2019 Key Season Dates and Practice Times

 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.
