2019 Swim and Dive Information
All paperwork is due to the Athletic Office by Friday January 18, 2019. You are responsible for picking up your Ticket to Play from the Athletic Office once all your paperwork is done. You must bring your Ticket to Play to the first practice or you are not eligible to participate on the team. You can pick up your Ticket to Play on January 28-February 1 during lunch in the Athletic Office. If this is not done prior to the first day of the season, you may jeopardize being on the team. In order to participate one must have a 2.0 GPA or better; must be passing at least half the classes that you are taking (2 of 2, 2 of 3 or 3 of 4); be available for practices and meets; be available during spring break week and district recess week for practice.
The Season starts on Saturday February 2, 2019 from 3:00-5:30pm for everyone. We will meet this first day to process all the paperwork, start to conduct swim/dive tryouts, and do suit fittings and spirit packs at the pool. The suit fitting and payment for your spirit pack will be due at this time. If the first day is missed by anyone, it could jeopardize you being on the team. Regardless of the reason. All swim levels will be participating in the first stage of tryouts (time trials) February 4-15. These days will go from 5:30-7:30pm. Diving tryout dates and times coming soon.
Athlete Donation for Coaching Stipend and Invitational’s – We are asking for $50.00 per family to help offset the additional coaches’ stipend and entry fees for invitationals that we are providing. We are only given 1.5 stipends by the district and we need a minimum of 3 coaches to run a full program, but preferably 4 coaches. If everyone gave $50.00 we will still not cover 2.5 full stipends and entry fee for invitationals, but it will offset the amount we have to pay from fundraising during the swim-a-thon/dive-a-thon. Last year we spent $5000.00 in coaching stipends and $1000.00 in entry fees for invitational’s. Please show your support for the program.
Parent Information Night will be on Monday February 25th in the LPR at 6:30pm for all spring sports, and then followed by Swimming & Diving meeting only from 7:00-8:00pm.
Swimathon! Friday March 8, 2019 at RBHS from 3-530pm. Every year we must fundraise for equipment that is needed throughout the season. This fundraising also goes towards banquets, pull bouys, stop watches, kick boards, timing system equipment, backstroke flags, pace clocks, etc. If we want something for the program and the student-athletes, then we must fundraise for it. Everyone will be expected to participate with the fundraising. You will be encouraged to raise as much as possible. The goal for every athlete is to raise at least $100.00. More information will be in the handout at the first practice. This team event is mandatory and only the Head Coach can excuse anyone from this event.
