Covid Update

Beginning Monday, June 1st, our YMCA reopened its indoor pools as part of phase 2 in NC's reopening plans. We recently resumed our Cape Fear Aquatic Club swim practices following new safety guidelines provided by our local health department. We ask swimmers and parents to arrive 30 minutes prior to swim start to account for our new screening procedures. During phase 2, locker rooms will not be open for changing/showering. Please come ready to swim. Prior to entering the water, swimmers will be directed to rinse off using the cold water showers on deck. 

At this time swim sessions will be limited to 24 swimmers (4 swimmers per lane) to minimize contact with others. More information on our safety guidelines and procedures will be provided to parents and athletes by Coach Scott.

Blue 1
This is our introductory level to CFAC. Swimmers will develop all four competitive strokes, starts and turns, and basic swimming knowledge. Stroke construction and technique are emphasized. 

Blue 2 
Swimmers will refine and perfect stroke technique and introduce basic drilling. The athlete will also learn basic practice etiquette and procedure. 

Swimmers will become technically proficient in all 4 strokes, learn racing starts, turns, underwater techniques and begin developing aerobic endurance. 

Swimmers will continue to advance their technique as well as being introduced to conditioning. This group is the precursor to the higher level of training and competition.

Swimmers focus on conditioning while still maintaining a focus on technical proficiency.  Swimmers will learn how to properly apply technique into a training atmosphere and approach a swim season with both practice and competition goals.

This is our most advanced group here at CFAC. Swimmers from this group are competing at the state championship level or higher.
