SouthWest Aquatic Club
SWAC is a member of the Suburban Aquatic League, referred to as the SAL.
Our team is designed for emergent competitive age group swimmers.
We strive to improve the stroke mechanics of all of our swimmers while also featuring aerobic training
appropriate for each skill level.
Season and Community Served
The SWAC season begins with practices in early October and ends in early February with championships. The team is comprised of both swimmers and divers. Qualified individuals who are districted to attend CB South High School, CB West High School, or those who live in the surrounding non-CB communities would be members of SWAC. Out of district residents pay a yearly per family fee for participation.
Practices and Meets
SWAC groups its participants by age. Age is determined as of October 31st of the current year. Swimmers generally have practice offered five nights a week at either CB South High School or CB East High School depending on the night of the week. Dual meets, meets in which two teams compete against each other, are held on Saturdays. There are typically seven dual meets between the months of November, December and January. The dual meets in November and December are "regular" season meets. The dual meets in January are championship dual meets and swimmers must have competed in a minimum of two of the regular dual meets in order to attend. SWAC swimmers also have access to several invitational meets, meets in which participants compete on an individual, rather than team basis, usually held on Sundays.
The coaches like to see participants practicing a minimum of three nights per week, but understand that other activities may interfere with practices at times. Attendance at as many of the seven dual meets as possible is expected with a minimum of three of the five "regular" season meets being a requirement for participants to keep their spot on the team for the next season. Participation in invitational meets is completely optional and does not count toward the required three of five meet minimum. Parents are required to volunteer at dual meets. The minimum requirements will be communicated by the parent board. Parents should be prepared to volunteer at most invitationals for which they have signed their child up to participate.
SWAC members pay a program fee to the CB Community School for the program and a participation fee to the SWAC Parents' Association, which covers items such as ribbons and the team gift. See the fee information section in the registration link below for prices.
