We’re from Shades Cliff, Couldn’t Be Prouder!

Head Coach: Mary Claire Shingleton

Team President:  Jud Morrison – (205) 335-9222

Shades Cliff Swim Team began in 1964 with the founding of Shades Cliff Pool in Bluff Park.

Our mission is to deliver excellent competitive swimming instruction and foster a love for the sport of swimming. SCST is a mid-sized team in the Jefferson Shelby Swim League.

Each summer, in June and July, the Shades Cliff Sharks swim six meets against other Birmingham area swim clubs. The summer season wraps up with the Senior County Championships where kids who meet the time standards set forth by the league compete against each other to determine who is the county champ.

Registration is limited to the minor children of members of Shades Cliff Pool. Registration opens on March 1st and continues through May 10th (new members must be registered and paid by June 1, however a tshirt and bag cannot be guaranteed). If you are a new member, please contact Jud Morrison at 335-9222 to discuss registration.

The registration process includes an online SCST registration form, a JSSC online waiver, and payment of team fees.  Your team fees cover your swimmer’s activation, coaches’ salaries, competition swim cap, team tshirt, team backpack, all regular season meets, and JSSC registration fee. If your swimmer is not registered by May 10th (June 1st for new members) with fees paid they cannot participate.
