We will have an informational swim team meeting on Monday, October 28th at 6:00 pm at Cary Grove High School in the Media Center. All swimmers interested in swimming should attend. New parents should attend as well, but all are welcome. Here is the general information:
The season starts with tryouts on Nov 25th at the Sage YMCA from 2:30-4:30 pm. We train Monday-Friday from that time for the majority of the season and it goes until Feb 29th. Swimmers should have early release from school 9th hour provided they have study hall as their 9th-hour class. If they have a class 9th hour, please see your counselors and see if it is possible to get a 9th-hour study hall for 2nd semester. All transportation from the schools to the Sage YMCA is your responsibility. Many of the upperclassmen can drive and can form carpools. We can have the swimmers break up by schools at the meeting to exchange phone numbers. Some parents may need to offer carpools as well.
No practice on Nov 28th, Dec 24th, 25th, 31st, and Jan 1st.
Everyone needs to register online to be eligible to swim on Nov 25th. The link is below. All parents will need to fill a YMCA waiver for their athletes. It is attached below. Please bring these to the meeting on Nov 25th.
Due to limited lane space, we are looking at taking 42-46 swimmers. It is a competitive team. All are encouraged to give it a try. We will be looking at swimmers' ability to swim sets and collecting times to fill line-ups.
Expectations: Are to be at all practices and meets, work hard, and to be respectful. If swimmers miss practices they will be swimming less at meets to allow others to compete.
