Guppies Swim Team

The Guppies swim team is a program for youngsters under the age of eight who either do not wish to compete on a weekly basis or need some help developing their strokes, strength or endurance. This program is 5 days a week for the first 30 minutes of swim team. Primarily in the baby end of the pool, the guppies work on swimming laps the width of the pool. Over the course of the summer, they will most likely be invited to at least one guppies meet.

 

Competitive Swim Team
This program is typically for athletes 6 years and up (this is a suggested age). swimmers practice 5 times a week for 1 hour at a time depending on the age group. The swim team prepares athletes for competition by focusing on stroke correction and racing strategies. Our primary focus is to ensure that all participants have fun, while at the same time gain a sense of competitive discipline. The summer swimming season consists of 5 league meets, a divisional time trial, and a league championship. The league meets are held on 5 consecutive Wednesday nights starting the first week of July. The competitions begin about 5:30 PM and usually end up finishing by 9:00 PM.

The divisional time trial and championship meet are scheduled early in August.

Throughout the regular season all participants will have a chance to swim. The NAA swim team rules restrict the number of participants in each event so, depending on the number of participants in any one category, swimmers may not swim each meet.
