2019 Chairpersons: Jenny Moles, Kim Adams, and Kim O’Brien                              

Membership on the swim/dive team is open to all girls and boys 17 and under (age as of 6/15/19). The team participates in meets with other Division I clubs in the Fairfield County Swimming League. All parents of team members are required to volunteer at meets during the summer.

SWIM TEAM: The goal of our swim team is to foster team spirit and encourage individual progress. Children of the same age practice at the same time. The coaches enter swimmers in Green or White meets based on their swim times. The Green meets are more competitive than the White meets. An individual swimmer may swim in both Green and White meets during the summer. Not all young swimmers are ready for the swim team and may be encouraged to participate in the pre‑team program or lessons. Swim team members must be able to complete 25 meters (free/back) with proper breathing technique. The swim coach will recommend the appropriate placement for each child.

SWIM CLINICS offer team members an opportunity to develop and perfect stroke techniques. Clinics are held for 30 minutes, 4 days a week and will concentrate each week on a different stroke. In addition, weekend clinics focusing upon the technical aspects of starts, turns, and finishes will be offered.

PRE-TEAM (swim/dive) is considered to be part of the swim/dive lessons program. The swim/dive lesson fee schedule applies for pre-team.

GROUP SWIM LESSONS are available for groups of 4–6 children. Group lessons meet for 30 minutes in the afternoon 4 days a week. Lessons can be scheduled for one week or for several weeks. The fee schedule and a sign-up sheet will be posted at the Club at the beginning of and throughout the season.

DIVE TEAM competes in dual meets along with the swim team throughout the summer. Diving team practice is held every day except during inclement weather and when it conflicts with meets. The head dive coach will recommend the appropriate placement for each child.

PRIVATE SWIM and DIVE LESSONS can be arranged directly with the coach of your choice. All lessons must be billed through MSX Club.

WATER POLO is an active part of the summer aquatics program. All children (age 8 or older) are welcome on the team. No prior water polo or swim team experience is necessary. The team has three different age groups, Midgets (10-year-olds & under*), Juniors (11 to 13-year-olds*) and Seniors (14 & over*) and competes in matches against FCSL Division 3 teams.

*All ages are as of 6/15/19. Please note that a child must be 8 years old by June 15, 2019 to participate in water polo.
