Swim Team

This program is open to boys and girls, ages 5-18, who love to swim and would enjoy competing in this sport. Five-year-olds should be at Level 3 (stroke readiness) ability or be able to swim the width of the shallow end of the pool. Practice will begin as soon as the pool opens and weather permits. Practices will be held from 12:00 - 12:45 for ages 10 and under and at 12:45 - 1:30 for ages 11-18, Monday through Thursday. Competition is held in the following age groups: 8 and under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, and 15-18, with boys and girls competing separately.

Thunder and Lightning

If thunder and / or lightning are spotted during a lesson, we NEED to get out of the water immediately! While we are out of the water, we will talk about safety and/or practice land drills.

Class Cancellations

Due to the ever-changing weather in Wisconsin, occasionally a class may have to be cancelled. If you are wondering if classes will be held that day, please call us at the pool at 375-5884, ½ hour before your child's class time. Our staff or a recorded message will keep you updated.
