Froggies Swim and Dive Team

The North Hills Froggies Swim and Dive Team competes in the Cincinnati Private Pool Club Swim League. The Froggies are always a force to be reckoned with. Our swimmers have a wonderful time, build lasting friendships, and join a decades-long tradition when they sign up for the team.

2020 Swim and Dive Coaches

Adrienne Storer, Dive Coach
Amy Shuck, Parent Coordinator

Being a Froggie is a special opportunity. Our goal as a team is to provide a safe, fun, and rewarding experience for all our swimmers and divers. Any child is welcome to join the team — we have Froggies of all ages and skill levels. Our coaches are great with working with the kids and bringing out the best in every Froggie.

Hard work in practice, exciting competition at meets, and team spirit in abundance make the Froggies the best team in Cincinnati (in our completely biased opinion).

Many North Hills swimmers have gone on to amazing athletic achievements at the high school and collegiate levels. Lots of them will tell you the Froggies were the best team they ever swam for.

Once a Froggie, always a Froggie.

Skyline Nights: It is tradition to go to Skyline after away meets. We will let you know in each weekly update which Skyline we will be headed to after the meet. There are only two away meets this year.
After home meets, it is tradition to grill up a bunch of hot dogs and kids are able to grab a hot dog (and usually anything left from the bake sale!) once the meet is over.

Spiritwear: We will be ordering from Queen City Spirit once again. The link to order will be emailed out as soon as I hear back from the company. There will be a very quick turnaround to get the first batch by the first meet. After that date, you can still order, but you will have to either drive out there and pick it up yourself or pay to have it shipped.
