EBSL is a league that started over 30 years ago to help develop the love of swimming in the East Bay. The purpose of the East Bay Swim League, (hereafter EBSL), is to provide young swimmers with an opportunity for summer recreational swimming competition, in an atmosphere that fosters sportsmanship, team spirit, cooperation, and respect for the other swimmers and the league. It was started in the Hayward area, but has spread to Southern Fremont, Newark, San Leandro, and Castro Valley. Newark Bluefins were the eleventh team added to the league in the Spring of 1997 and the Columbia Crocodiles were added in the Spring of 1998. Each year EBSL hosts its championship meet where all twelve teams in the league compete to determine the overall league champion.
