Swim team practice starts Monday June 4th!
Our goal is to promote love for the sport, improved aquatic skills, and most importantly, teach the principles of good sportsmanship. Children of all ages and skill levels are welcome.
Schedule for Mondays through Fridays:
- 6 and under 3:30
- 7-8 year olds 4:00
- 9-10 year olds: 4:30
- 11-over: 5:00
Who do I contact with questions?
Team Representative: Karen Coughlin at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to be on the email list send an email to email@example.com with “add to list” in the subject.
Practices will take place as scheduled, weather permitting. The closing of the pool is not within the discretion of the swim team but is a decision made by the pool manager/life guards. If you have any question about whether the pool is open, please call before coming to the pool. The pool number is (410)-435-0041
The decision to cancel the meet is made by the starter in consultation with the team representatives. Do NOT assume that because it is raining a meet will be canceled. Meets will held in the rain as long as there is no lightning/thunder in the immediate vicinity. If the meet is cancelled for another reason (e.g., power outage at the pool) I will send out an email as soon as possible. Swim meets are difficult to re-schedule and therefore, they will go forward despite rain or be delayed with a late start after a storm passes through.
Team suits are not required.
The swim team season starts June 4th and ends mid July. In order to get the most out of the short swim season, you should attend as many practices as your time permits.
Please try and have your swimmer arrive a few minutes early so he/she is ready to start practice on time (suit, cap (if possible) and goggles on). Your swimmer will feel more confident and less time will be wasted re-explaining instructions.

It is impossible to run a swim meet without parent participation! All parents or guardians need to volunteer in some capacity during the season. There are plenty of tasks each week and swim team can’t happen without everyone’s assistance. Running a home meet requires no fewer than 15 adults and there are many other tasks that happen behind the scenes!
Below is a list of typical tasks:
On-Deck Meet Jobs
work on deck during home and away meets
Clerk of Course and Assistants
line up swimmers in order of events and communicate with Clerk-of-Course from opposing team. This position is good for parents who are in attendance during practice and who can get to know swimmers; the Head Clerk must understand the progression of a swim meet. We especially need help with lining up little ones.
Work a stopwatch to time races and record results on the provided sheets
Run result sheets from timers to table where results are recorded
Off-Deck Meet Jobs
Work off-deck during home and away meets
Help with emails and supply orders
Assist with data entry of results and make ribbons for the
top 8 swimmers in each event at both home and away meets
(at home swim meet) – coordinate snacks for meets
Meet Set Up
Set up the pool area for home meets
Meet Clean Up
Clean up the pool area after home meets
Work is not done during swim meets
(these are good jobs for parents with very young children to take care of during meets)
End-of-the-Season Party/Awards Coordinator
Held after the championship meet.
Thanks so much in advance and here is to another great year.
