NEW FOR 2022: THE MONTCLAIR SEAHAWKS NOW SWIM AT THE SOUTHLAKE REC ASSOCIATION, 5070 HIGGINS DRIVE, MONTCLAIR
We know there's a lot of information here for new families. Don't be shy - if you have any questions, you can contact a Seahawks board member from this page. We're happy to have you!
JOINING THE TEAM
To be on the competitive team swimmers must be 18 or younger on June 1; able to swim one length of the pool (25 yards) unassisted; and be independent in the pool for a 30-45 minute practice. New swimmers of any age must try out for the coaches before being accepted on the team. Evaluations and swimsuit sales will be held on May 31, 2022, 6-8 pm at the Southlake Recreation Association; In case of inclement weather, evaluations will be held June 1.
DEVELOPMENTAL TEAM: At the coach's discretion, swimmers who are unable to swim the 25 yards may be assigned to our developmental team. Developmental team swimmers must still be independent and be able to follow coaches' instructions. Parents should expect developmental team swimmers to "Graduate" to the the competition team and join their age group practices in 3-5 weeks. (Coach has the final say on swimmer graduations).
We have seven meets, every Saturday morning at 7am from June 11 through the Divisional meet on July 30, except for a bye week July 2. Swimmers will be asked to report between 6 and 6:30 am for warmups. We ask all swimmers attend at least two meets and the Divisional meet. We require one adult from each family (parent, grandparent, guardian or other) to work one volunteer shift per meet their child attends. A volunteer shift is one-third to one-half the meet. This requirement is typical of other summer swim teams.
All families are required to register on the team website - please register here before evaluations even if you're not certain about your swimmer's status, so we know to expect you. If you don't want to pay now, you can write a check for team fees at tryouts. You'll get access to your own private account that will enable you to view team schedules, sign up your swimmers and volunteers for swim meets, pay your fees, and manage communications from the team.
