USA SWIMMING HAS CREATED A MINOR ATHLETE ABUSE PROVENTION POLICY. THE POLICY STIPULATES GUIDELINES IN WHICH ADULTS (18 AND OVER) MUST FOLLOW WHEN INTERACTING WITH MINORS (17 AND UNDER). THE POLICY IS LOCATED IN OUR TEAM HANDBOOK ON PAGE 20. IT IS ALSO AVAILABLE IN THE TEAM FORMS SECTION OF THE TEAM WEBSITE AND BELOW. ALL PARENTS, COACHES, AND SWIMMERS MUST REVIEW THE POLICY. ON THE 2019-2020 REGISTRATION FORM, A NEW SECTION WAS ADDED TO STATE THAT THE POLICY WAS REVIEWED BY ADULT AND MINOR(S) AND REQUIRES THE SIGNATURES OF ADULT AND MINOR(S).

RONIN AQUATICS will be conducting open tryouts for the swim team throughout the year. Anyone interested should contact Coach Danny Asencio at roninaquatics@gmail.com or at 973-819-2464.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS FROM RONIN!!!


The entire coaching staff at RONIN Aquatics want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah, Kwanzaa, Three Kings, and more. What I love about our team are the different backgrounds we all come from. Yet regardless of our backgrounds our common love for the sport of swimming and seeing all of our children succeed (in and out of the pool) are what binds us. Hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season with family and friends. See everyone at the pool tomorrow.

new team communication app


instateam app


We will also be using a new team communication app. We will be using the InstaTeam App. Please go to your app store and download the app. You will then create an account using an email and a password of your choosing. InstaTeam will send you an email confirming your email is valid. Open the app and press continue. You will then press the 'Add Team' button. Type 'ASEAFG' and click join (you can also look for RONIN Aquatics). Please enter both email and phone number. These will be used to send out notifications easier and faster than the Remind App. They will ideally go straight to your phone.









2019-2020 meet schedule





Tentative Meet Schedule has been emailed and posted on the team website under 'meet info' tab. Please take a minute to look and inform me as soon as you can if you are not able to attend any of the competitions. We maybe adding 1 or 2 duals meets to our schedule. Those dates and times will be posted when they are confirmed. 











sport spot (new team vendor)




We will be using Sport Spot (located 660 broad st Shrewsbury, NJ) as our team vendor from now on. They will be doing a team fitting Saturday Sept 14th at Ranney at 9am. You can purchase all of your training and racing needs (fins, paddles, snorkels, boards, team suit, caps, bags, and parka jackets) from them. They will also be housing all of our training equipment, team suit, tech suits, and caps in store as well. Just to reiterate one thing. We are a TYR sponsored swim team. We need to be completely outfitted in TYR gear. All team racing suits, caps, and tech suits must be TYR (NO EXCEPTIONS). When we are at swim meets, only RONIN team apparel will be allowed. No other team apparel (high school, summer swim team, or any other organization) will be worn at meets. We are there representing one another, parents, ourselves, and the team. We can lose our sponsorship and discounts that we receive on equipment, gear, suits, if we are not wearing TYR products. Our team suits for the females come in several strap/backings that will allow for proper support regardless of body type. At practice, swimmers are allowed to wear any suit as long as it is not another club teams apparel. We will also be going through AdPro to get our sweat shirts, t-shirts, sweat pants, team towels, and baseball hats. Order forms will be posted shortly when I receive them from either shops.  










team mentorship program




We are starting a Mentorship program at RONIN. Any swimmer in our Senior, Presenior, and Junior Elite groups looking for community service hours can achieve them by mentoring our younger swimmers in the Junior and Novice groups. Swimmers in these groups will be given the option to assist the coaches in the Novice and/or Junior group during practices. They can assist by demonstrating, relay commands from the coaches, giving positive and helpful reinforcement, and be roles models. This will allow our swimmers to interact with one another and create strong bonds. I know this will allow our team to become closer and tighter than ever before. The same fun and love many of our swimmers experience during the summers on there summer rec teams will be achieved with this program. Any questions or concerns, please let me know and we will go from there.
