BLAZE SWIM CLUB INFORMATION
The Johnston Blaze Swim Club is a year-round club with four seasons (Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer). We utilize 'Team Unify' as our team management software to assist with registration, swim meet registration, tracking swimmer information, and more.
If a current session is closed online you may call the CE Office at 278-0552 to see if you can still register for the season and/or to pay. Season payments need to be made before the child begins practice.
Anyone can become a member of the Blaze Team that can swim 25 yards Freestyle and Backstroke unassisted.
The focus of practice will be on stroke development, turns, endurance conditioning and meet fundamentals. Members will have the opportunity to swim local meets and/or USA meets.
Meet or Splash Fees: Set by hosting site to swim in events.
Coaches Fee: This fee may be charged to assist with costs associated with sending a coach to some USA meets where a large number of Blaze swimmers have registered.
USA meets do have a fee called a splash fee that is paid to the host team and individual race fees. Generally the splash fee is $5 and race fees are $6/race entered. Swimmers do not have to participate in any of these meets, but if they do, then you as the parent would be responsible for those fees. After you register for meets through Team Unify, your meet fees will be added to your account. You will receive monthly invoices if you have a balance on your account.
Team practices will be divided by training groups. At meets, members will swim according to USA divisions (8-under, 10-under, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, and 17-18).
