Team News:  

Call for the Class of 2022

We will again be featuring out Class of 2022 on all our media platforms. If you are a high school senior please submit a brief bio including the number of years you have been with TIBU, if your plan includes college athletics and what school you have decided to attend. We will post it on our instagram, facebook and on the TIBU website. We will also be submitting our graduate list to Potomac Valley to be posted on the PVS website.  

Team Equipment:

A list of the all the required equipment can be  found here.  There are several swimmers that continue to forget or do not have the necessary equipment to successfully complete practices. It is also highly recomended that all equipment be labeled. With most equipment being similar, labeling will ensure that your athlete can find their equipment.

SafeSport Training:

As a SafeSport recognized team we encourage all our families (athletes & parents) to take part in the SafeSport training that USA-Swimming provides. Please use this link to get more information about SafeSport 


Despite our winter training break there have still be COVID positive cases around the team. While the number of cases are low It is very important that we continue to be mindful of the ongoing pandemic and follow TIBU COVID protocols and masking rules. It is our hope to continue to offer uninterrupted practices during the month of January, but we need everyone to do their part to ensure the saftey of our swimmers and families.  We have started our split lane scenario from 2020 as a way to mitigate any possible exposures and will continue to do so until we feel this spike has gotten under control. We have a short video on our Facebook page illustrating the lane breakdown.
