WE ARE NOT A "LEARN TO SWIM" PROGRAM. WE ARE NOT A SWIM SCHOOL. WE ARE A COMPETITIVE SWIM TEAM.
Swimmers should be able to swim a lap on their own without holding onto ropes or walls. (If you are looking for a "learn to swim" program, we can recommend many in the area.)

We are not raising our prices for the 2020 Season. And, remember, we are the only CYO swim team with 3 nights of pool time and we are the only organization that has to pay rent to practice at the Farmingdale High School Pool.
The cost is $150 per swimmer (up to 2 swimmers). A team swimsuit is included in this. Families with more than 2 swimmers will only pay an additional $10 per child. So, if you have 2 swimmers, you would play $300. If you have 3 swimmers, you would pay $310. If you have 4 swimmers, you would pay $320. If you have 5 swimmers, you would pay $330. Check or Cash ONLY. No Credit or Debit Cards. Please make all checks payable to "Maria Regina CYO Swim Team."
A Note on Equipment:
It is highly recommended that your child have more than one swimsuit. The team swimsuit should really only be used for meets, while your child should have 1 or more swimsuits for practice. Last year’s team suit can be used as a practice suit, as well. However, websites like www.swimoutlet.com and www.sportfairusa.com, not to mention stores like New Wave Sports in Massapequa Park, have very affordable practice suits. Please remember that the boys wear “Jammers.” If we’re going to be a swim team, we need to look like a swim team, and bathing suits of the backyard pool variety don’t fit that bill. And, when you buy a swim suit, please do not think about using it for future years and deliberately buying a bigger size. Too big of a suit can cause problems.
Just as you’d invest in good cleats and gloves and bats (etc.) in other sports, we’d ask that you
buy a good pair of “Competition” googles for your child. 2 pairs (“a pair and a spare”) are really
recommended as goggles have a habit of breaking at the most inopportune times. (We have had good experiences with the Speedo
Vanquisher and now they even have ones with extra peripheral vision for under 20
bucks, but there are many good brands out there like TYR and MP.) The important thing is to get away from goggles that are more fit for a backyard pool or come attached to a shirt that
Grandma bought at Kohl’s.
