Your child will have a ball at Big Swim Big Kick!
The Big Swim Big Kick is a free organized, swim meet and soccer festival for children ages 6 to 10 years old that takes place every year in the spring. Swimmers get to dive off the blocks into our Olympic-sized pool and race to the finish while outdoor athletes compete in a variety of soccer activities. Each participant receives a medal, t-shirt, and other goodies.
