The Illini Swim Club is a co-ed competitive swim club entirely run by students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for undergraduate and graduate students. We practice 4 times a week during the fall and spring semesters and we compete against teams both regionally and nationally. Since our inception in Fall 2009, we have consistently been ranked as one of the top collegiate club teams in the nation.
At the beginning of every fall semester, the Illini Swim Club hosts two rounds of tryouts to recruit new members. Those who make the team are essentially guaranteed a spot on the roster for the remainder of their University of Illinois career (pending their attendance record). As such, the amount of new members we accept each year varies.
