Family Commitment: Time
Our swim season runs from mid-May until about the Fourth of July. While school is still in session, we hold after-school practices on Monday through Friday. We will also be offering optional skill clinics (at an additional cost) on Saturday mornings.
After the school year ends, we transition to a morning practice schedule.
We DO have practices on the days of swim meets and the day after a swim meet.
The summer swim meet season is condensed into 3-4 weeks, with meets almost every Monday and Thursday. At a Home meet, swimmers typically arrive around 4:30-5:00 for warm-ups. The actual meet begins at 6 pm and go until 9-10pm. Factors affecting the length of a swim meet are weather conditions, swimmers being "stacked" and waiting to swim their events, and volunteer participation. Without volunteers, the meet cannot go on.
We also offer several social events for swimmers and their families to participate in, most at no cost. 2019 will have events like a Season Kick-off Party, Time Trials, and the End of Season Banquet.
Family Commitment: Attendance
Summer swim leagues are fun! We hope to foster a strong team environment. While we know everyone has different vacation schedules, as well as other commitments, we hope you will be able to attend as many practices, meets, and social events as possible.
It is not necessary to alert your coach if you are going to miss a scheduled practice. However, if you cannot attend a meet (or will arrive late/leave early), we ask that you submit this information.
