Anoka Aquatic Center Exceptional Swimmers, “AACES”, was started by Coach Nick Hedman, who coached the program for 2 successful seasons. The program will now be coached by Bethany Urbaniak, who has had many years of experience swimming and coaching, including coaching for the Anoka High School Girls’ team.
The mission of the program is to guide, nurture, and grow competitive swimmers.
This program is for competitive swimmers (currently on a swim team, or striving to make a swim team) who have knowledge of the four competitive strokes; freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly. This program will involve a mix of training groups, with some days devoted exclusively to training, some days dedicated to technique work, and some days with a mixture of both.
The goal is to provide, as much one-on-one coaching as possible, and management will add coaches as registration demands. Program fees below are inclusive of pool time, staffing, and gear needed.
Practice will occur Monday – Thursday from 7:00 am – 9:00 am for those competitive swimmers ages 14 - 18, and from 7:30 am - 9:00 am for those ages 10-13. Practice will still take place in the rain. If there is lightning, swimmers will not be in the water, but rather will watch stroke videos and discuss technique indoors.
2023 Season: June 12 - August 10, 2023 Ages 14 - 18: 7:00 am - 9:00 am $250/swimmer Ages 10 - 13: 7:30 am - 9:00 am $200/swimmer
