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), University Swim Club 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 mandatory parent meeting on Wednesday, May 25 at 7:00 pm at the AJCC Pool. The meeting will include GKAISA Concussion 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.
Parking Passes for the UT Student Aquatic Center lot will be available on the first day of practice. You may purchase one at the first practice for $31.00 (which is half-off the summer price and less than the cost of a parking ticket). Passes will only be available for purchase on Monday, May 23 and Tuesday, May 24. If you do not purchase during this time, you may purchase a summer pass at Parking Services.
Team suits are available for purchase at Swim and Tri in Bearden. This year's suit is the Speedo Quark (same as last year for USC swimmers). We will also be scheduling a fitting at the AJCC in the next couple of weeks.
Swim and Tri also will have our new team towels, which are a really cool microfiber. They can be purchased from Swim and Tri at the suit fitting at the AJCC.
We are having orange silicone caps printed with our new logo. Please note that we use silicone caps because Coach Joe is very allergic to latex. Cost will be between $12-15 per cap and will be available prior to the start of the season.
