2021 Spring Long Course Swim Team Registration

Spring Season - April 5th to June 11th

Summer Season - June 12th to Championship season ending meet end of July/early August

 

Thank you for your patience while we plan for the indoor season.

As with everything these days, things constantly change and we are working to offer your swimmer the best experience we can during this time.

 

We look forward to the months ahead with more pool time becoming available and more swimmers allowed in the water per practice. It has been a long road to this point over the last year, but we are proud of what we have accomplished and are stronger together. Our coaches have had a plan from the start and our swimmers have put forth great effort and determination which is evident in the great times that have been swum at meets leading to the close of the season.

As many of us have experienced this past year, life can change in a blink of an eye. You will not see a complete schedule for Spring at this point. Please know, we continue to give a great amount of attention on securing practice locations and times. April’s schedule will continue like the winter schedule, and as we move into May, we look forward to more pool availability. As May through August practices become confirmed and more time becomes available, the schedule will be updated to offer your swimmer as much opportunity as we can.

Our Spring season will begin April 5th and continue through June 13th culminating with the MAC Challenge Meet, June 11-13th. The Summer Session will then start and go through the end of the championship season ending meet for your swimmer.

To prevent any crazy panic over registration, this season when a training group is split into several sub-groups, we have made every effort to equalize the practice schedule and provide enough space for everyone who wants to swim. Each sub-group was planned with an equal mix of practice times and locations as the others.

We have pushed opening registration to Tuesday, March 30th to gain as much concrete information as we can provide you at registration. Each day, brings us more details from our facilities. On Monday there will be a posted pdf schedule to use as a guide for the Spring season. This is only a guide. As more pools open, times are confirmed and additional practice time becomes available, we will continue to update the schedule and post it online.

 

New to MAC? 

Usually we have in-person group evaluations that help guide your swimmer towards the most appropriate group for their skill level. Since we cannot conduct group evaluations this year, we'll work together to get your swimmer placed in the group which will benefit them the best. Contact our Team Manager, Janis Katz at [email protected] for assistance in group placement.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE: Our April pool time remains fairly similar to winter. May will bring pools which are not yet 100% confirmed and not fully utilized on this schedule. The schedule for May
               
and beyond will change, but this will give a representation of the practice schedule. As pool time opens up, we will adjust to add practices where needed.
               
Scheduling will also be determined by registration numbers and adjusted when/where necessary. The practice schedule on meet weekends will be adjusted depending on meet participation.
