  • SWIM TEAM REGISTRATION


  • SWIM LESSONS

    All swim lessons are taught by the swim team coaches. We will offer group lessons for beginners and intermediate swimmers (please see description below.)

    The Beginner & Intermediate Group lessons can be signed up for via the Sign Up Genius link

    Private Lessons are recommended for swimmers on the team that would like stroke refinement, assistance with dives, turns, etc., you can schedule a private lesson with the coach of your choosing.
    Please email Coach Shawn for scheduling private lessons or contact the coach you would like to do the lesson with directly.

    

    Beginner Group - has never taken a lesson before; needs help with immersing head under water; needs help with floating; needs help being able to feel comfortable in the water without mom/dad; need to learn to kick and pull arms

    

    Intermediate Group - has the basics of breathing and kicking down, but needs further instruction in order to refine freestyle/backstroke motion; build confidence in furthering swim skills (perhaps to join the team the next season)

    

    All lesson payments are to be paid directly to the coach giving the lesson by cash or check.

    

    Beginner Group Lessons are 30 minutes in duration and cost $10 per lesson.

    

    Intermediate Group Lessons are 45 minutes in duration and cost $10 per lesson

    Please join us on Thursday, May 17th between 5:30 pm and 7:30 pm (Open House) for cake and ice cream social and an opportunity to meet the swim team coaches. You will be able to ask questions about the upcoming season. It is also a good opportunity to sign up for swim lessons. We will also have a swim suit fitting in the clubhouse at the same time. You can purchase your black swim suit from any vendor you like, we simply provide this as a courtesy.


  • 6 & UNDER JUMPSTART/11-12 TURN CLINIC

    We will have a special practice for our 6 & Under swimmers on Saturday, June 2nd, from 8:00 am until 9:00 am. We will also have a Turn Clinic on the same morning for the 11-12 age group from 9:00 am-10:00 am.


  • TIME TRIALS AND TEAM BREAKFAST

    This "meet" allows all of us to practice and to get times for all swimmers before the first official swim meet. Please plan to attend. The lineups for the first meet will be based on the times from the mock meet. Time Trials and the swim team breakfast will be on Saturday, June 9th. Plan to arrive at 7:30 am to get swimmer numbers and grab a bite to eat. We will need some volunteer timers. If you you have never timed at a meet before, this is a prefect opportunity to gain some experience for this volunteer role.
