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 your swimmer is asked to leave the team due to the inability to swim.
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.
