swim meet-2 girls

Our summer swim team program is recreational yet competitive. Current Club members between the ages of 5 to 18 are eligible, and the youngest participants must be able to swim the length of the training pool with side breathing and without stopping. We are one of five teams who compete in the Valley Aquatic League.

 

 

 

swim-meet-boyThe League’s purpose is:

  • to encourage healthy attitudes toward competition
  • to promote the sport of swimming
  • to improve personal swimming skills
  • to provide as much competitive challenge in a summer program as possible
  • to have fun!

 

INFORMATION

A registration packet will be available at the Front Desk in March.  Only completed applications (full payment, Parent Job Registration & Waiver) will be accepted.

SIGN-UPS

Sign-ups are divided into two priority groups. All sign ups within each group are first come, first serve. We hope everyone who wishes to return will be able to do so. If the roster (130 swimmers) fills before you can register your child, your child will be placed on the alternates list. Alternates will train with the team and will attend all social functions, but will have second priority on meet sign-ups. The last day to drop from the team (with coach’s approval) and receive a full refund is two weeks after first day of practice.

PRACTICE REQUIREMENTS

swim-team-swimmerSwimmers are strongly encouraged to attend at least three practices per week for 10 and under age groups, and four practices per week for 11 and older age groups, as well as represent the team at all meets. Eligibility for our league Championship Meet requires that a swimmer swim in at least two (2) league meets during the current season.

 

PRE-SEASON MANDATORY PARENT MEETING

The numerous details of Swim Team will be discussed at the Mandatory Parent Meeting held the week prior to start of practice at 5:00 pm. Parents are required to work at all meets, including the Championship Meet. Parents will also be asked to donate an item, i.e. baked goods, to the team’s snack bar at home meets and the Championship Meet. Money earned from the snack-bar sales is used to purchase needed equipment for the team.

We also offer a Pre-Season Swim Team program.  It is a great opportunity for all swimmers to get a head start and improve their stroke technique before Summer Swim Team begins.  Please click here for information on this program.
