Mark Your Calendar: 

  • Southwest Swim Club will be holding swim tryouts for the 2021-22 Fall/Winter season on Monday, September 20, from 6:30-7:30pm at the Southwest Minnesota State University swim pool.  Swimmers only need to bring a swimsuit, towel, and googles.  When you arrive, you can enter SMSU from the door located between the BA and PE buildings (BA/PE link) and walk through your respective locker room to get to the pool.  From a COVID perspective, masks are currently required in ALL SMSU buildings.  If you are unable to attend on that date, we can arrange an alternative tryout date/time as well. 
  • Regular season practices begin on Tuesday, September 21, from 6:30-8pm.  Practice times are listed below.  For returning swimmers, please come at the time for your practice group you were in last season unless Coach Connie has mentioned to you otherwise.  NOTE:  We have a smaller window for the pool in the Fall due to SMSU Womens Swim & Dive and MHS Girls Swim & Dive.   Practice times will change after Thanksgiving.

SSC Practice Schedule.  SSC will NOT have practice on Tuesday, September 28, as the MHS Swim and Dive team will host Willmar that night at the SMSU Pool.  ROCK THE POOL TIGERS!!!
