Attention: Swim Team Canceled

Rocky Mountain Swim League (organization that Franklin Fish are affiliated with) is canceling and/or suspending all current meet schedules in 2020 Summer Swim League due to COVID-19 concerns.  Due to the current limitations and the uncertainty that any aspects of the league will run, South Suburban will not be running our team this summer.

South Suburban Parks and Recreation is monitoring the State/Local guidelines in regards to social distancing and opening of our pools.  We will be exploring potential alternatives for Swim Team activities and will update you on any offerings that might be available.  Please stay up-to-date with all South Suburban facilities and program information by checking
