Are you new to the team? If so, please fill out this form for me :-) https://forms.gle/gSQuCgpnaVAmAiXWA
This page should answer many questions that I often get from Swimmers/Divers new to the team (page in progress)
Is this a cut sport? No, sometimes we have to stop letting people join late because we are full, but we do not hold "tryouts"
Can I join even if I have not swam competitively before?. Yes, this is common
What do I need to do before a can start? Fill out the Final Forms info with SC, have a sports physical on file with the school, good for 2 years, buy ASB card, pay SC sport fee,
Who do I turn paperwork into? Final Forms online, Physicals go to Mr. Bruns who is our Athletic Director, or the SC office. Fees are paid online
What do I need to bring to practice? A competitive style swim suit, and competitive Goggles, Water bottle.
Where do I buy suit and googles? online, I like swim outlet
Can I swim and dive? Yes, but it becomes a bigger commitment, Dive practice is seperate from swim practice, so you would double practice everyday.
Can I just Dive? Yes many just choose to focus on the Dive event
When are meets? Usually Tuesday and or Thursdays right after school, many away meets require early dismissal from school
Is there a Bus for practice? TBD
Is there a bus for meets? Home meets TBD/ Away meets depend on where the meet is, close meets have a one-way ride, meets that are further away have a round trip bus ride.
Can I skip practice to go to my club practice? No, a WIAA rule prevents this, you must attend school practices.
What do I do if I have to miss a practice? Contact me via email or text or the Remind app, and get it excused by me. If it is the practice before a meet, you will not participate in the meet.
