The Iguanas Swim Club offers training and practice groups for swimmers of all ages and ability levels.

  • It is our goal 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. Swimmers ages 5 and up must be able to swim unassisted at least 25yds in order to join.
  • The Iguanas are proud to offer fee assistance to families who provide evidence of low income (a school free lunch form, pay stub or tax return) to us. You provide a photo or copy this form within 1 week of the beginning of fall season by  email  to l.gross7000@yahoo.com or text via phone.
  • 2017-18  fees : $690 for 8 and Under, $780 for 9-13, $370 for High School. The fee includes the USA Swimming card ($75) but does not include meet fees ($10 to $25 per meet session) or gear.

    Installments ($350 initial payment and 2 more equal payments drawn on 11/1 and 12/1) and need based assistance available. Families with multiple swimmers receive $50 off for each extra family member. Swim Lessons- $160 for 8 week session .

Please read all info we provide on the website as it will answer most of your questions!   Click Here to send us an email request for more information if you need to discuss anything with the head coach- note that we provide fee assistance based on  financial need for all ages.

Practices are offered up to 5 and 6 days a week during winter season. Swimmers attend based on their age, experience and goals. Swimmers are often grouped by age and gender and not only ability and group characteristic.

 The Swim season runs between September and March.  Fees cover the training for the entire season and include the $68 USA Swimming membership. Fees do not include meets ($10-$25) or gear. The initial registration fee is $350 for all swimmers except those receiving income based assistance.  Families can choose to pay in full at the beginning of season or make a payment and 2 more installments.   If you choose the installment pay option you will be billed for the balance of your fees in equal payments on Nov 1 and Dec 1.

 

Below are the  practice times and days for each group at both pools. Note that there may be adjustments based on the number of swimmers assigned to each group and available pool time. We also work with families on what best suits their schedule!
