It is our hope that all swimmers
will come to every practice and be available for every meet - then
reality sets in. But in the meantime, it's not the end of the world
if you are going away during the season. Therefore, if your swimmer
will miss a meet, please notify the Coaches as soon as possible so
that another swimmer will get a chance to swim and the team will
not lose points.
Instead of doing "vacation
reports", we ask that you declare your availability by visiting
each of the meets on the calendar and click on the ATTEND THIS
EVENT button for each one. Once you have selected the swimmer
you are declaring for, you can choose either YES, THIS SWIMMER WILL
ATTEND or NO THIS SWIMMER WILL NOT ATTEND. You do not have to
pick specific events, just give us a yes or no! There is also
space for you to write a comment on that reply form as well if you
want to call something to the coaches' attention regarding a
particular meet (i.e. swimmer must leave by 11:30 a.m. for work, or
swimmer will be arriving late due to a medical appointment).
You can also contact
coaches directly via email from the links below.
Any e-mail addressed to COACHES@KINGFARMSWIMTEAM.COM
will reach all members of the coaching staff.
It is particularly important to
let the Coaches know if your swimmer will miss an "A" (Saturday)
meet, because the Team must send in its official roster of swimmers
by noon the day before the meet, and after this time only a very
limited number of substitutions can be made.
When swimmers don't show up
without notifying the Coaches, it hurts the team, because there
will be no swimmer for some events and it also hurts other
swimmers, who otherwise would have an opportunity to swim in that
