Swim + Dive + Synchro + Lessons + Lap Swim

Georgetown Country Club competes in the Washtenaw Interclub Swim Conference (WISC) which is an age-group swim and dive league with five friendly dual meets. The season ends with a week-long Championship Meet in late July. There are currently 18 teams divided into three divisions competing in WISC.

Our coaching team consists of expert aquatics professionals who foster a supportive team atmosphere, encouraging our young swimmers to return each season.

Training sessions are held five days a week, with groups organized based on age and skill level. The assignment to these groups depends on the swimmer’s proficiency in the four main competitive strokes: Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke, and Butterfly.

Each group is tailored to focus on advancing different skill sets. An indicator of a child’s readiness for our swim team is their ability to swim the length of the pool without assistance. For those who have moved past the need for basic swimming lessons but are not yet ready for the swim team, the Penguin Development Team is the recommended next step.

We acknowledge the variability of summer schedules and family vacations, which is why our Swim Team offers a flexible attendance policy. A swimmer’s practice attendance does not affect their eligibility for competitive meets, with the aim for each swimmer to participate in three races per event.

Please note: per WISC rules, swim team participation is open to Club members only. Junior memberships do qualify.
