Every morning from the end of the school year until the middle of July, the Timarron Bent Creek Pool is alive with young swimmers from our Timarron Neighborhoods. Over 220 of these young swimmers, ages 5 to 16, learn the basics of competitive swimming and get the chance to represent the Timarron Tigersharks Swim Team in competition at the Carroll Aquatics Center each summer.
For the past 13 years, Sonia Leonard, a Southlake resident and full time real estate agent, has sponsored and directed the Timarron Tiger Sharks growing it from 70 to over 220 swimmers. Ms. Leonard has now turned over the reigns of the Program to Head Coach Kevin Murphy, who intends to continue the tradition of serving the Timarron Tigershark families with the best Summer Swim Team experience in Southlake.
Coach Kevin Murphy, Head Coach for the Southlake Carroll High School Swim Team, is also the Head Coach for the Timarron Tiger Sharks and staffs his coaching team with college-age assistant coaches from among his former HS All-American and All-State Carroll Dragon High School swim team.
In conjunction with learn-to-swim lessons at the Bent Creek Pool, hundreds of youngsters from Timarron and Southlake have had the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of improving their swimming and learning to work and compete in this great sport, America’s #1 Olympic Sport. Some of our Tiger Shark kids say “it is the most fun they have ever had at the pool!” and a number of former Timarron Tigershark swimmers have gone on to be state-ranked age group swimmers, Varsity and JV Carroll Dragon swimmers, HS All-American Swimmers and NCAA College Swimmers.
The Tigersharks compete as part of the Tarrant County Summer Swim League, comprised of three summer-league teams from Southlake. The League is sponsored and directed by the North Texas Nadadores, a USA Swim Team, operating out of the Carroll Aquatics Center. The Timarron Tigersharks have been crowned “Champions” of the League 7 of the past 10 years.
