Established in summer 2005 by parents and swimmers of the Pocono Woodland Lakes Property Owners Association, the Pirates participate in the 10-member Pocono Mountain Summer Swim League.
Over the years, the Pirates program has involved as many as 75 swimmers per summer and has brought home many championship trophies.
A highlight of an outstanding 10th season in 2015 included the PWLPOA community hosting in August a Swim Championship that the Pirates won! Gold Key captured 2nd place, 739 won 3rd, Silver Lake placed 4th and Fawn Lake came in 5th.
The Pirates continue to depend on parent volunteers and certified coaches to organize and run this positive program that benefits our children and enhances the community.
The goal of the Pirates swim team is for all swimmers to have fun, improve both their skills and their times, and develop good sportsmanship, team spirit, and positive self-images.
New swimmers are welcomed and encouraged to join in on the fun in. Children must be 5-18 years old and able to swim unassisted in the deep end of the community pool. They must also reside in the Woodlands or have a relative that is a resident in good standing.
