Aquadillos Swim Team
The Georgetown Aquadillos is a competitive, summer league swim team offering high quality professional coaching and technique instruction for kids ages 17 and under. The goal of our team is to provide every member an opportunity to improve swimming skills and achieve success at his or her level of ability, from novice to international competitor.
The Georgetown Aquadillos were established in 1987. It is run by its elected Board of Directors which meets each month. In 2019 we had 305 swimmers! We anticipate having 180 swimmers this year.
We are a 501c3 nonprofit and receive zero financial support from any public agency. Registration fees, fundraising projects and donations from civic-minded businesses and professionals cover our expenses.
Our team is fun, the races are short distances, and our athletes learn to become better swimmers. Our program focuses on teaching competitive elements of swimming including proper stroke technique, starts, and turns.
We are a member of the Northwest Swim Circuit (NWSC), a 13 team league in the Austin area. Our season lasts 8 weeks, beginning the first week of May through the last weekend in June. We swim 6 dual meets per season on Saturday mornings against other swim teams in the Austin area. We have a championship meet at the completion of our dual meets. At the end of the season, swimmers who have obtained a qualifying time during the season are invited to compete at an Invitational Swim Meet. The objectives of the NWSC are to help young swimmers develop physical fitness, self-discipline, self-confidence, proficiency in competitive swimming strokes, a determination to do one's best, good sportsmanship, and to provide an enjoyable summer activity for all its members.
After school practice begins on May 3rd at the Village Pool. Once school is out, practices switch to the mornings and and are held at the Williams Drive Pool for the remainder of the season. Practice details can be found here.
