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.
