As a swimmer's level of swimming ability increases so does his or her responsibility. The program is designed to encourage all swimmers to be Senior Swimming bound. As swimmers improve, this is a deep commitment that requires great effort on all parts. A swimmer has responsibilities to the team, the coach, his/her parents, and most importantly to themselves. Swimmers need to prepare themselves for 100% effort each time they come to practice. Swimmers will be required to bring specified training accessories (i.e., goggles, flippers, etc.) to workouts. It is the swimmer's responsibility to make sure that these items are properly adjusted, and that spares are readily available. Equipment adjustment and repair will not be accepted as excuse to miss part of a training session.
