New Options For Verona Swim Team


Share post:

If  your kids love to swim, you’ll want to know that the Verona Wave Swim Team is taking a new approach to its programs this summer: Three separate teams, based on ability and interest in competition. In-person registration will be held on Saturday May 1, from 9 a.m. to noon, so here’s what you have to know.

First up is the Competitive Team, which will practice 5 days a week. Swimmers on this team must compete in 6 to 8 meets in the North Jersey Swim League and may be eligible to participate in Divisionals and Meet of Champions.

If your swimmer isn’t ready for that kind of competition, the Waves will be having a separate Home Team this year. The Home Team will also practice 5 days a week, but swimmers will compete in 2 to 3 home meets at the Verona Pool only and will not be eligible to compete in Divisionals and Meet of Champions.

Finally, new swimmers can get their feet wet with the Width Team. Swimmers in this group practice two days a week and participate in 15 minute swims prior to each home meet for the Competitive Team home meet.

To qualify for any of the teams, a child must be a member of the Verona Pool and must be able to swim across the pool without touching the bottom. The cost is $50 for one child and $20 for each additional child. If you can’t make the in-person registration on Saturday, you can also register online through the town’s Web site (look for the yellow and blue Recreation Online Registration logo in the bottom left corner). But either way you’ve got to register by June 1. After that, there’s a late fee of $15 for one child and $25 for others. Registrations will not be accepted at the Pool office.

For more information, see the Verona Wave Swim Team Web site or call the Recreation Department at 973-857-4830.
