Trails Swim Team : Background-image

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Algonquin Pool remained closed for the 2020 season. This means of course that we were unable to hold our swim season this summer. As much as we tried to prepare for this possibility, we were heartbroken not to be gathering at the pool with you this summer and to celebrate our 50th anniversary. Now, we look forward to an epic summer for 2021!

Trails is a recreational summer team. Our goal is to stimulate an interest in competitive swimming and provide a fun social environment for year-round swimmers to maintain fitness without the demands and intensity of a more aggressive winter league. Trails is about: Teamwork, Respect, Attitude, Integrity, Leadership and of course Swimming. It's a short 8-week season so while we do practice technique and competition, it's not the focus of our team. We hope that each swimmer will develop a lifetime love for swimming, basic skills in all four competitive strokes, and new friendships with great memories.

Trails is part of the NCISC, along with Cary, DeKalb, Geneva, Huntley, McGuire, Oswego, Rock River Valley and Woodstock. New for 2021: Rochelle Park District!

The Trails Swim Team practices week day mornings and has home meets at the Lions Armstrong Memorial Pool in Algonquin. Our team welcomes swimmers of all abilities aged 5 to 18 to join in the fun. Although swimming is considered an individual sport, our community is structured with an emphasis on the team and support for one another. Trails provides a positive atmosphere for physical and emotional development for its members within a competitive swim program.

Meets often feel like picnics, with tents and food and summer fun for the entire family. Other highlights include Fun Fridays with a Build Your Own Sundae Day or Poolside Breakfast, the awards banquet and a Magic Waters celebration at the end of the season.

The Trails Swim Team is a tax-exempt, not-for-profit organization run by a volunteer Board of Directors. All members are welcome and encouraged to be involved in team activities.
