QUESTION & ANSWER

Q:  Can we try-out the team before committing to registration, fees,etc. ?

A:  Yes, we recommend all swimmers attend the one week free prior to joining the team

A:  We do not have practice requirements for most of our programs although we do suggest 3-4 sessions per week for most of our age-group swimmers. 

                   

Q:  Do we have to compete in swim meets?

A:  No, we don’t require competition, but suggest it!  We find that kids learn to want to compete on their own accord.

 

Q:  Are team suits and caps required?

A:  Although, we suggest most girls should wear caps to keep their hair out of their face while swimming we do not have requirements, we do have a team suit and you will be able to order them directly from the website, but not required to have.

 

Q:  How much is this going to cost?

A:  We have a yearly registration fee and a USA Swimming fee that is currently $180.  Each training group has separate fee’s you may find those fee’s in the registration portal.  All swim meets have entry fee’s which can range from $15-$55 per meet.

 

Q:  How do we know when our swimmers are progressing?

A:  Obviously if your child is competing in swim meets you will see decreases in their times.  You may ask for feed-back from their coach either through email or finding them on the pool deck before of after practice.  Please do not disturb coaches during practice as their full attention shall be directed to the swimmers.

 

Q:  What is so great about ASG?

A:   ASG has a huge history of developing great athletes from Age-Group swimmers to Olympic Trial Qualifiers and National Team members, but most importantly athletes at ASG learn to become responsible for their own progression in the sport.  Learning is achieved through guidance and freedom to progress on their own wants and needs, this creates a great work ethic, great athletes and very unique personalities
