Swimming is one of the most popular sports in the world. Unlike other sports, swimming is a life skill that is taught, first, to ensure safety and, secondly, for sports and competition purposes. Aquatics covers a great variety of swimming skills, from short sprints to longer events and relays, ensuring that an athlete can find the right fit for them.
Our season starts in February and goes until June. Practices are Sunday afternoons. Local competitions are in April or May and there is a state swim competition in June. Athletes provide their own swimsuits and towels. Athletes may also have goggles and a swim cap if they choose. If they require a life jacket, they must provide one and it must be a certified life jacket.
From individual to relay
There is an event for everyone from athletes who need assistance (through a flotation device and/or an assistant in the water) to more independent athletes who can compete with a variety of strokes and longer distances. No matter the skill level we can find a place for any athlete. Athletes requiring an assistant in the water will need to provide their own. Assistants who help at swim competitions will need to do the level one coach training.
There is a wide array of events our athletes can participate in. We can help find the right event to match each athlete's strengths from freestyle, breast stroke, to assisted swim. Click below to see all the swimming events.
