Please note that in order for your child to participate on the swim team he or she MUST be able to get across the pool without assistance and without holding onto the side or lane line. If your child is close to reaching those milestones but not quite there we encourage you to enroll him or her in swim lessons which will be organized through the pool lifeguards - look for more info on the pool bulletin board. We are happy to have anyone join the team after the season begins if they reach these milestones
