The Menlo Aquatics offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels. It is the goal of the Menlo Aquatics to offer age specific training for all of our athletes geared towards challenging each individual and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. For those athletes that do not meet the requirements are welcome to join our well know Swim School. Please follow this link for more information on our swim school.

Placement for Levels 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5:
Every swimmer must have a mandatory evaluation with a Menlo Aquatics coach to ensure that the swimmer is placed into the correct level that corresponds to their abilities and level criteria. Please note, swimmers need to demonstrate an ability to swim 1 length of freestyle, backstroke, and breaststroke and 12.5 yards of butterfly.
Menlo Aquatics understands that many swimmers may meet our requirements, however, our coaching staff is dedicated to teaching sound techniques, skills, and drills for a group of swimmers. Our swim school can assist athletes in a much more intimate setting to help them excel and move to the next level better.
Athletes that do not meet the requirements are invited to join our swim school, please click here for more information.
Private Lessons: Swimmers that make the team, but are asked to continue with lessons also have an option to receive lessons straight from a Menlo Aquatics Coach. Let your evaluator know you are interested in taking private lessons to help speed up stroke mechanics and skills rather than receive swim lessons. Private lessons are also available to all full time Menlo Aquatics Swimmers.
Burgess Pool (Menlo Aquatics Swim Team): 6:30pm Wednesdays
*For athletes not meeting the Menlo Aquatics requirements, Swim School evaluations are as follows:
Burgess Pool (Swim School):
Monday- Friday: 12 noon or 6:00pm
Belle Haven (Swim School):Evaluations are at the start of each session during the first class. From here, students will be placed with other swimmers with like abilities for the remainder of the session.
Move-ups for Menlo Aquatics, or moving to the next group, are under Coaches discretion. Move-ups are also done on a quarterly basis and athletes are moved into the next age group upon aging up.
