The AJCC SMOKIN' SALMON Swim Team 

 

is a family-oriented program, encouraging swimmers to work toward achieving their fullest potential while supporting and encouraging the efforts and achievements of their teammates.

 

Essential to our success is the concept of team spirit and camaraderie strengthened through hours of practice, support of team members, mentoring opportunities for older swimmers and acceptance of new challenges and greater responsibility.

 

A member of the Greater Knoxville Area Interclub Swim Association (GKAISA), the AJCC Smokin' Salmon is open for girls and boys ages 5-18.  Swimmers are divided into age group competition levels. 

 

The AJCC Swim Team coaching staff consists of experienced, highly motivated.  We provide a low coach-to-swimmer ratio to ensure that each swimmer is given the personal attention and instruction needed to reach his/her potential. Coaches will work with swimmers during practices to ensure the swimmer is working at a level that both challenges and encourages.

 

If you have questions about any of our programs, please call us at 690-6343.

We hope you join us for another exceptional “Most Fun Under the Sun” at the AJCC.

 

Mandatory Parent Meeting

There will be a parent meeting on Wednesday, May 30 at 6:30 pm at the AJCC Pool. The meeting will include GKAISA Concussion Training, Cardiac Arrest Training and other information that is mandated by GSAISA. We will also review the USC Hazing Policy. We will also cover introductions, general questions, social events, meet schedule, team communication and volunteer opportunities.

Team Suits

Our team suit will be the TYR Phoenix Splice, which is the same suit that we used last year. Team suits are available for purchase at Swim and Tri in Bearden.

Team Towels

Swim and Tri also will have our team towels, which are microfiber and quick-dry. The design is the same as last year. They can be purchased on our website under the “Merchandise” tab at registration. NOTE: We must have a total of 24 ordered in order for them to be printed. If you order a towel and we do not have sufficient numbers ordered, we will refund your money.

Caps

We will be ordering silicone caps through Swim and Tri (same design as last year). Please note that we use silicone caps because Coach Joe is very allergic to latex. Cost for a single cap will be $15.00. We also have the option to order caps that are personalized with the swimmer’s last name. Minimum order per family is two (2), and the cost for two (2) caps is $30.00. (Both caps must have the same personalization). Personalized caps must be ordered by May 1.

Other Merchandise

We may have added the option for parents to purchase team t-shirts for $15.00 each. Please make those purchases under the “Merchandise” tab at Registration.

Again, thank you for being a part of the University Swim Club Smokin' Salmon family. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!

Congratulations 2017 Senior Swimmers!
