Nassau Swim Team has existed for over 40 years with a long tradition of balancing fun and learning in a supportive team environment. Our program runs from June to the end of July and is open to swimmers of all skill levels. The coaches focus on improving the abilities of each swimmer while promoting spirit, respect, and good sportsmanship among the team.Swimmers must be between the ages of 4-18 on June 1. No previous experience is required but swimmers should be able to swim one length of the pool. Nassau is a Division II member of PASDA (Princeton Area Swim and Dive Association) and competes against other Division II teams in the area. The season includes social and charitable activities such as an intersquad fun meet, a swim-a-thon and a team picnic.
Swim meets require the assistance of parent volunteers. All parents are asked to work at least 4 or more meets. Volunteer Requirements
