Kellogg Club Swim Team

 

Learn to swim! Make a new friend! Be part of the team!

The Kellogg Club Swim Team has a rich history of being the cornerstone of the summer season at the pool. Over 85% of our children are on the swim team. For a new member this is a great way to make new friends and immerse your family in the KC culture. We are a summer program with goals to have fun, learn skills and be a team member. Our program is instructional, but we also have state and nationally ranked swimmers. 


ROUND ROBIN
2019

The Kellogg Club Swim Team is hosting this season's Round Robin competition.  This will be a major endeavor for the KC Swim Team, and we are starting to prepare to ensure a successful event!
 
The Round Robin will be held on Saturday, July 27, 2019.  Please mark your calendar.
 
At this time, we are seeking to fill Round Robin Committee Leader positions.  These volunteers will oversee one committee of the event in its entirety.  There are 12 committees, and therefore, 12 leadership positions.
 
Once the Committee Leader positions are filled, we will then seek volunteers for each respective committee accordingly.  This event will take many, many volunteers to be successful!  If you are unable to commit to a leadership position, there will be more volunteering opportunities forthcoming. 

Please click on the link below to view the Round Robin Committee Leader positions.  Note that some positions have already been filled by members who expressed interest last season.

Swim Team Registered Chaperone

A Swim Team Registered Chaperone is an adult chaperone who transports a Swim Team Member under the age of 12 years old to/from a Swim Team practice and monitors the children during the practice. Members who have children participating on the Swim Team and require a Swim Team Registered Chaperone are required to pre-register their Swim Team Registered Chaperone with the Swim Team.  

To gain entry to the Pool Area the Swim Team Member and the Registered Chaperone are to sign in with the guard on duty, and if the Registered Chaperone is on the Swim Team Registered Chaperone list, the Chaperone will be admitted free of charge to observe the Swim Team practice up to 15 minutes before and after the practice.  The Swim Team Registered Chaperone free access to the pool area is solely to accommodate transport of children under 12 years old to Swim Team practice.  Members who have Swim Team Registered Chaperones are required to advise the Chaperone of the Kellogg Club Pool Rules and Regulations.

Victoria Ratliff will be returning for her 4th season and her first season as head coach. Victoria is currently studying Psychology with a minor in Marine Science at Coastal Carolina University after graduating from Morristown High School in 2017. Victoria has been swimming competitively since she was 10 years old at the Greater Morris YMCA, Somerset Hills YMCA, and her high school varsity swim team. She is currently swimming in college and attended USA Swimming Nationals for the past 2 years.  She has also been teaching children with special needs since 6th grade through Kids2Kids and was one of the original founding board members of Kids2Kids.

Grace Miller- 1st Year Coach

Grace Miller is joining the Kellogg Club Swim Team for her first season as an assistant coach. Grace attends Morristown High School and will be a senior in the Fall. She has swum competitively for 11 years and is currently on the Morristown High School swim team, as well as a member of the Morris County Swim Club. Grace holds numerous records on these teams and this year placed first in one individual event and first in 2 relays at the NJ High School Meet of Champions.

Apprentice Coaches- We offer an apprentice program for junior coaches. These are unpaid positions.
