Welcome to the
Amador Swim Team. This handbook covers general information that
will enable you to understand the way Amador Swim Team functions in
itself and within the Northern California Swim League. This is not
a complete list, but covers the highlights, bylaws, and policies of
both organizations. A complete list of Team and League Bylaws and
U.S. Swimming handbook can be obtained from the Team
The Amador Swim Team
(Team) was established in 1973 to provide area children the
opportunity to swim competitively. The Team is a recreational team
with primary emphasis on fun and fitness. We encourage swimming in
a manner which provides recreation, self-discipline, good
sportsmanship, and competition in the context of a "full family"
experience for the swimmers. The Team is a non-profit organization
which relies on a strong parent organization to operate the Team
and raise financial support.
We provide excellent
coaching, equipment, and facilities for as many as 200 swimmers in
Amador County. A permanent home for equipment, trophies, and
records will more firmly establish the Team as a valuable entity
worthy of community support. A long term, committed partnership
with a pool facility should allow an expansion of the rigorous
practice schedules to improve the skill levels and swimming
experience for the greatest number of swimmers. The involvement of
parents as members of the Standing Committees and the Board
together with involvement of the Amador County community are both
important to the accomplishment of our Team's goals.
Amador Swim Team is governed by a Board of Directors based on a set
of by-laws which are available on request. We are also members of
Northern California Swim League and by-laws and policies are
Voting members of the Board of Directors include President, Vice
President, Secretary, Treasurer, League Representative, Volunteer
Coordinator, Member at Large, and Computer Admin.
C. There will be at least one
general membership meeting where Team business is discussed and the
following year's Board is elected. One vote per family of a
registered swimmer is allotted for balloting.
