We finally have some plans for the upcoming swim team this summer. There is a lot of information in this, but should answer all of your questions.
JUNIOR TEAM: We will be having a junior team this year. Your swimmer should be able to swim, this is not a substitute for swim lessons!! This team is just for the child who may not be able to swim the full 25 meters across the pool, however they should be able to swim at least ½ of that. Once your child can swim a full 25 meters, they can move mid-season to join the Makos swim team and participate in a swim meet.

*In order to receive the multiple children discount please register all of your children 14 and under in one transaction. If you have a 15-18 year old child, please see next bullet.
- If you have a 15-18 year old child and you are registering a child under the age of 14 too, then please do the transaction separately as you should not be getting the discount on the child under the age of 14 as the discount will be with your 15-18 year old child.
- If you have multiple children that are in the 15-18 year old age group then please do each of those transactions separately as well so you do not receive the multiple child discount, again the discount is already taken with the older children.
- If you have questions regarding the discounts please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org
