We are now a full-fledged USA swimming program, similar to many other programs around the Des Moines area.
This year, as part of their NSST registration, each swimmer will receive a USA Swimming Flex Membership.
What does this mean?
First and foremost, it provides insurance for the team and coaches.
It provides vital training for our coaching staff to help our club and your swimmers continue to grow.
A USA Swimming membership gives your swimmer access to a plethora of swimming resources and materials.
It also allows us to offer more competition opportunities to our 11 & older swimmers. This includes high level meets, meets further away, and meets in different formats (e.g., 50 meter pools, Prelim/Final meets)
What this doesn't mean:
Huge price increases. Due to the nature of our long standing relationship with Des Moines Public Schools and North High School and the ability to register for USA Swimming with a Flex membership, our prices will not drastically change.
Increased travel for competition. We will continue to offer the same high quality practice and competition to all of our athletes that we always have. Older athletes will now have the opportunity to travel to higher level meets if they would like.
