To ensure everyone's safety, we require that your child can swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke unassisted and without any flotation device. If you're unsure of your child's readiness, join our Swim Team Evaluations on May 28th at 5:30 pm. Evaluations are mandatory before the season starts. Children who met the requirements and swam with us last summer are exempted from evaluations.
To ensure smooth meet operations, please make every effort to attend if your child is scheduled to swim. Changes in plans after submitting meet sheets must be communicated to coaches immediately. Swimmers arriving after warm-up start time may be scratched from their events.
During meets, swimmers are expected to sit with our team in designated areas, behave well, and stay until the end in case of any last-minute substitutions. Please help us maintain the cleanliness of the pool facility by disposing of any trash and avoiding bringing glass onto the deck.
Practices will be held at the outdoor Athletic Club pool M-Thurs, weather permitting:
> 8:00am – 9:15am ages 11 and older
> 9:15am – 10:00am ages 10 and under
In cases of inclement weather, practices will be moved inside to the Kids Club pool at 8615 N. University
For swim practice, swimmers should bring a swimsuit, quality goggles, and a towel. Long hair must be up in a swim cap, which is available for purchase for $5 during practice. It's also recommended to bring a water bottle and something warm to wear afterwards. Please enter through the athletic club front desk and use caution when driving in the busy parking lot.
In case of chilly outdoor or pool temperature or inclement weather, practice will be held indoors at the Kids Club pool in the building next door (8615 N. University). Parents should park at the Kids Club and accompany their children to the pool locker room, as unaccompanied children are not allowed in the building per DCFS rules. We'll notify you of any indoor practice by 6 am each day. Thank you for your cooperation.
We greatly appreciate your participation in our home meets, as they require significant parent involvement. To ensure the success of these events, we kindly ask that at least one family member of each swimmer volunteers for at least one home meet, if possible.
For any communication with the coaching staff, we ask that you avoid doing so during practice times to allow our coaches to focus solely on the swimmers. You may leave a note in the coaches' mailbox, located at the athletic club front desk.
To prevent disruptions during practice and maintain the swimmers' focus, we kindly request that parents refrain from coaching their child from the sidelines. Our coaches are trained professionals and are best equipped to guide the swimmers during practice. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
Should you choose to order a team suit, information is enclosed. It is not mandatory to have a team suit to participate.
To ensure swimmers receive important updates, each swimmer will have their own mailbox. Please encourage your child to check their mailbox regularly for updates from the coaches, as well as for any swim team ribbons they may receive. Thank you.
