Interest in Joining ACE

 

The Aquatic Club of Elkhorn (ACE) is a year-round swim competitive program.  We are currently gathering information for those who wish to actively participate and compete as part of the ACE swim team.

 

Our season starts the first week of September 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, cost, etc. can be found under our TEAM INFO link above.

 

 

ACE tryouts for the 2020-21 season will hopefully take place in late July/ early August (this will be dependent upon the COVID-19 restrictions in place). At this time, we do not have specific tryout dates scheduled.  

 

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 for our next scheduled tryouts.  

 

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

    •    Comfortable in deep water 

    •    Proficient in the four racing strokes: 

    Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly

    •    Comfortable diving off the side of the pool

    •    Able to complete a flip turn

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

 

Maintaining the high quality standards of ACE is paramount. Therefore we don’t want to 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!
