The Hartland Swim & Dive Team is a recreational team made up of children who live in the Hartland neighborhood in Lexington, Kentucky and are members in good standing with the Hartland Homeowners Association. The Hartland Swim & Dive Team is a member of the Central Kentucky Swim & Dive Conference (CKSDC), made up of 10 swim and dive teams in the central Kentucky area.
Participation in the swim team should not be confused with beginning swim lessons. Swim team coaches and other pool staff are available to provide beginning swim lessons for younger children. While children as young as 4 years of age may be a member of the team, a child must be “water ready” and willing to swim. The head swim coach will decide if a young child has the necessary skills to participate in team practices, meets and activities. The Hartland swim coaches are known for their competitive swimming abilities and coaching for swimmers on technique, conditioning and overall performance.
Participation in the dive team may include children and teenagers who are interested in developing their diving talents. While children as young as 4 years of age may be a member of the dive team, a child must be “water ready”, willing to swim and jump off the diving board into deep water. The head diving coach will decide if a young child has the necessary skills to participate in team practices, meets and activities. In general, a diver must be able to qualify as a member of the dive team and have sufficient body control required to complete the four elementary required dives.

Hi! My name is Kaleb Brannock. I have been swimming in the CKSDC since I was five years old. I swam competitively year round for the same amount of time. I finished out my swimming career with the Lexington Dolphins and I have been a coach there since August 2020. I loved this sport as a swimmer and I’ve come to love it even more as a coach. CKSDC swimming gave me some of the best memories of my life and I can’t wait to make more as a head swim coach at Hartland!
Kaleb is available for Swim Lesson, please contact him at 859-948-4327 or email@example.com
My name is Wyatt Jennings, I am 20 years old and, I am currently in the middle of my second semester of my second year in college at the University of Kentucky. I was a swimmer for Hartland from the summer of 2010, to the summer of 2020, and enjoyed the sport so much I decided to swim throughout the whole year from 2010 to 2020. And I still swim today too, I have joined the Club Swim team at UK to continue enjoying swimming. Building a positive, and friendly atmosphere is a number one priority for me, because I have always valued the enjoyment of my time swimming over the actual swimming itself. After coaching for Hartland as an assistant coach for two years, I am excited to step into a new role as a Co-Head Coach for the team! I can’t wait to see everyone this summer for an awesome season!
