Swimmers are divided by age group according to their age as of May 31, 2018.
Age groups at a meet are divided as follows:
- 6 & Under
- 8 & Under
- 9 & 10
- 11 & 12
- 13 & 14
- 15 to 18
All children who are 8 years old and younger and are able to swim one length of the pool without assistance, or 9 years of age and older and are able to swim two lengths of the pool without assistance are eligible to participate.
While we are a recreational swim team with swimmers of all abilities, we are nevertheless a competitive swim team, not a learn-to-swim program. If your child is able to swim one length of the pool without assistance, we’ll be able to make him/her a better swimmer and teach them some of the different competitive strokes.
For safety reasons, if your child does not know how to swim and cannot swim one length of the pool unassisted, we recommend you enroll him/her in the swimming lessons offered by the pool or another swim lesson program.
