Every swimmer who walks onto the pool deck, regardless of their age, athletic ability, or competitiveness, is encouraged to join STOP.  Our team is for all swimmers ranging from those who are learning to swim for the first time, to the competitive swimmers who desire to compete at a National level.  We have groups for ages between 4 - 18.  Although STOP is a competitive team, we understand that not all swimmers have the desire to be competitive.  All swimmers are placed into workout groups based on their age, ability, and competitive level.  Workout groups range from 30 minutes for our younger swimmers, up to 2.5 hours for our older competitive swimmers.



Our Developmental "Learn to Swim" Program is specifically designed to meet the needs of our young swimmers who have the desire to be in the water, but lack the swimming skills.  In this program, swimmers work in groups with instructors in the water.  Swimmers do not need to know how to swim the specific strokes to participate.  This program has a more intensive and progressive approach than your traditional swim lessons with the goal to develop the swimmer's skills so that they are able to make the transition to swim team groups.

The minimum ability to join changes throughout the year.  Currently, swimmers must be able to move themselves independently through the water for 5 yards.  Minimum age is 4 years old.

Practices are generally held Monday - Friday.

Although swimmers are assigned a specific practice time and group based on ability, swimmers have the flexibility to attend the days they want to attend. 





Families pay monthly dues, to allow their children to participate as much or as little as they like.

1st Child = $120 a month - 2nd Child = $110 a month - All others = $100 a month.

Allows your swimmer to swim up to 12 days per month
