Summer Rec Try Outs
Thank you for your expressed interest in the Atlantic Club Summer Recreation Swim Team.  For any swimmer wishing to join the team, they must come and try out.  I have attached the link below to an online form that needs to be filled out prior to the try out date.  
 
There is a $15 fee associated with the try out.  If you already have a credit card on file at TAC, an email of the receipt of the charge will be sent to you.  Otherwise, the Club will contact you on your payment method of choice.  
 
Try out dates are:
         Wednesday April 7 at 5pm

         Saturday May 22 at 11am
 
We will assign you a try out date.  Please indicate if a date does not work for you, and we will try to accommodate your schedule as best we can.  THERE WILL BE NO WALK INS.  
 
Here you will see the requirements for each age group.  Please know that your swimmer does not have to be "perfect."  Part of our program is teaching proper technique.
 

Ages 8 and Under will swim: 25 yards/meters Freestyle (one lap), 25 yards/meters Backstroke, and 25 yards/meters of any additional stroke they know.

Ages 9 and 10 will swim: 50 yards/meters Freestyle (two laps), 50 yards/meters Backstroke, and 50 yards/meters any additional strokes they know. 


Ages 11 and 12 will swim: 50 yards/meters Freestyle (two laps), Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly.

Ages 13 and 14 and any competitive experienced swimmer: swimmers interested in joining the team should email Coach Denise Salvatore at [email protected]  In your email, please include top times in all events as well as a brief summary of your competitive experience.
 
 
If your swimmer is offered a spot, our season begins the week of June 21 and runs through August 8.  The cost for the 7-week season is $325.  Practices will be in the afternoons on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.  We will assign your swimmer a group that is both age and skill appropriate.  Depending on the number of swimmers we have, practice start times will be 3:45, 4:45 and 5:45PM and will last for an hour.  You do not get to choose your practice time.  It will be assigned to you.   
 
We are scheduled to have 6 meets this season that will run through the month of July.  They are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, and they will all be outside.  Our Championship Relay event is tentatively at Neptune Aquatics, and that is indoors.  The top 4-6 swimmers in each age group qualify to attend.  All but 2 of our meets are going to be held at TAC this summer.  Due to COVID, there will be 2 sessions of meets.  10 and under and 11 and Over.  Normally all the swimmers are together, but the League is trying to keep attendance numbers low.  We have not set our guidelines as to parent attendance yet, as we are waiting to see how things look in June/July.
 
Parents and swimmers must wear a mask on TAC property, until instructed to remove. 
 
Please fill out this form and send it back to me as soon as possible.  
We look forward to meeting your swimmer!
