FAQS

How long is the swim team season?

    • The swim team season goes from the day after Memorial Day through the end of July.


How much of a time commitment is the swim team?

    • Practices: Plan on your child attending a 1-hour practice every weekday after school (until school lets out), and then every weekday morning (for the rest of the season).

    • Meets: In addition to swim practices, there are JV swim meets (for kids 12 and under) on Wednesday evenings, and Varsity swim meets (for all kids!) on Saturday mornings. Swim meets start in late June and go through the end of July.


How does my child get on the swim team?

    • Your child needs to be able to swim one length of the pool unassisted, without struggling ('big' arms, face in the water), and meet minimum safety requirements (such as treading water). After that, the coaches will take it from there!

    • If your child does not qualify for the team, they may be placed on the "Pre-Team" where they will get additional instruction and the opportunity to try out for the team again after a few weeks.


My child isn't that great of a swimmer, and they don't know all the strokes. Should they join?

    • Yes! The most wonderful aspect of swim team is the consistent practices and instruction you get from our wonderful coaches, turning your kids into strong swimmers! As long as they qualify to get on the team, they can join!


My child goes to the camp at NPE (or other camps) - how does that work with practice?

    • If your child attends the camp at NPE, most parents have their child attend the early practice and either have their child leave practice a little early to go to the camp, or stay for the whole practice and show up a little later to camp. Both the camp and swim practice are flexible with this!

    • If your child attends another camp that they need to get to, they can leave practice early as needed or skip certain days. Be sure to discuss this with the coaches so they know what's going on. We just want your kids to swim as much as they can as long as it doesn't cause any extra stress!

What are the end-of-season championships?

There are three end-of-season championships:

    • Division Champs: The Delco Swim League is made up of three divisions (A, B, C). "Champs" is a meet made up of the top two swimmers (over the season) from each club in their Division. The top two winners from each event move on to the "Meet of Champs."

    • Meet of Champs: This meet is made up of the top two winners from each of the Division Champs meets (from ALL swim clubs in the league: A, B, and C). Approximately 16 swim clubs participate. The top two winners from this meet go on to the Elite Meet.

    • Elite Meet: This is the final meet of the season, and is made up of the top two swimmers from each event from the Meet of Champs.
