Our team has both a recreational (learning) team and a competitive team.

The recreational team consists of the Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced groups. These groups are eligible to attend dual/tri meets for the season. Swimmers will need to attend two meets in the summer, and three meets in the fall/winter seasons to qualify for the championship (we do not have meets in the spring). There is no additional cost to attend these meets. Parents will be needed to participate in hosted meets (lane timers, referee, and concessions).

Our competitive team, USA, is for members looking to compete at a higher level. The meets attended require fees to register for an event. Registration for the events happens earlier in the season. The meets we attend are chosen by the parent board and coordinated with the head coach. Swimmers need to be registered with Illinois Swimming to register for the events. USA swimmers can attend the dual/tri meets as well. Parent volunteers will be needed at selected meets.
