TAZ Team Info 2013
All swimmers ages 4-18 (age as of June 15, 2013), are welcome to join the Taz Swim Team. The swim season runs from April 29, 2013, through July 28, 2013. Practice is held at the El Dorado Hills CSD Monday through Friday. Swimmers are not required to practice five days a week, however it is strongly encouraged. A minimum of three practices the week before a meet is required in order to participate in that meet. Swim meets are held Saturday mornings in June and July, with one bye weekend (4th of July weekend). It takes MANY parents to run a swim meet, therefore, each family must fulfill volunteer commitment hours in order for a swimmer to participate (click the Parent Volunteer Program button, for details).
The TAZ swim team is committed to the belief that age group swimming is an exciting and worthwhile recreational experience to the swimmers and their families. Our highly qualified coaching staff teaches competitive swimming techniques to participants of all ages and abilities. The club’s recreational experience is based on the following three elements:
Though competition is an important element of our program, the club places the highest value on participation and enjoyment of swimming as a lifelong activity.
Creation of a positive team oriented, learning, environment where each swimmer will strive to reach their potential by developing and refining necessary skills.
The swim training will challenge all who participate, but will do so in safe and fun environment.
The TAZ participate with the Suburban Swim League (SSL) in the mission of providing rewarding, recreational swimming programs in member club communities.
