Manchester to begin swim program

Manchester University plans to hire a coach to start a swim club next fall, and hopes to begin NCAA Division III competition in both men's and women's swimming in 2015-16, the university announced today.

The team will practice and compete at Strauss Peabody Aquatic and Fitness Center in North Manchester, the university said in a statement.

A sizable gift from an anonymous donor is making the program possible, the statement said.

It said the university would share the pool with community programs and swimmers, the Manchester High School swim team and an organization of young swimmers, and will pay a lease.
