MRAC RECREATIONAL Swim Club
MRAC Recreational Swim Club
* Notice: Due to the recent Utah COVID-19 Mandate on 11/8/2020, Swim Club will be cancelled until November 23d. We will reassess when we hear more from the Governor.
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.
Swim Club is a very popular program and a great opportunity for kids to develop their strokes and hone competitive technique in a fun and encouraging environment. Feel free to call for more information or drop by to pick up an info sheet. You may also show up at the first parent meeting if you have more questions for the coaches about the program!
Fall 2020 Dates: 11/3 - mid January (11/3 is the first day/tryouts for new swimmers)
Ages: 8 - 14 (8th Grade)
Coach: Wendy Young
Registration Fee: $60 (Please arrive on 11/3 at 5:00pm to register your child)
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 enough 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.
* Due to COVID-19, we may need to limit the amount of swimmers and cannot guarantee that there won't be any interruptions to the program. Please help us prevent this by sending your child with a mask and informing them about how social distancing can keep this program running.
