The 2022 Swim Team fee of $80.00 per swimmer must be paid via Community Pass. We will collect your volunteer fee of $75.00 per family at the Swim Team meeting or the first practice. Volunteer checks will be returned at the end of the season. No one will be permitted to participate until the Swim Team fee and Volunteer check has been made. Swimmers cannot join if they have not paid.
Parents — below you will find two Sign Up Genius links. Please use these to sign your child/ children up for the meet on Wednesday – which is away at Hasbrouck Heights. Warm ups begin at 5:00pm and the meet starts at 5:30pm. Please arrive on time! We need parent volunteers to work the meet! Please sign up if you are available. We request that parents volunteer to work at 3 meets during the season. If you haven’t already done so, please give me ( or drop at the office) your $75 volunteer check which you will receive back if you have met your volunteer requirement.

How does the swim Team Communicate with the team? All communications are done through our email address.
How do I sign up for meets, volunteer, and anything else to do with the swim team? We use SignUp Genius to sign up for almost everything. You will receive an invite when it’s time to sign up for anything to do with the team.

Do I have to attend practice to swim in meets? You must attend the daily morning practices to swim in the meets.
How long is the swim team season? The season goes from preseason until the last week in July except for the swimmer who qualifies for the NJPMA championships; then they go until the 1st whole week of August.
How is it determined if my child goes to the NJPMA championships? Based on the time of last year’s championships for their stroke and age group.
Is this a swim lesson? Swim Team does NOT swim Lessons; your child must know the fundamentals of the strokes; the coaches will help improve the strokes to build endurance and strength.
Does my child need to know how to swim? Yes, the 5/6-year old’s must be able to swim across the far section of the pool without assistance; this is swim team is not swim lessons.

Does the club provide transportation to away meets? No, we do not, nor can our coaches drive swimmers. It is the parent’s responsibility to get their swimmers to the meet.
