The Afton Village Swim Team, the Alligators, is kicking off a new season! This is our eighth year in the prestigious Memorial-Spring Branch Swim League and our sixth year with our head coach, Kari Pokrzywa (kari.pokrzywa@gmail.com), who is also a SBISD elementary school teacher. Our team competes with other Spring Branch/Memorial teams and our newest team in the Heights area. Our pool is conveniently located at 1111 Afton, Houston, TX 77055 (in the neighborhood right behind IKEA).

If you are considering another team or another league, note that our swim meets are held on weekday evenings when it has cooled down. Many other leagues have their meets on Saturdays, all day in the hot sun. Many of our parents have expressed how much they love the fact that our meets are held on weekday evenings which leaves the weekends free for other things. We hope you will join us!
