The swim team is a program organized to provide an opportunity for members children to improve their own swimming performance by having daily work out sessions, periodic swim meets with other clubs and awarding ribbons to recognize accomplishments. The season will begin early June and run through the end of July. PLEASE watch the pool bulletin boards and website: colonywestswimclub.com for additional postings and dates concerning the swim team.
Note: Swim team is designed to improve your child’s swimming skills. It is not designed to teach your child to swim. If your child is unable to swim the length of the pool without assistance (25 meters), you should consider swim lessons first before joining the swim team.
Even if your child does not participate in the actual meets, but does attend practice, a swim team fee will be assessed.
Please keep in mind that your fee for swim team covers: swim team coaches compensation, conference entry fee, meets ribbons for every swimmer, a portion of the end-of-the-season party, 35-40 days of practice and 10 dual meets. We do not charge meet fees for the individuals participating in the various swim meets. All in all, the swim team fee covers a great deal for our young swimmers!
Orientation: Date to be determined. Please watch the pool bulletin boards and the swim team website for information and postings as the season moves closer.
