The focus of the team is swimming for endurance and technique with an emphasis on stroke refinement, racing fundamentals, self improvement and good sportsmanship. Swimming is a complex skill that takes many years to learn through swim lessons before children are ready to participate in swim team. We recommend private swim lessons for swimmers who want one-on-one attention. Another option is to attend Learn-to-Swim Group lessons prior to signing up for Aqua Eagles.

Pre-requisites:
This program is open to anyone 6+ years who has successfully passed Learn-To-Swim Level 4 or can demonstrate skills taught in Learn-To-Swim Level 4 including Freestyle, Breaststroke, Butterfly, Backstroke, flip turns and diving headfirst.

Coaches:
10+ Head Coach: Lindsay Carlson
6-9 Head Coach: Ali Murray
Assistant Coach: Jordan Brown
Assistant Coach: Kaeli Niemeyer

Swim Meets:
Swim meets are optional and entries will be assigned one week prior to the meet at the coaches discretion. Children 6-9 years old swim 25 yards in each event and children 10+ swim 50 yards in each event. Relays are optional but encouraged! Please make sure to pre-register with the coaches by each deadline, late entries are not allowed after the meet deadline. Also please inform coaches if your child needs to scratch from events (not show up for any reason).

Uniforms:
WECMRD provides a swim cap and a T-shirt for the season. Swimmers typically wear a black bathing suit, but it’s not required.
