This swim program flies under the radar but offers kids great value, instruction and a superior, supportive team experience. The Red Devils swim team is part of the Nassau County Municipal Swim program, a program that offers four divisions of swim meets throughout the summer.
The program usually kicks off the last week of June with try outs — for the younger kids (8 and under) they must show strength swimming the length of one lap across the pool. For older ages, kids must be able to endure two laps. As kids get older additional strokes are required.
After try outs, kids usually find out if they’ve been accepted within 48 hours and begin their daily practices the following week. Practices usually last one hour to one hour and fifteen minutes Monday through Thursday mornings, and Fridays are “Fun Fridays.” Fun Fridays involve all swimmers and are used as time to bond and play games.
The season is comprised of 6 meets and culminates with a Championship meet held at the Eisenhower Park aquatic center. There are also A, B, C and D meets throughout the season which allow kids to compete against their own times to become eligible to swim for each level.
There is great value in swimming with the Red Devils — the program usually costs around $200 plus the cost of a mandatory racing swimsuit. All in, the cost is usually less than $300 and includes daily instruction, opportunities to compete, clinics and more.
