Georgetown Country Club (Georgetown) competes in the Washtenaw Interclub Swim Conference (WISC) that focuses on teaching kids ages 8 to 17 about competitive swimming while preserving the fun that goes along with this great sport.
Georgetown’s coaching staff is comprised of highly skilled and trained aquatics professionals who create a team environment that nurtures our swimmers and keeps them coming back year after year.
The team practices five days a week and workout groups are established by age and ability. Placement in our swimming groups is determined by the swimmer’s skill in the four competitive strokes:
Each group emphasizes a different level of skill development. A good measure of your child’s readiness for the team is if they can swim one length of the pool unassisted. Children who are beyond needing basic swim instruction, but still lack the swim skills necessary to succeed on the Swim Team should plan to join the Penguin Development Team (TBD for 2021).
We understand summer schedules vary and families take vacations. As such, the Swim Team operates on a flexible attendance policy—your “penguin’s” practice attendance does not dictate their participation in competitive meets. Our goal is for each team member to participate in three races at each competitive event. If we run into issues with the numbers, perhaps an absent kiddo participates in two races instead of three, but they will compete.
Please note: per WISC rules, swim team participation is open to Club members only. Junior memberships do qualify.
