Now for the nitty gritty……

New swimmers must pass a swim evaluation. We expect your child to enter the water without coaxing from a parent (either in or out of the water), to swim according to their age goals (see chart below), and to take instruction well.  A swim team is very different from lessons--children must be able to take care of themselves in a large group setting.

FEES: No money is due now.  You'll pay after your child passes the swim evaluation.   A team swimsuit is also required for an extra fee at the team meeting.

VOLUNTEER WORK:  Every family on the team is required to work at swim meets. Sign-ups for these jobs will be coming very soon!

MEET DECLARATIONS:  We're also planning to have at least one dual meet (with Del Prado) but there's a possibility for more. A couple of our league teams are unprepared for this and won't be available, so we'll set up meets on a case by case basis

PRACTICES: Practices will begin Tuesday, June 1, and conclude July 23. They will be held in the morning Monday to Friday. Location will be announced soon but will be local.

SOCIAL EVENTS:  The Sharks hold fun events throughout the summer and these daily and weekly events are available to swimmers, their parents and siblings.

Evaluation goals by Age Group (the child’s age on June 1):

6 & under:  Enter the water unassisted and swim one length (25yds) of freestyle.  Show backstroke.

7/8:  25yds (one pool length) of Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke.  Knowledge of Butterfly is preferred, but not required.

9/10:  50yds Freestyle & 25yds of Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly.  Swimmer is timed.

11 & up:  50yds of all four strokes.  Racing dive.  Swimmer is timed.

We look forward to having you join the Pleasanton Meadows Swim Team and are excited for another great season!
