TBAY-Central: The best of Florida swimming in the heart of Tampa!

TBAY Central Branch at Tampa Prep is the practice home of many of Tampa ’s elite swimmers, including national-level competitors and Florida state champions. The team is geared to year-round swimmers dedicated to achieving their potential and becoming the best swimmers they can be.

The team travels to local, regional and national competitions, as well as an annual training trip in the summer. Practices are also offered for aspiring age-group swimmers, who are ready to move beyond swim lessons and summer leagues to serious competition.

The newest practice groups include the Red Group for High School swimmers interested in staying in shape in the off season, and the Baby Bucs, or learn-to-swim program for aspiring competitors age 10 and under.

The team is a close one, as coaches, swimmers and parents share a love and commitment to the sport of swimming. We sponsor regular special events to provide a social atmosphere outside the pool environment. For more information on joining TBAY Central, click here
