The City of Charleston's Southern Marlins Racing Team (SMRT) formed in 1984 as the City of Charleston Swim Team (CCST). In 2004 CCST merged with the Summerville Marlins Racing Team and adopted the Southern Marlins Racing Team name.
SMRT is known throughout the area as a first-class competitive swimming program. We offer a year-round guided age group program for children aged six and up, and we can accommodate all levels of swimmers from novices to those ready for competition at the local, state, zone and national levels. When a child becomes a member of SMRT, he or she learns the value of hard work, sportsmanship and teamwork.
SMRT's coaching staff works with every swimmer to improve his or her skills and endurance as a competitive athlete. Our program helps to provide physical, emotional, and intellectual skills that will last a lifetime.
Our Mission: The City of Charleston Southern Marlins Racing Team is a competitive swim team that is dedicated to the development of exceptional citizens and exceptional athletes.
Our Vision: We are committed to achieving excellence and advancing the sport of swimming through our dedication to:
· Good Sportsmanship
· Developmentally Appropriate Programs
· Team Development
· A Sense of Community
