Eaglet Swim Team (6 - 16 years-old)
The Eaglets are a recreational swim team that competes against other teams in the local area.  The team is designed to be competitive and fun. There are both home and away meets. There are no qualification times for swimming in the meets. All team members must compete. Practices are held five days per week. 

Team members must be able to swim at least 25 yards of the crawl stroke. Any child, who needs to learn more strokes or who needs stroke work, should enroll in swimming lessons as well, so that they may receive more reinforcement in perfecting their swimming skills. 

Practices are held five days per week and all team members are expected to attend a minimum of three practices per week. The group your child will practice with will be determined the first few days of practice. There will be no practice July 4.
