Interest in Joining ACE


The Aquatic Club of Elkhorn (ACE) is a year-round swim competitive program. Our training groups have limited capacity for new swim team members. We gather information year round for those who are interested in joining our competition based ACE swim team. Our tryout coordinator will periodically reach out through the year to those who have expressed interest in having their swimmer tryout for the ACE swim team when our groups have availability to accept new swimmers.


Our season starts the last week of August and runs through the end of July. 


Members of the ACE swim team are expected to adhere to practice attendance requirements, as well as participation in USA Swimming sanctioned swim meets. Our parents are obligated to actively participate as MeetCREW volunteers at our hosted swim meets.  Information regarding our practice groups, costs to participate, etc. can be found under our TEAM INFO link above.


If you are inquiring for a currently registered USA Swimming member seeking a club transfer, please email the ACE Club Manager directly regarding tryout information. 


We strongly encourage parents to complete an interest form for your swimmer (see information below) so we can contact you when we scheduled our next round of tryouts.  


For those swimmers new to the sport of competitive swimming and wish to be considered for the ACE team should be:

    •    Comfortable being in deep water without holding on to the side or ropes.

    •    Knows how to swim the four racing strokes:  Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke & Butterfly.

    •    Able to swim a 100 yard Individual Medley without stopping at the wall or on the lane ropes to rest.

    •    Comfortable diving off the side of the pool.

    •    Able to complete a flip turn or in progress of learning a flipturn.


Maintaining the high quality standards of ACE is paramount. We do not put kids in groups for the sake of taking as many as can fit into a pool. That would defeat the purpose of quality instruction, and the high quality experience that we’re known for here at ACE.  


Participation in our tryouts does not guarantee of placement on the team.


Thank you for being interested in the Aquatic Club of Elkhorn, and we hope to see you soon!
