How to Join the Southgate Penguins Swim Team
~ 2008 Season ~
The Southgate Penguins 2008 Roster is full!
We will not be accepting any more applications for this season. For more
information about the East Bay Swim League please see our EBSL web page

The Southgate Penguins Swim Team was formed in 1965 to give our swimmers an opportunity to participate in competitive swimming with other youths in the East Bay. This year marks the 43rd anniversary of the team, and we still swim for the same reasons. Competition is one of those, but even more important are the swimming and sportsmanship skills our children learn as a part of this team. Our team was founded on these principles, and we emphasize these same values today. Our executive committee is planning a season that will encourage our children to develop and hone their skills, beat their own best times, practice good sportsmanship and teamwork, and most of all, HAVE FUN!!!
