Our team consists of first time swimmers and experienced year-round swimmers. Participation provides an environment for learning and an opportunity to work/play together while improving through teamwork, sportsmanship, discipline, and fun. We compete in 8 swim meets on Wednesday nights and Saturday mornings, as well as optional competitions as part of the Suburban Swim League. The season runs from the Tuesday following Memorial Day until about the middle of July each year. We accept children aged 4-18 on May 31 for each year. You must be a pool member to join the swim team. *** Requirement***- Your child must be able to Swim one full length of the pool unassisted.
$50 each swimmer
There are 8 meets and they are held on Wednesday evenings at 6:00pm and Saturday mornings at 9:00am. Swimmers are expected to be ready for warm-up 45 minutes before the meet starts.
On days of Wednesday home swim meets, the pool will remain open after 5:00pm only to swim team members and families, spectators, and volunteers in order to allow for set-up and for the swim meet itself. In addition, the pool may open later than normal on days with Saturday home swim meets. All members are invited to watch, cheer, and help with the swim meet in any capacity.
