MRAC RECREATIONAL Swim Club
MRAC Recreational Swim Club
Registration is now open for the 2019 Summer session of the MRAC Recreational Swim Club! We will be initially registering only previous club members or swimmers with club or team experience. Prospective swimmers who have not previously been in the club or on the Sea Devils Swim Team must pass a swim test administered by the coach at the first practice on June 3. Those who pass will be permitted to register. Registration fee is $40, due at the time of registration. Swimmers who have not paid will not be permitted to participate.
The Moab Recreation and Aquatic Center Swim Club is a program for young swimmers who desire an opportunity to refine their techniques with the goal of becoming proficient and possibly competitive swimmers. It is our hope that the club will build enthusiasm for the sport of swimming and will encourage members to move on to the competitive swim team once they are ready. Swim Club will hold a year-end inter-squad meet to provide swimmers the experience of a quasi-competitive event.
Summer practices will be held Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 - 9:00 a.m. at the MRAC from June 3 through July 31. The focus is on stroke development, conditioning and fun!
The MRAC Swim Club is not intended to take the place of swim lessons. Swimmers will be required to meet the following proficiency requirements in order to participate:
- Swimmers must be able to swim 25 yards (one length) freestyle and 25 yards backstroke.
- Club coach will have discretion to fail a swimmer, even if the child completes the swim, for weak form or inadequate conditioning. In these cases, coaches may recommend swim lessons.
We ask that registered swimmers come dressed appropriately (competition one-piece swim suits for girls and swim trunks or jammers for boys) and highly recommend goggles and caps for practice. Goggles and caps are available for purchase at the MRAC.
Parents are expected to be prepared to help with Club events; e.g., organizing the year-end meet and party and any other assistance that coaches may require.
Advanced swimmers are encouraged to join Swim Club if they are not yet old or experienced enough to try out for the GCHS Swim Team. Swimmers who desire preparation for competition will be accommodated and encouraged to compete on an individual basis in away meets by invitation and will also receive instruction intended to prepare them for GCHS Swim Team.
