The Cleveland Heights Swim Cadets will perform their annual swim show at the Heights High pool on Feb. 28, March 1 and March 2, at 7:30 p.m. This year’s theme is Swim Cadets Go Old School.

The Swim Cadets have been a Heights High team for more than 60 years, and is the Cleveland area’s oldest synchronized swimming club. Many participants are second- or third-generation team members. Swim Cadets senior member Jenna Goldthwait said, "Being a part of the oldest group at Heights, we find ourselves meeting Swim Cadet alumnae and immediately having a connection—from the songs we've sung dating back to the 1940s, to reminiscing about the excitement of the show. Once the music begins and those lights flash, all the fundraising, time and practice will pay off."

The students select members, raise operating funds, develop routines and produce the show each year. Tickets are $7, and attendees should enter through the doors off the back parking lot of the school.

Team members hold various fundraisers throughout the year. If you would like to support the team, send a check payable to Cleveland Heights Swim Cadets to 3020 Coleridge Road, Cleveland Heights, Ohio 44118. For more information, call Temma Collins at 216-695-8289.
