Swim team is not intended to supplant swimming lessons. It is about improving your swimming abilities in a fun, but competitive, environment.

  • All swimmers must know freestyle and backstroke
  • 6 years and under must swim 12.5 yards of freestyle and backstroke
  • 7 years and over must swim 25 yards of freestyle and backstroke (breast and fly is optimal too
  • Proof of proficiency can also be provided from a Learn to Swim program by producing a certificate that asserts that your swimmer meets the minimum requirements or has completed the appropriate level.

Swimmers that cannot meet these requirements will be removed from the roster for that season and refunded the full registration fee. Age-group coaches will work with any swimmer close to eligibility or with special needs.

The swimmer age-group cutoff date will be strongly enforced. A swimmer must demonstrate to the Head Coach and swim team Parent Board that they have the swimming ability to practice with an older age group. Recommendations for a swimmer to move up will be made by the head coach and all moves will be decided by the Bucs Parent Board. If approved, the swimmer will be expected to practice in the approved age group. Swimmers can also move up if they have a summer birthday and moving up allows them to practice with classmates in their grade. All swimmers are required to compete during meets in their actual age groups.
