HEAT is an age group competitive swim team. Our team competitive team encompass a variety of swimming abilities for ages 5 through 22+. Our Swim team now offers a 3 season opportunity for our swimmers; a fall USA season, a winter season and summer season. The fall season is designed for our experienced swimmers to compete in a USA season leading into our winter age group/USA season. In the winter season we practice 3 - 5 times a week depending on the level, and attend meets on Saturdays. The summer season also include age group/USA season offering. The teams practice 3-5 times a week depending on the level and attend weekday and weekend meets. Swimmers are able to participate in at least 3 dual meets and a championship meet in the winter and summer season as part of the registration cost. Invitationals and USA Swimming are options for all swimmers, and provide added opportunities for competition at an additional cost.
*Swimmers MUST be registered in a HEAT Level prior to the first practice. If you have participated in HEAT before you should have received a HEAT level assignment for the upcoming season. If you have not participated in HEAT before you will need to attend the evaluation session prior to the start of the season. Staff will be on hand to take attendance, and any swimmer who is not registered will have to sit out of the practice.
*Registration for HEAT and USA covers the cost for a team latex cap. If you wish to upgrade to a silicone cap, please turn in the latex one you receive and pay the difference in cost.

USA Swimming will begin on Monday, September 25th for those who choose to register for our Fall Season. USA swimmers will practice weekdays and possibly some saturdays. The schedule will be determined for the remainder of the fall season depending on pool availability and will have at least four practices a week. Initial practice times will be 5-7 during the weekdays and 8-10 on Saturday mornings. USA Swimming challenges swimmers to develop strong fundamentals in training as well as meets. This opportunity allows additional practice times for swimmers to participate in more meets, and allows higher goal setting. The HEAT USA program encourages swimmers to find their niche in the swimming world. Meet locations can range from 10 min away, to over 2.5 hours away.
