Make Waves with the Berkeley Breakers

We had an absolute blast last summer at our state-of-the-art Olympic-sized outdoor pool, and we can't wait for the 2023 season to make an even bigger splash. Our Berkeley Breakers Swim Team competes in the North Jersey Summer Swim League - Division 3, swimming against fierce and friendly competition from Mountainside, Morris Township, Verona, and Maplewood.

From beginners to seasoned swimmers, we welcome everyone ages 6-17 to join our team, regardless of ability or prior experience. Our dedicated coaches are committed to fostering an environment of personal excellence, honesty, and commitment, all while helping each swimmer achieve their highest potential.
