We have some great news! Starting this school year (2018 – 2019), ACA will have its first official swim team! The official ACA Swim Team is open to all interested 9th-12th graders, and 8th grade students will be allowed to “swim up” and compete on the JV team if they are interested.
We need a minimum of 10 high school swimmers in order to compete in the GHSA meets. The high school swim season runs mid-October, 2018 through mid-February, 2019.
The exact details of the practices and location have yet to be determined, but given our new relationship with the YMCA, Mr. Reed is working with them to have swim practices at the YMCA in the afternoon. We still have several details to confirm, but if your 8th – 12th grade child is interested in swimming for the ACA swim team, please e-mail Elizabeth Yates by August 10 or earlier.
What about our younger interested swimmers, you ask? All interested 5th – 8th graders will be able to participate in an ACA swim club through the Junior Cavs program at the YMCA. Again, please e-mail Elizabeth Yates by August 10 (or earlier) if your 5th – 8th grader is interested in the Jr. Cavs swim program through the YMCA.
Once we have a head count of interested swimmers in all 5th – 12th grades, and we have more details regarding practice days, times, location, transportation and cost, we will be back in touch.
Thanks so much for your interest and support!
Mr. Reed and Mrs. Yates
