The Hills West Waves
Swim Team strives to help each child improve their swimming skills,
challenge their personal best, and understand the importance of
teamwork. We provide a balance between recreational and competitive
swimming in a safe, fun, and supportive community environment so
that each child learns, is challenged, gains a sense of
accomplishment, and has fun.
Swimmers must be eighteen years and under as of June 1, 2018, and
they must have the ability to swim one length of the pool (25
meters) unassisted before they can swim in a meet.
Attendance: Attendance at practice sessions
is very important. Failing to participate in practice not only
hinders the swimmer’s skill development, but it also creates
an unfair situation for those swimmers who do participate in all
practice sessions. Thus, lack of attendance and/or tardiness at
practices may result in a swimmer losing eligibility to participate
in upcoming meets. We have a very short swim season, starting with
practices on May 21st and ending with Championships on July
14th. Our end-of-the-season awards banquet will be held after
Championships on Sunday, July 15th at Valley Country Club. Please
keep these dates in mind when planning your vacations, and try to
plan around the swim season, if possible.
Parent participation: Parent participation
is mandatory for a successful swim season. This year we will be
hosting three meets, and it takes a tremendous amount of work to
host these meets successfully. The team cannot do it without your
help, and as such, each swim family is required to work at least
six (6) shifts during the regular swim season. If your child swims
in any of the post season meets (prelims, championships, and/or All
Stars), you will be required to work additional shifts at those
meets to cover the team’s obligations.
