The JCA Makos is a co-ed swim team composed of boys and girls ages 4-18. Swimmers of any level are welcome, but each swimmer must be able to swim at least one length of a 25-yard/meter pool unassisted. JCA private and group swim lessons may be recommended by our coaching staff if the swimmer’s skills are weak for his or her age group.
The JCA Makos Summer Swim Team offers an experience to swimmers and their families based upon the principles of education, the intrinsic values of sport and the benefits offered by belonging to a club team. Swimming is a family sport, requires sacrifices of time and effort of everyone in the family. All parents will have to volunteer their time to help orchestrate swim meets, team activities, getting their swimmer to and from practice, along with paying the required fees while supporting and encouraging your swimmer’s hard work.
Our JCA Makos swimmers must be willing to sacrifice their time for practices and meets, while working hard in practice to develop as a swimmer and improve their abilities. Our team concept includes sportsmanship, dedication, discipline, cooperation, team spirit, pride, goal setting, and humility. We believe these values contribute greatly to the development of a well-rounded athlete.
