Westboro Tennis and Swim Club has a series of year round competitive swim programs for your child. Before embarking on team placement, you should contact either Brian Doherty or Karen Terry in order to have your child evaluated and placed appropriately. Complete dates and pricing of our swim teams can be found in the seasonal brochure (look under aquatics programs for more info). Here is a brief outline of the recreational programs we have for children. If your child is more advanced, they may also try out for our USA Swim Team.
Raiders Prep Clinic: (Rolling)
This program is geared towards those swimmers who have never participated on a swim team. This program will introduce the swimmer to swim team strokes and all aspects of swim team experiences prior to our winter swim season. Participants must be Red Cross level 4 swimming ability or higher
Fall Swim Team (September – November)
The philosophy for the Raiders Fall Swim Team is to first perfect stroke technique in order to heighten the swimmer’s awareness in the water. Once the swimmer understands the principles involved, he/she will naturally increase speed and endurance. Training with this type of a “fluid mechanics” program will also mentally prepare swimmers to “swim smart” at meets.
Winter Swim Team (November – March)
The same philosophy will be followed throughout the Winter Season. Each swimmer will compete in 8 or 9 dual meets through the winter season, plus a Championship Meet. Each meet is a dual meet. Meet dates and times are TBA. Each swimmer will receive a handbook after registration for The Teams. Parents will have an opportunity to apply for different practice times as listed in our current brochure. Every effort will be made to accommodate requests and to group siblings at similar times, however space is limited, so early signup is recommended for those that require specific times.
Spring Swim Team (April – May)
Similar to our Fall Team
Pre-Summer Clinic and Prep (June)
Designed to give swimmers an early start to summer team (clinic) or prepare swimmers for their first team experience (Prep)
Summer Swim Team (July – August)
