Iron Athelte Progress Report
You may notice that this report looks a little different than previous ones. This one has been pulled from the computer and is more accurate. Highlighted are the requirements for each age group. If your child's name is highlighted in yellow they have achieve their iron athlete. If your child's name is highlighted in purple, they have achieved their iron athlete, but have since aged up so have been placed in their new age group.
This report includes all meets that DC Wave has participated in since the beginning of the season, and times from other USA Swimming sanctioned meets which you may have gone to without DC Wave.
Please note if you have yet to participate in any swim meets, your name will NOT appear on the Iron Athlete Report.
We have been experiencing issues with our attendance reports and will not be posting an attendance report. If you are curious about your child's attendance percentage, we encourage you to check the OnDeck app or online under your membership.
Priority Group 1: This group includes swimmers who have attended 60% or more of their scheduled practices and have met the swim meet requirement of at least 3 swim meets. This group will get to register first. Registration for this group generally opens up mid-summer.
Priority Group 2: This group includes swimmers who have an attendance percentage between 40%-59% and have met the swim meet requirement of at least 3 swim meets. This group gets to register after our tryout period. There is no guarantee of spots, however historically we have had room in most groups.
Priority Group 3: This group includes swimmers who have an attendance percentage of 39% or less and/or have not met the swim meet requirement of at least 3 swim meets. If you have a high attendance percentage, but have participated in less than 3 swim meets, you will be placed in this group. This group will be the last to register with no guarantee of spots. Registration for this group opens up generally around the end of September.
Excused Absence Policy
Excused absences are only granted for medical illness and injury, health related issues, or family emergencies. These must be communicated to your child's primary Coach in advance or within 24 hours of the missed workout(s).
Academic or other extracurricular conflicts are not granted as an excused absence.
If your child has a pro-longed injury, such as a broken bone, we do ask for a doctor's note and to keep your Coach(es) updated throughout the recovery if looked for excused absences for the entire period.
If you child has a cronic health issue, we ask that you send us a doctor's note explaining the situation, and communicate with us in advance or within 24 hours of when your child will be absent due to those conditions.
