Diving team was founded in 1985 to give swimmers and dsc_0340divers in the Boardman School District the opportunity to participate at the highest levels that sport has to offer.  The program has achieved national, state, and local recognition for excellence in swimming and academic achievement.  Team Records, All-Time Top 25 lists, Freshman Records, and other achievements are kept up to date in the History section of this website.

The team practices at Youngstown State University’s Beeghly Natatorium after school during the week and on Saturday mornings.  We do dry-land conditioning before school several mornings per week at the fitness center.  All in-season practices are mandatory.  The season runs from early November through the end of February.  The current season meet schedule available on our Schedule/Results page, which will be updated as the season goes along with results and recaps of each meet.  A detailed practice schedule will also be available on our Calendar page or through subscribing to our calendar on your computer or mobile device.

Our team is financially supported by both the Boardman Board of Education and The Boardman High School Swim Boosters.  For more information on the Boardman High School Swim Boosters, including how to contribute to the program, please click here.
