We will be moving to the area later this spring. I have a 7-yr-old son who is on a "junior" swim team (a swim team that is only mildly competitive...mostly focused on skill-building/having fun for 'young-uns').

He absolutely loves it and doesn't want to miss a beat (or should that be stroke ) when we move.

Can anyone recommend a swim team/coach?

We have narrowed down our house search to three houses, all in the west or sw Raleigh area or east Cary, if that helps.

Thanks in advance!

TAC in Cary has a swim team, but I believe they might have a waiting list. A great facility.

Triangle Aquatic Center (TAC): Public aquatic facilities in Wake County

Also check the YMCA in Cary.

I heard through the grapevine that TAC is starting a new team this summer within the TSA (the torpedos or tornados or something like that). I am not sure the info has even been released yet (I have a friend who is on the board).
Luckily for you, TAC is in east Cary and is very convenient, so I'm sure you can find something there! I don't know when you are moving down, but in the early spring, most of the year round competitive teams have mini-sessions aimed at summer competitive league swimmers who are rusty. I just got an email from Raleigh Swim Association about theirs. They're reallyy good for stroke clinics and will give you a chance to try out a team and see if you like it with no committment.
Another option would be to join a summer swim club with a competitive team. These are usually much more laid back than YR swim teams without the committment (which can be huge). East Cary has several summer clubs you could look into depending on what part of town you move to. Cary Swim Club is one (I'm a member there and partial to the club) but there are LOTS of them!

Default Thanks for the great information...

I've bookmarked TAC, Raleigh Swim Club & Cary Swim Club for use when we are a little closer to the move.

My son lives for swimming (I used to think "I'm so glad he's not into soccer...it's too much of a time commitment"...little did I know that swimming is worse!!!! ), and I want to make the move as seamless as possible for him in this area.

Thanks again for the responses!
