Our clinic program is offered to swimmers looking for a more competitive environment and is open for children as young as 5 years of age. This program offers incredible options for swimmers who are looking for more than one lesson each week, but who are not yet ready or do not want to make the huge commitment of joining a YMCA or Club Swim program. This program allows for each family to customize a class schedule that works best for them. During the course of our clinic program swimmers will learn the necessary skills to join a higher level swim team while continuing to build endurance and master advanced techniques for competition. Swimmers will improve starts, streamlines, pullouts and flipturns for all four strokes. They will also learn how to be more efficient in their strokes, breathing techniques, and underwaters in preparation for a competitive racing environment. After successful completion of our clinic program swimmers will be confident and ready to join a competitive swim team and continue their lifelong love of aquatics.
Clinic participants will have the option to practice 1-3 times a week as well as the option to swim in on our intersquad swim team which competes once per month. Clinics are offered at both The Morristown Beard School (MBS) as well as The County College of Morris (CCM).
Our Clinic program is divided into lanes/levels, which all meet during every clinic practice. Our swimmers will begin in a Pre-Clinic, which is an introduction to swimming full lengths of the 25 yard pool. Swimmers will master both long and short axis strokes using a variety of drills and detailed technique work. The curriculum for our pre-clinic is similar to our Level 4 class within our Learn to Swim program. The main difference being that our clinic program meets in a larger class size, competitive length pool and mimics a pre-swim team atmosphere to jumpstart swimmers love and passion for higher level aquatic training.
Often drills will be performed in half laps to ensure swimmers are working on proper form. After swimmers move to our full clinic program, they will be assessed and moved into lanes for levels A, B, C, D, and E. These levels are fluid and a swimmer is moved up in level as soon as they are deemed ready by their weekly coaches. Clinic A begins at age 6, and our clinic program encompasses all swimmers up to age 18.

What is the best option for my swimmer?
In order for your swimmer to make the most progress and gain the most endurance, we suggest they swim 2-3x per week. We have priced these packages to be the most competitive because they provide the most value to your family!
What if we need to miss a day of practice?
When you sign up for clinics, you will be choosing the day/location that you want to attend most of the time. We have developed a SWAP DAY program where you can swap in to our open spaces each week if you need to miss a practice. You are eligible for a swap as long as you notify us of your absence in your regular day before the class begins! Please be sure to fill out an absence report under Member Info on our website. If NJAC misses a class due to a holiday/closure, but there are 5 weeks that month, no swap class will be necessary or offered. If missing a class means we only have 3 or less classes that month, a swap will be provided. While we cannot guarantee swaps at all class times as some may be full, there will always be some open times for swaps each week.
How does monthly billing work for this year-round program?
Our Clinics are a year-round program that is billed monthly on the 7th of the month for the next month. For example, a payment on August 7th is applied to your September tuition. If you choose to cancel your enrollment at any time, you must notify NJAC in writing by emailing your notice of cancellation to email@example.com by the 1st of the month before your card is charged on the 7th of the month. Once cards are charged on the 7th of each month, no drops will be allowed for that month. No credits can be applied towards future months.
What happens if a pool is closed for any reason?
From time to time, our competition pools will close for external swim meets. When this happens, you can schedule a swap day for any practice you have missed. Closure dates will be published the minute we get them from our pools. A monthly calendar with all of our available practices will be published and emailed so that you know which options are open gor swaps. *Our pools reserve the right to change these dates at any time due to competitive swim meets. In the event that a date is changed, we would let you know as soon as we were informed of the change.
