Does my child need to know how to swim?
The Georgetown Aquadillos is not a learn-to-swim program or group swim lessons, nor do we have the ability to assign a coach to each swimmer. Swimmers without basic swimming skills pose a safety issue to themselves and a potential liability to the team.
Your swimmer should already have some basic swimming skills before joining the team and be able to swim the entire length of the pool (25 yards) unassisted prior to the first day of practice. No refunds will be given if a swimmer is asked to leave the team.
Swim lessons are available through the City of Georgetown.
Does my swimmer need to know all of the swimming strokes?
No. Your swimmer only needs to have the stamina to swim 25 yards. Our practice program is designed to acquaint and teach young swimmers proper strokes and introduce the training required for today's competitive swimming. Emphasis is placed on learning the proper stroke, start and turn techniques as well as the improvement of each swimmer’s "personal best" time in each event.
How often do the kids practice?
Practice is held Monday through Friday beginning May 10th and through the entirety of the season.
Do swimmers have to be at all practices?
Attendance to practice is not mandatory but highly encouraged. The more your swimmer goes to practice the better the swimmer gets. With that being said, we understand that everyone has busy lives and need to balance other activities and school.
How long is the swim season?
Our 2021 season lasts 9 weeks, beginning May 10th through July 10th. Due to Covid 19, our 2021 season will look and feel a little different. We will be swimming against other teams in the NWSC virtually. The Dillos will swim in Georgetown and the other teams will swim at their home pool. Racing times will be merged by computer staff upon completion of both meets.
Are the swim meets required?
Swimmers are required to participate in a minimum of 2 official meets per season; however, we strongly encourage all swimmers to participate in every swim meet if possible. Swimmers who do not participate in the required number of meets will not be eligible to early register the following season. Meets provide the opportunity for swimmers to gauge their progress and see the results of their hard work during practice. Each and every swimmer is critical to the team’s overall performance and is therefore expected to participate in as many meets as possible. League rules require each swimmer to have swum in a minimum of two meets during the regular season in order to be eligible to swim at the Divisional Meet in July. It is our team goal to have 100% participation at the Divisional Meet.
Is it mandatory that we volunteer?
Yes. The Northwest Swim Circuit (NWSC) and the Georgetown Aquadillos are parent run organizations. It would not be possible to run a meet without our parent volunteers. In order for your swimmer(s) to participate in any of the swim meets, it is mandatory that you volunteer for at least one position in either the first or second half of each meet. Due to Covid 19, volunteering will be much different for the 2021 season.
How many events does a swimmer swim?
Swimmers may only participate in up to 3 individual events and 2 relays (1 relay for six and under). You may find your swimmer in fewer events. This is because it is not always possible to have all swimmers swim the relays and/or they are not yet able to legally swim certain strokes within a reasonable time.
What is the order of the Medley Relay?
(1) Backstroke (2) Breaststroke (3) Butterfly (4) Freestyle
What does "INV" next to a child's name mean on the results page?
The swimmer has qualified for the Invitational Meet. Unfortunately, we will not be having a 2021 Invitational meet.
When do swimmers receive ribbons from meets?
Ribbons will be stored in the family folders. Family folders will be available the following Saturday after a meet. The Ribbons Coordinator will hand your family their ribbons.
What is meet mobile?
Meet mobile is a paid app for your phone and provides real-time meet results and standings from anywhere, at any time. You can flag your swimmer/s as “favorites” and then easily filter down to see both completed results and upcoming schedule. This app is NOT mandatory but the results are faster than what our computer volunteers can print and post!
