Austin Youth Team

Austin Youth 2017

The future of anything, including our club, is in the youth we raise. The majority of our masters players are moms and dads and seeing kids enjoy this sport is important to us. The fastest growing part of our club is the youth area and we hope that your own kids will be a part of that growth.

We have a full year program for kids with multiple seasons. There are also seasonal beginner activities that we partner with the city on.

  • What is a season like?
    • We start with practices - everybody learns and trains together.
    • We also have game days - chances to play other groups.
    • We may have an away tourney in Dallas, San Antonio, or Houston too.

    • Is it too late to join?
      • We are just starting the Fall season and anybody can join at any time.
    • My child has never played and may not be the strongest swimmer.
      • This team welcomes all levels - everybody has something to learn. We suggest that your child be able to swim at least 25 yards without stopping.
    • What are the ages being accepted?
      • We are accepting boys and girls ages 7 on up.

    • Where and When are practices?
      • Practice locations can be vairiable but our primary location is at the Jewish Community Center.
      • Below is a table of locations and times for the 2017 Fall per current conditions.
