Swim League

Join the fun-filled, learning & competitive season with the Vanderbilt Recreational and Wellness Center Acorn Swim Team!

Team Goal

The goal of the Acorns swim team is to offer Nashville youth the opportunity to improve existing swimming skills and learn the value of being on a team. Main areas of emphasis include enhancing community, teaching and encouraging sportsmanship, and creating a fun-filled yet competitive swim experience for participants and families. Youth who are 4-18 years of age and can swim one length of the pool in any stroke before August 1st are eligible to swim this fall season.

(NOTE: Any swimmer will be allowed to hold onto the side of pool or lane line floats; however, swimmers will not be allowed to pull themselves forward or touch the bottom of the pool.)

Registration fees primarily cover the coaches’ salaries with fund-raising providing most of the balance of the operational costs for a given swim season. Our goal is to be financially responsible. Dues for the 2015 Swim Season are $165 per swimmer which includes a $50 deposit. Please note that the above amount does not include the cost of the team swimsuit or swim cap, which will be purchased separately.
