Parents Assistance

Parents’ assistance at swim meets and championship is required. Six time-keepers are needed from each team at every meet.

Participants must swim in two meets in order to qualify to swim in the championship.  A parent meeting will be held May 30th, 2018 @ 5:30p.m. at the pavilion by the city pool. 

Swim Team or Swim Lessons?
Swim team is a competitive swimming sport, not swim lessons. Please use good judgment on your child’s ability as to whether he/she is capable of participating. After a swim evaluation by the coaches which entails swimming one distinguishable stroke 25 meters without assistance or stopping on the first day of practice, it may be recommended that your child enroll in swim lessons.
