Q: What if my child is not a strong swimmer? This is a developmental league so all levels of swimmers are welcome. Our only requirement is that the child can make it by him/herself across the length of the pool. Our coaches will develop basic skills during the season, but can not teach swim lessons at practice. Swim lessons are available at other hours by our coaches and lifeguards.
Q: What are the age categories? Summer swim league is open to kids ages 5-18. Swimmers will practice in age groups, and swimmers compete in age divisions: 6 & Under, 7-8, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15 & Up.
Q: Does my child have to be at every practice? Goodness, no. Every practice is available to all swimmers but certainly not required. There's no penalty for missing practice, but they are valuable in improving your swimmer's stroke and times.
Q: Do I need special equipment? You'll need a good set of goggles or two (since they seem to disappear around the pool), a swim cap we'll provide, and you are welcome to order a team suit pictured right ---> . but any black or red suit will be fine.
Q: What if I miss a meet because I'm on vacation? Well, have a great time! Look, this is summer...and we're not the pool police. Come when you can! The more committed you are, the more you improve, but we understand families need vacations, so go and practice your butterfly in the ocean!
We're the Fun Team in this league :)
