We look forward to working with you and your children throughout the 2017-2018 swim team season.
The Arrows are a competitive swimming team that balances the goals of the beginner and serious athletes alike, with an environment that promotes youth development, healthy living and social responsibility.

Swimmers must be able to swim 1 lap for freestyle with rotary breathing, 1 lap backstroke, and 1 lap breaststroke.
The AAY Arrows divide the team up groups based on age and/or swimming ability. This is done so our coaches can provide the best education and exercises for all of our swimmers.
This year our team will host placement days. This is not considered a try out as there will be a place for all children who meet the minimum swimming requirements. The placement days will be held on;
Monday, September 11th: 6:00-8:00pm

We provide practices Monday-Friday. (Please see appropriate group for practice times on the practice schedule). Once the season begins your child may be invited to participate in “Development Days”. This special practice is held on Saturday Mornings. This smaller practice is by coach’s invite so swimmers can work on specific skills in small groups.
