Encouraging Excellence; Facilitating Fun!
It is the policy of MAFD that all swimmers 10 years of age or younger be able to swim at least 25 yards and may be requested to do so by the coaches prior to joining the team. For swimmers 11 years of age and older, they must be able to swim a distance specified by the coaches. An annual evaluation for all new swimmers must be conducted by one of the coaches prior to starting the season.
MAFD is a team for swimmers who know how to swim and want to participate competitively; this is not a program to teach non-swimmers how to swim. All swimmers who are registered and participate in practice will be entered to swim in meets including the Blue and White Meet. MAFD and the coaches want to help your swimmer(s) swim faster and promote fair competition in a fun and wholesome environment.
