Learn, grow, and have fun swimming with our outstanding organization!
Five SAL Dual meets are held on Saturdays in November and December. Teams compete as either boys’ or girls’ teams. If the team that your child is on is home, warm-ups begin at 12:15 PM with a 1 PM start. Meets generally last approximately 2 ½ hours. If your child participates in a minimum of two of these meets, he/ she is eligible for two post-season Championship Saturday dual meets in January along with a final individual championship meet at the end of January. All of these meets are included in your membership fee.
In order to run these meets, we require all parents to volunteer to assist with the meets. There is an understanding they are learn on the job positions so there is no pressure to be perfect! We collect a $100 volunteer fee at the beginning of the season and refund at the end of the season if the volunteer requirement has been satisfied. Further details on volunteer positions can be found here.
In addition to the above dual meet competition opportunities, there are several individual SAL Invitationals held throughout the season. Anyone can sign-up for these meets. They do not count towards your dual meet minimum for championship eligibility. However, the times do! These meets have an individual cost.
We also offer the option of becoming a USA swimmer. USA swimmers swim a longer season that runs into the month of March and they swim in Invitational type meets hosted by clubs in the PA/NJ area. Swimmers work to qualify for championship meets such as Junior Olympics.
