2019 SWIM TEAM
The ABC Swim Team promotes fun and fitness in a friendly, semi-competitive environment. Our head coach, Rich Steckhahn, will lead our swimmers. Our team will take part in swim meets at local beach clubs, as well as host our own events at the Allenhurst Beach Club Pool. We look forward to another great season! Sign up below!
Swim team is free for ABC families. Swimmers will be expected to purchase a team swim suit as well as swim camp. Additionally, parent volunteers will be needed when we host home swim meets.
Swim team is available for all ages. Swimmers 6 and under must swim a minimum of a half-length of the pool unassisted and above water to be eligible. Children 7 and up must swim a full continuous length of the pool unassisted. Swimmers 7 and up must be able to swim freestyle and breast stroke, with knowledge of backstroke. If you are unsure, one of the swim coaches will gladly evaluate your child. Practice focuses on stroke development, endurance, and fundamentals of team swimming.
Swimmers should be prepared for practice with goggles, a swim camp (required for swimmers with hair longer than chin length), towel, suit, and a post swim snack (especially for those staying for Rec. Camp). Please make sure that all gear is labeled.
Swim meets take place on Tuesday and Thursday nights. Warmups typically begin at 5:30, with the meet starting at 6. There will be a total of 6 swim meets during the month of July. Swim meets will take place at both Allenhurst and other local beach/pool clubs. All swimmers will swim in at least two races each meet. Relay teams will be made up of the fastest swimmers in each age group.
Practices are Mondays, Wednesdays, and some Fridays from 9:00AM to 9:45AM.
