Registration has begun for the 2015 Swim Team and Pre-Team programs.
The Bernardsville Swim Team is comprised of boys and girls, aged 7-18 yrs of age who are interested in competitive swimming. The team competes in the Morris County Swim League and participates in 8 dual meets. Practices begin June 22nd and concludes with the Meet of Champions. Regular attendance at practice is recommended. Although the nature of the team is competitive, fun activities such as bagel breakfasts and a Team Pasta party are planned at the pool. Swim Team members are encouraged to purchase a team suit.
The Summer swim team divides children into age groups for competitive swimming. A Child’s swimming age is determined by their age as of July 1st. The Swim Team is for children who are competent swimmers and are interested in participating in competitive meets. Swimmers must be able to swim at least two of the competitive strokes proficiently. All swim team members must be members of the Bernardsville Pool.
Fee is $100 including swim cap, and $90 each additional child up to 5.
The pre-team program is designed for the 6-8 year old swimmer who is interested in becoming a member of the competitive swim team, but who still requires stroke skill development. Pre-team swimmers will work on refinement of their freestyle and backstroke, and will be introduced to breast- stroke, butterfly, starts and turns. They will participate in 2-3 pre-team meets toward the end of the season.
First time participants in the Pre-team program will also be required to take the Intermediate level swimming lessons concurrently with pre-team. Program fee is $90, which includes a team t-shirt and 2-3 pre-team meets.
