Murfreesboro Speedboats Special Olympics Swim Team


The Murfreesboro Speedboats is a Special Olympics swim team devoted to helping each swimmer reach their athletic potential.

They offer swim instruction for children and adults with special needs of all ages based on 3 levels: Speedboats (swim team-swimmers can swim the length of the pool unassisted), Tugboats (swimmers under the age of 8 and/or can swim unassisted but not the full length unassisted) and Rowboats (swimmers who do not know how to swim).

Ongoing Service Opportunities:

Practice schedule:

Speedboats Swim Team-Mondays/Thursdays (November 2-December 29) 6:30-7:30pm

Tugboats Swim Instruction-Tuesdays (November 1-December 27) 6:30-7:30


Donation needs:

Swim Goggles

Volunteers do not have to have extensive knowledge of competitive swimming in order to volunteer, although that is always a plus.

They hope to gain more volunteers in order to begin offering swim lessons for their Rowboats level as soon as possible.

Please contact Marida Balch at and go online to fill out all of the necessary paperwork/complete online trainings.
