Aquatics - Elgin Cyclones

Elgin Cyclones Swim Team

Are you looking for a competitive team to further your swimming career? Or are you looking for a fun way to learn the sport of swimming? If you answered yes to either of these questions, look no further than the Elgin Cyclones Swim Team. The Cyclones are a year round competitive team that competes at the highest level of swimming and still nurtures the novice swimmer to become a great swimmer. Summer registration is currently underway. The season lasts until late July depending on time standards and qualifying times. All Cyclones must join USA Swimming. A new parent orientation will be held on March 21 from 9-11 am at The Centre of Elgin in the West Conference Room. Team evaluations will be held on April 4 from 10:00am – noon at The Centre of Elgin. Swimmers new to the Cyclones who have not been previously evaluated by a member of our coaching staff should bring suit, goggles, and a cap so that they can be evaluated and placed in the appropriate workout group. Cyclones Swim Academy Cyclone Swim Academy is a training ground for swimmers who want to learn the basic skills necessary for competition – namely, legal competitive stroke techniques, competition turns and starts, and what it means to be a good teammate. The minimum requirements to pass an evaluation to train with the CSA group are: classroom behavior, desire to join the Cyclones, complete comfort in deep water, 25 yards swimming freestyle with rhythmic breathing skills and 25 yards backstroke – both swims must be non-stop. A practice meet with prizes for all participants will be held during each 10-week session to give CSA swimmers a beginner’s sense of what’s expected at a big meet. Swimmers and parents are expected to participate as full team members. All swimmers must join Illinois Swimming at the time of registration. Advancement to Bronze Group is wholly the decision of the Bronze Coach, based upon skill proficiency and other considerations specific to the Bronze Training Group. Length:

If they fail to get their practice attendance back to the required percentage they will be placed in the Gold Group for the remainder of the swim season with an opportunity to return the following season. This group is seen as a privilege and is expected to be held at a higher standard, it should in return be treated as one. For any questions please email the lead coach Elizabeth Skerke at coach_elizabeth@ elgincyclones.com. Required Equipment for Platinum: Fins, Pull Buoy (Proportionate size to swimmer), Large Water Bottle (For Daily Practices) and Paddles. Fee:

These swimmers should have solid overall swimming technique and be capable of competing any stroke at any competitive distance. Seniors will have dry-land training at least 2 days per week.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Throughout the course of our training, you will be introduced to Brazilian Jiu Jiu Jitsu. What makes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu unique is that it focuses on leverage and proper technique as opposed to strength. In a self-defense situation, this will help neutralize a larger, stronger attacker and will enable a smaller person to successfully defend himself or herself against a bigger person. Moreover, Jiu Jitsu is a system of self-defense that teaches students how to throw and fall properly, as well as how to perform and defend against joint locks, chokes, and other submission techniques.

Learning about teamwork and sportsmanship is a large part of each program. DL Junior Parent and Tot

Jr Flag Football

This program gives you and your child an opportunity to bond and have fun together while learning a variety of sports. This class is great for improving simple motor skills such as catching, throwing, batting, shooting, passing, running and really helps in developing hand eye coordination. Parents participate with the child as we play soccer, basketball, hockey, t-ball, football and other sports.

Junior Super Sports

Come indoors and enjoy the football season without getting too cold. This class is designed to teach and enhance the skills of our future stars. Proper techniques on passing, receiving, blocking, and kicking will be covered. Breakdown of offensive and defensive strategies will also be covered. Teamwork and positive play are highly stressed, but our main objective is to have fun. Equipment: Knee pads and elbow pads

This is for the all around athlete or for a child who wants to take a shot at different sports. Stay active and work on balance, motor skills, and hand eye coordination all while learning the rules of baseball, football, floor hockey, soccer, basketball, and more. We will focus on a new sport each class and work on basic rules and mechanics all while we play games.

We will cover simple foot skills, dribbling, passing, shooting, basic rules, and work on spreading the field.

Refreshments and popcorn are sold by local not-for-profits. Don’t forget your dancing shoes! June 16th – The Hat Guys The Hat Guys have been entertaining audiences in Chicago since 2003, bringing to the Chicago cover band scene a taste of the soulful exuberance, pagentry and revelry of a New Orleans Mardi Gras parade. This band of working professionals started out with the simple goal of keeping music in their lives, playing about 35-40 shows per year. Chicago audiences quickly embraced the band’s irrepressible fervor and distinctive style and, to satisfy the demand, The Hat Guys have been playing more than 70 shows per year since 2005. That is about the most we can handle given the substantial demands of our personal and professional lives. July 23rd – Bopology From the swingin’40’s to the 21st century, that easily-identifiable feeling we call “swing” is made even more appealing by Bopology, a renowned band from Chicago, Illinois. This multi-talented, sixpiece band’s history speaks for itself. Established in 1992 and honed in Chicago, Bopology was playing swing before swing was cool. Featured on WTTW’s “Wild Chicago,” the band boasts a lineup of well-known musicians who create an atmosphere that fuses music and dance together for any size crowd, perfect for all ages. July 7th – Denny Diamond/The Diamond Trio Band The Diamond Trio Band is a tribute to the music of Neil Diamond. The trio’s performance is not based on sparkly shirts or concert versions of songs, but rather Neil’s words and music. The songs that make up the set-list are not just those songs that charted in the top 100, but encompass Neil Diamond’s vast library of work. July 14th – Mason Rivers A high-energy country band that covers the best of today’s country music as well as your favorite classics, Mason Rivers was formed from some of the finest musical talent in the Chicagoland area. Strong male and female lead vocalists and a rich diversity of musical background and skill result in an exciting sound that’s bigger than country, stronger than rock. July 22nd – Barbershoppers Enjoy one of Elgin’s own vocal a cappella groups “Minutemen of Harmony”. It won’t take you long to discover they are just a bunch of regular guys from all walks of life with one thing in common.... the love of singing in the barbershop style!
