We hope you all had a great summer break!!  The Aggie Swim Club is ready for a new season and we would like to welcome you to return!!

As of Monday, August 14th the Aggie Swim Club will move back to the TAMU Rec Center (TAMU) for novice, age group development, age group and junior/junior stars.  During the week of August 14th August 19th there will ONLY be practices at the TAMU Rec Center and NOT at the CSMS.  Please check our online practice calendar HERE for times.

As of Monday, August 21st the Aggie Swim Club will move back to our regular practice schedules at the College Station Middle School (CSMS) and at the TAMU Rec for ALL practice groups.

 Starting August 14th our coaches will be handing out letters at the entrance of the TAMU Rec Center pool to let you know which practice group your swimmer has been placed in for this new season.  The letter will also include a renewal registration form and a new service hour form for you to complete and return to us within the next 3 weeks.  Swimmers placed in either novice or age group development are encouraged to return the forms as soon as possible so you can secure your practice days and times, which will be given on a first-come, first-served basis.

Any swimmer starting back up before August 28th will have their monthly dues pro-rated to of the regular coaching dues cost.

Click HERE to see where your swimmer stacks up with time standards for the 2017 long course season.  USA Swimming publishes time standards for boys and girls by age group that can be used as a scale to gauge a swimmer's level of achievement in each event.  They are, from slowest to fastest, B, BB, A, AA, AAA & AAAA.  Trying to reach the next level in a particular event can be motivational to swimmers.
(Time standards can be found HERE and the USA Swimming searchable database can be found HERE).
