Community swim teams extend reach

Kelsey Rogers, 7, a Fox Den competitor, during a medley relay leg. Kelly and Greg Maine are community swim team parents from Village Green subdivision, among scores of parents on hand at Sugarwood subdivision pool Thursday evening, June 16, for a Gators versus Stingrays showdown.

Naturally, they cheered for Sugarwood.

The Maines have four children swimming for Sugarwood this season: Noah, 14, Gabrielle, 12, Madeline, 9, and Isaac, 7.

With 10 children total, “Last year we had seven swimmers,” Kelly said. “Noah likes the breaststroke; Madeline and Gabrielle like the butterfly. Isaac just likes to swim.

“The siblings love to swim with Sugarwood because it’s a great environment, very encouraging, and they just love fellowshipping with their friends. They started when they were [age] five.”
