Swim Team Meet Schedule – 2022
Welcome to the Summer of 2022 Beach Club Swim team! We are excited for the warm weather and ready to start a new season of water programming. We are pleased to announce that Nicole Ciancarelli will be returning this summer has Aquatics Director. We are actively looking for an assistant coach to better supprt the team. The pool staff includes many familiar faces. We are happy to have head guard Oliver Blake, Carly Caswell, Phoebe Blake, Max Brown, Quinn Burns, and Gannon Ritter back on the deck in 2022. We welcome Addre Berglund, Paige Spencer, Bradley Walters, and Chris Raymond as new lifeguards.
We will continue to offer Water Aerobics, Early Bird Swim, Badge Programs, Swim Lessons, and the Swim Team, in addition to promoting water safety programs for all. Private Lessons are available and can be scheduled at the front desk.
Following SAL League rules, swim team participation is open to all club members who are 18 or under during the summer swim season. Swim team members must be able to swim one length independently, be comfortable in deep water, and be willing to learn basic headfirst entries. With the shortened daily practice, you can expect that this season will have a higher degree of focus on swimming fundamentals (strokes, turns, and start drills).
Swim Team will practice five days a week using our traditional schedule. Monday, Wednesday and Friday practices will run from 9-10:30 AM for Juniors and Seniors and 9-10 AM for Age Group swimmers. The swimmer groups are decided based upon both age and ability. Tuesday and Thursday practices will focus on swimming fundamentals (strokes, turns and start drills) and run from 9-10 AM for all age groups.
The Junior Team is available to swimmers who would like to participate in the swim team but still need more focused swim instruction. Junior Team practices take will take place during swim lessons on Tuesdays and Thursdays or Monday and Wednesday from 11:00 to 11:30. Please refer to the Junior Team membership requirements below.
Additionally, we will continue to offer the Senior Team for those members who are rising juniors or seniors. Many of these members have summer jobs or other responsibilities and are unable to attend daily practice but would still like to be part of the team. Senior Team members are welcome to attend swim practice when their schedule allows. If a Senior Team member is at the beach club during normal practice time, it is expected that they participate. In addition, they are encouraged and welcome to participate in all swim team meets. Please note that according to SAL rules, any swimmer who swims at the championship meet must have swum in at least one regular season meet.
The first day of practice will be on Monday, June 20th. Please note that all completed forms, signed waivers, and payment must be received before swimmers can participate. Please have all swim team paperwork submitted by Friday, June 17th. Please drop off a check or pay directly on the beach club website. No child will be able to participate until these requirements are met. No child will be able to participate until these requirements are met.

Please note that the lap lane is open for membership use at all times except during swim team practice. If you have a question about lap lane use, please speak to a lifeguard or the manager on duty.

The Committee also wants to remind members that it is the policy of the Beach Club that any child under the age of twelve must be accompanied on the deck by a parent or designated adult at all times, this includes swim team practice.
