All swimmers and divers will have to qualify for the team. No one is guaranteed placement on the team, swimming or diving in a certain number of events or receiving a letter. The team will be selected by October 18, 2017, and put on the web site.
Swimmers must have basic skills of swimming all 4 strokes to make the team. Swimmers will be asked to complete 200 yard freestyle (under 3 minutes), and other strokes as requested by coach. All strokes must be legal. Swimmers must know how to do a racing dive and a flip turn. Swimmers who do not meet the minimum requirements will be ineligible for the Swim Team. Divers need to be able to complete dives from the 6 different categories. All swimmers will need to participate in tryouts, regardless of past accomplishments.
The Booster Club fee is reviewed and determined each year. For the 2017-2018 season, the Swim Team fee will be $345 and the Dive Team fee $295. There will be an additional fee for the team swim suit. Dive practices are held separately and are an additional fee. Every athlete will receive a swim cap, a team t-shirt, and new team members also receive team pants and team jacket as part of the registration fee. The fee will also cover the pool rental for swim practices, entry fees for all swim and dive meets, officials’ fees, food/snacks, awards, and other team expenses.
After the roster is named there will be no refund of fees for any reason at any time during the season.
