Evaluations for the Maverick is the Fall/Winter Short Course Season 2023-2024 (September 2023 through February 2024) were held on July 12 & 18. No additional evaluations are planned at this time.

  • 8/4/23 update - no additional numbers from evaluation will be posted. In the event of an opening, we will email you directly.
    • Core 1 (9-10), Core 2 (11-12), and Core 3 (13-14) groups are at capacity.
    • There may be limited openings available for high school swimmers. Prior club or high school team experience required. Email the registrar the swimmer's name, year in school this fall, and times for consideration.
    • There may be very limited openings available for swimmers age 8 and younger (through February 2024) who have prior competitive team experience. Those coming directly from a lessons program will not be considered at this time. Email the registrar the swimmer's name, birthdate, and competitive times for consideration.

The next opportunity to join us will be Spring/Summer Long Course 2024. Swimmers joining us at that time will need to have prior competitive team experience (with the exception of our stroke clinic group for age 10 and under).


Evaluations for Fall/Winter Short Course 2024-25 are planned for July 2024 with information and signups posted in June.


Swimmers who are NEW to club (winter season) swimming will find it helpful to review the Core Group Descriptions document. Note that the Minimum Ability Requirements listed for each group are minimums. Usually the functioning ability level of the group is higher than the listed minimum. Those swimmers who do not yet have competitive team experience are encouraged to join their local neighborhood or park district teams during the summer to gain experience. This is especially helpful for swimmers age 9 and older. We do not offer a swim lessons program.

  • Families who have recently relocated to the Naperville area and are currently USA Swimming members wishing to join Maverick can contact the registrar for assistance at any time and may be accommodated on a space available basis.
  • If your swimmer is transferring from another local team, we ask that you talk to your current/former team about the reasons prompting your change before making a decision to join Maverick. We strive to be good citizen of USA Swimming and maintain our relationships with neighboring teams.

The Mission of The Maverick Swim Club is to provide the finest possible comprehensive aquatics program. 

Our philosophy of “children first, swimmers second” creates an atmosphere where children learn valuable life lessons from their experiences in a competitive swimming environment. 

We are committed to a structured, yet fun-oriented, program that provides an opportunity for swimmers to develop to their fullest potential.


The Maverick Swim Club is a USA Swimming member club that offers competitive swim team programs for Age Group and Senior swimmers from beginning to elite level competition. 

It is the goal of Maverick Swim Club to offer age-specific training geared towards challenging and developing each individual to the best of THEIR abilities. In most cases, swimmers will join Maverick after completing at least one season of recreational league swimming or other competitive swim team experience. 

There are two training seasons with separate registration, fees, and evaluation times. Swimmers may participate in the winter short course season, summer long course season, or both.

All potential new Maverick swimmers must attend a swimmer evaluation. Our coaching staff will evaluate to determine a swimmer's readiness for competitive club swimming. Group placement is at the discretion of our coaching staff.

For more information, please email us.
