Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the swim team and why would I want my child to participate?
A: It’s fun, great exercise and it builds confidence. It’s a great way for your child to meet other kids in the neighborhood and for you to meet other parents.
Q: What strokes do the swimmers use in competition?
A: Freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.
Q: What to wear?
A: Swimmers should come to the assessment ready to swim. This includes:
:: Proper swim practice attire. Baggy shorts or ’beach wear’ are not acceptable.
:: Goggles are not mandatory, but highly recommended and not provided by the coaching staff.
:: Swim Cap – for swimmers with hair that may impact their swimming
Q: I see that there are different age groups for the swimmers. How does that work?
A: The age groups in competition are 8 & under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15-18 and Senior (usually 15 and older). Every other year your child will have a year when they “age up” and are the youngest in their division and a year when they are the oldest in their age group.
Groups will be determined by number of team participants at the start of the 2023 season
Q: What is an assessment and what should I expect?
A: An assessment is an evaluation done by our coaching staff which will help us place the swimmer in the group that will match their age and ability level. Each swimmer is different and may or may not be ready, swim team is not a “learn to swim” program. The assessment will last about 10 minutes. Swimmers should be ready to swim with a swimsuit, goggles, and a towel.
