THE 2020 SWIM SEASON
The SISL board met and with great disappointment, they announced that the 2020 swim season will not be happening this year. There are some pools that have already announced they are not opening at all and other waiting for more information.
We are hoping to put something together in July, if possible.
We will keep you updated.
We will be having a Parent/Information Meeting
Location: Marion Boyscout Cabin
Time/ Date: TBD
Questions: contact Jennifer McCuan 889-5508
We will go over Volunteer opportunities, Parent requirements, SwimMeets and Invitationals,
Apparel and SwimSuits, Sponsorships and etc. This is for New and returning swim parents.
We will be having Swim Evaluations on:
At this time, all swimmers are required to swim across the pool so that they can be
evaluated. This will determine which swim practice time they receive.
The 1st official day of swim practice will be on:
Swim practices will be between 8-10am Monday-Friday.
A minimum of 3 practices a week are required. The coaches would like swimmers to practice
all 5 days. They want the swimmers to get the most out of practice.
Parent involvement is a requirement. The SwimTeam relies heavily on Parent Volunteers. We need as many parents as possible to help run a smooth Swim Meet and Invitational.
Rule of thumb: If you have a child swimming, you should sign up to work or have someone fill in for you. Parents/Volunteers of younger swimmers should sign up for 1st shift duties. More experienced swimmers Parents/Volunteers should sign up for 2nd shift (you will be there until the end of the meet anyways).
We do allow a $100 buyout. Pay the swimteam $100 to not volunteer for swim meets ONLY.
This does NOT include Invitational volunteer lists.
If you do not Volunteer or pay Buyout, your swimmer will be excused from the meet.
Safety is a BIG concern of such a large swim team. For this reason, inexperienced swimmers will have a two week time period to meet the requirements to be on the swim team. After two weeks if the swimmer has not met the requirements, they will NOT be allowed to be on the team do to safety concerns. Your registration money will be refunded. Apparel or swimsuits will NOT be refunded.
