Welcome to the AJCC Smokin' Salmon Swim Team

Smokin' Salmon swim team is a family-oriented program. We encourage swimmers to work toward achieving their fullest potential while supporting and encouraging their teammates.

Team spirit and camaraderie is essential to our success. We achieve success through hours of practice, support of team members, acceptance of new challenges and greater responsibility.

We provide a great coach-to-swimmer ratio to ensure that each swimmer is given the personal attention, instruction, encouragement needed to reach his/her potential. 

Smokin' Salmon swim team is open for children ages 5-18. For 2023, the fee is $250 with a $3 operational fee that will be paid toward the Swimtopia website management company. 

If you have questions about any of our programs, please call us at 690-6343.

We hope you join us for another exceptional summer of “The Most Fun Under the Sun” at the AJCC.
