Hang out with the cool kids this summer at Club Palisades. Five one-week sessions available June 24 to July 26, though the first three weeks are filling quickly. The focus of Club Palisades is on developing friendships and having fun while participating in sports, swimming, crafts and games at Palisades Pool. Club Palisades is open to members’ children age 5 (completed kindergarten) to age 12 years. All Clubbers must be able to swim the length of the pool. Non-members may attend as the guest of a member.
Club Palisades will operate for five weeks. Sessions are:

  • June 24-June 28
  • July 1-5 (no Club July 4)
  • July 8-12
  • July 15-19
  • July 22-26

Clubbers can attend for one week or up to five weeks. Standard Club Palisades hours are 10 am-3pm, which compliments the morning swimming and tennis programs. Clubbers are not required to participate in either swimming or tennis to attend Club Palisades. Early drop-off options (starting at 8:30 am) are available.

Preference for volunteer opportunities is given to former clubbers. See further details here:

Come to the pool Sunday, May 19 from 3-5 pm for our annual Welcome Back to Palisades event. Fun for all with cookie decorating and the ever popular Photo Booth returns. Feel free to bring a favorite object (i.e. team medal/trophy, photo, stuffed animal, etc.) to take fun photos with. Come meet our Board Members and representatives from various Palisades activities (swim team, dive team, tennis, Club Palisades, Synchronized Swimming) to answer your questions and help you with sign ups. If you are a new family, we encourage you to come and receive a welcome gift from us. We will also be selling Palisades car magnets for $5, cash or Venmo.

Calling all Palisades families! Are you ready to dive into a world of pool fun and shimmering excitement? Look no further than Sparkly Synchro Swimmers (SSS)—a club where the water sparkles, the routines dazzle, and the smiles are as bright as the summer sun.

About Us

  • Kid-Run and Directed: SSS is proudly led by two young swimmers: Bella Bohinc and Laurel Haeni. These dynamic duo captains know how to make a splash both in and out of the water!
  • Inclusivity and Warm Welcomes: Our main goal is to create a club that everyone feels welcome. Whether you’re a seasoned swimmer or just dipping your toes in the pool, SSS is the place to be. We believe in the magic of synchronized swimming and the power of friendship.
  • Seasoned Success: With two successful seasons under our wings, SSS is riding the wave of achievement. But guess what? We’re not stopping there! The water beckons, and we’re ready to make an even bigger splash this year.

Join the Fun!

  • Age Range: If you’re between 5 and 18 years old, you’re in the sweet spot! Dive into our aquatic adventures and let the water carry you away.
  • Skills Required: 
    • Swim Across the Diving Well: No floaties needed! Our swimmers should be able to swim confidently across the diving well without assistance.
    • Tread Water for 1 Minute: Keep those legs kicking! Treading water is a must for synchro, so you are able to stay afloat!

Sparkly Synchro Swimmers will practice Tuesdays & Thursdays at 6:15 pm, June 11 to August 29 with a showcase Labor Day weekend. Registration is just $50. Details on how to register coming soon.

Swim Team registration is open! Please register here now! 

We are no longer able to refund or pro-rate fees, and sibling discounts are available only at the time of the first swimmer’s registration. Registration will close on Wednesday, June 5th.
Not sure you want to commit? Come to the first week of practice to test it out, May 27-31. Please first email us at: to let us know you’d like to do this!

Not sure if your child is ready for Swim Team? Sign up here for a swim assessment May 19th. One of the coaches will watch your child swim and tell you if pre-team is a better fit.

Caps! Each family will receive two personalized caps. Please reach out to us if you have more than two swimmers! (

Merchandise! Support our swimmers with awesome Palisades gear. Make it easier for new friends to connect your swimmer with you by wearing a personalized Palisades t-shirt! (Most people put their swimmer’s last name on the shirts.)

We can’t wait to see you all on deck!

The Palisades Dive Team is a great way to learn or improve your diving and build confidence and friendships in an atmosphere of friendly competition. Diving teaches kids body control, acrobatic skills, mental focus and competitiveness. It’s also a lot of fun!  All Palisades members (both bonded and temp members) ages 5-18 whose family paid summer dues for 2024 and can swim in the deep well to the ladder are welcome. For the summer dive season, a diver’s age for competition is the diver’s age as of June 1.

We participate in the Montgomery County Dive League (MCDL), a fun, summer recreation and developmental league. This summer, our summer dive regular season will run May 25 – July 19, followed by Divisionals (July 21) and All-stars competitions (July 23/25). We’ll kick off the season with Memorial Day weekend practices 10-11 a.m. Sat/Sun/Mon. Afternoon practices start the Tuesday after Memorial Day. Our practices will be held at the same time as swim practices, 4:15 – 6:15 p.m. M-F, but we flip age groups so that kids can join both swim team and dive team if interested. Once MCPS is out for the summer, we add morning practices starting on June 19, M-F 9:30 – 10:30 a.m.
