Each training group will have specific attendance requirements appropriate for the objectives of that group. Failure to adhere to these requirements may result in specified penalties. It is the responsibility of the swimmers and parents to familiarize themselves with the attendance policies. Unless excused by the swimmer’s coach, advanced level championship competition will be required for all swimmers who qualify to participate.
Swimmers who arrive late for training sessions and meets will be disruptive to the team, will be inadequately warmed-up, and will miss important instructions regarding the objectives of the session. In the rare situation when a late arrival is unavoidable, a note of explanation will be expected from a parent. This also applies to requests to leave a session early.
At the designated starting time, swimmers should be ready to dive into the pool or to begin stretching exercises. It will not be acceptable to be arriving at the front door. Punctuality is absolutely essential if we are to establish a distraction free training environment.
