KFST 2019 Swim Season – Visit us at www.kingfarmswimteam.com
Join us on Facebook: KING FARM SCREAMIN’ GEESE
Team Suits: Available online at www.swimoutlet.com/KFST or at Cassel’s (which has moved to VA).
Any racing style suit may be worn for practice – save your team suit for meets. Pre-team is encouraged to wait on suit purchases until after evaluation acceptance!
Practice: Wear racing suit, cap, goggles, and sunscreen to practice – bring a towel & bottle of water too! On cold or rainy days when the pool is open, bring workout gear for on deck workouts (sneakers, etc.).
Website: Be sure to log into your family account and go through
the verification process for your e-mail
addresses at www.kingfarmswimteam.com.
Meet Signups: The coaches need to know which kids are in town and available for each meet. Please log into the website and go to EVENTS. Click on each meet’s “ATTEND/DECLINE” button. Select swimmer and indicate YES or NO for each meet and each child. ALL REGULAR TEAM SWIMMERS MUST DO THIS FOR EACH MEET! PRE-TEAM ONLY HAS TO DO THIS FOR 7/18/19 MINI-MEET. If a swimmer does not COMMIT to the meet, he/she will not be entered to swim. Coaches will choose the events for each swimmer. No deck entries!
Volunteers: KFST is run on volunteer power – please follow the “job signup” link on the EVENTS listed on the calendar and sign up to work at a meet or other event. Family volunteering will be carefully monitored so that full participation is verified.
Weather: Pool closures for weather and other issues are at the discretion of the pool staff, not the coaches! We will attempt to e-mail as early as possible in case of pool closures. If the weather is questionable, please check email before leaving home for practice.
