General Club Information

The Mundelein Mustang Swim Club (MMSC) is a swim team offering competitive, stroke development, and social opportunities for children ages 6-18 in Mundelein and surrounding communities.  Children are required to be evaluated by a coach to determine their readiness for the team, and should have a desire to compete in age and ability-appropriate swim meets before joining.

As a member of USA Swimming, Inc. and Illinois Swimming, Inc., swimmers participate in sanctioned meets throughout the season.  Swimmers who achieve USA Swimming time standards are eligible, and are encouraged to compete in regional, state, zone, sectional and national level meets.

The Fall / Winter Season runs from September through March, while the Spring / Summer season runs from May through July.  Practices are conducted according to the swimmer’s ability and age, and are offered three to six days per week depending on the practice group.  There is no mandatory practice requirement, but frequent attendance is strongly encouraged and will be rewarded with greater improvement and progress by the swimmer.  Practices are conducted between the hours of 5:15-9:30 p.m. Monday through Friday as well as Saturday mornings.  Early morning practices are also offered in the summer for certain practice groups.

New swimmers must attend a coach evaluation to determine placement in to practice groups.  Swimmers should be present at the pool with a swimsuit, goggles, towel and swim cap (if needed) The evaluation is very brief.  The swimmer will typically be asked to perform a minimum of one length (25 yards) of freestyle (front crawl) and one length backstroke.  Older swimmers will be asked to perform additional strokes and distances to further determine skill and endurance.
