About

 

East Moline Swim Club is located at the East Moline Municipal Pool, at United Township High School in East Moline, IL. We serve children ages 5 & up. Swimmers are welcome to attend as many or as few practices, while balancing other commitments, but the more practices you attend, the faster you will see results! Our focus is first and formost on technique. Ages are used as a guide. Skill level is also a factor when determining group placement. We have four levels of swimming:

Guppies- This level is held in the diving well, so swimmers are strictly focused on technique for a shorter amount of distance. Swimmers should be able to swim on their own before entering this group. If they cannot swim on their own, we have an excellent lessons program available! Swim meets are highly encouraged, especially our home meets held at the East Moline Pool. Swim meets are voluntary and held on the weekends. Swimmers can sign up for as few or as many as they wish. 

Practice Times: 5:00-5:45pm Monday, Tuesday, Thursday

Minnows group- This group is for our new swimmers. We will focus on learning the four strokes and swimming ettiquite. Swim meets are voluntary, but encouraged. 

Practice Times: 5:00-6:00 Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday (No Wednesdays)

Bronze group-  Swimmers in this group know all four of the strokes and work to further perfect technique. We also work on the technique of starts and turns, while adding some yardage to prepare swimmers for the Silver group. Swimmers are expected to attend at least 3 practices per week. One swim meet per season is required for this group. 

Practice Times: 5:00-6:30pm on Monday-Friday

Silver Group/Gold Group (ages 11 and up)- This group is for our more advanced swimmers. Swimmers should have a good understanding of technique of all strokes, turns, starts, and fundamentals. The main focus for this group is training for swim meets. Swimmers are expected to attend at least 3-4 practices per week. At least two meets per season are required for this group. Swimmers in this group are required to come to practice with an empty mesh equipment bag.
