Age Group Program
The Greenbelt Municipal Swim Team has two programs: the Age Group program and the Developmental program. There are five age groups in the Age Group program: 8 and under, 9-10, 11-12, and 13 and above.
Children registering for the Age Group program must be at least 6 years of age, have had swim lessons or swimming experience, and must be able to swim at least one length of the pool.
All new swimmers registering for the swim team will be evaluated by one of the Age Group swim coaches to assess her or his swimming ability. Swimmers “moving up” from the Developmental Program will also be evaluated for their readiness to join the Age Group Team.
Evaluations are held at the start of the Fall, Winter/Spring, and Summer sessions. All swimmers must have a suit and be prepared to swim. Registration will follow the evaluation session. Interested parents should contact the head coach or board president for more information. (See Contact Us for more email addresses.)
The Developmental program is a “feeder program” for GMST’s Age Group program. Participants must be between the ages of 4 and 7 as of May 31st of this current year and have taken and passed a beginner’s swim program at the pool.
Participants must be able to swim 10 yards AND have the approval of the registrar.
Space in this program is very limited. Registrations will be accepted on a “first come, first served” basis. Registrations received after the class has been filled will be put on a waiting list.
