Please be aware of the policies regarding swim lessons and swim team:

  • Please make every attempt to arrive to each lesson/practice on time. Showing up late can create a delay in the class/practice for those who were on time.

  • It is NOT the instructor’s/coach’s responsibility to convince your child to swim or to care for crying children who do not want to participate. The instructor/coach will make an attempt to get every child to participate but will not spend time “negotiating” with a swimmer.

  • NO parents are permitted to watch lessons/practices from the docks. This included during trials for swim team.

  • Children participating on the swim team in the 8 & under and 10 & under age groups must take swim lessons. If a child’s skills are superior, then the swim coach may decide to administer a swim test to determine if the requirement should be waived. The swim test will only be given on the first day at the beginning of session 1 for children enrolled in both Session 1 and 2, or the first day of session 2 for enrollment in only Session 2. This will be done on an individual basis at the sole discretion of the swim coach and/or Youth Program Chair.


Swim Team Only:

  • Swimmers MUST be able to swim 50 yards, unassisted, to become a member of the swim team.

  • Please notify the coaching staff in advance, if possible, if you will be missing a practice or a meet by calling to club or speaking directly to a coach. We understand that sometimes emergencies pop up and, in that case, please still make every effort to call the club.

  • Female swimmers must either wear a 1-piece bathing suit or a 2-piece racing suit to practice each day. Swimmers wearing 2-piece (non-racing) suits will not be permitted to participate.

  • Parents are asked to sign up as a volunteer for at least one of our meets. ​
