SWIM LESSONS AND SWIM TEAM PRACTICE:


IT IS RECOMMENED TO ATTEND AT LEAST 3X'S WEEKLY IN ORDER TO MASTER SWIM SKILLS.


Our goal is for each child to learn optimal swim skills. Discipline will be strictly enforced. If a child is disruptive during


practice, a timeout discipline will be enforced. Safety for all children is our main concern. Parents are required to pick up


children after practice. COACHES ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR CHILDREN AFTER PRACTICE.


PARENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO ATTEND AND ASSIST WITH VARIOUS JOBS DURING SWIM MEETS. The


coaches will contact you prior to meets to discuss job options. The meets will run more smoothly with your assistance. If


possible, please notify one of the coaches if your child is unable to attend a meet so we will not schedule them on a relay


team. The meets are held on Tuesday evenings approximately 5:00 and generally last 3 hours. If your child has transportation


problems ,please notify one of the coaches to assist you and your child with this need. Participation in the meets is encouraged


but not mandatory. Each child is encouraged to swim a variety of strokes. This is to enhance individual improvement


and team competiveness. We must accumulate times on each child's individual strokes prior to Championships.
