Team Incentives

Time Standard Incentive Program (Competition Acheivement) 

WHAT IS IT?
VSC’s Time Standard Incentive Program has been designed to reward swimmers for their hard work and dedication to swimming!  USA Swimming has established Motivational Time Standards for swimmers across the country.  When a swimmer achieves a USA Swimming time standard they will be rewarded with a patch that states their age group, stroke, distance, and the time standard achieved.  We want our swimmers to be excited to collect as many patches possible! The swimmers are encouraged to attach their carabineer to their swim bags, back packs, etc to show off their accomplishments. Swimmers can hole punch the patches and add them to the carabineer. 

HOW WILL THE PROGRAM WORK?
Once a swimmer has swam in a meet they will get a carabineer from Coach Sarah, and they will be eligible to receive a patch for each motivational time standard they achieve in their age group.  After each meet, coaches will determine what swimmers achieved new motivational times and will award the swimmers with their tags at practice.

RULES:
- In order to receive a tag, a swimmer MUST swim in meets. 

- To achieve a motivational time, a swimmer must swim at a sanctioned meet that VSC attends as a team. (Times will be considered starting from September 2016).

-Tags will be awarded by age group (10 and under, 11-12, 13-14, 15-16, 17-18) for BB, A, AA, AAA, AAAA times for the events listed below:

Coach's Pizza Party (Commitment Achievement) 

Swimmers from all groups who achieve 90% or higher attendance of the offered practices in a given month will be invited to attend the Coach's pizza party for that month. All groups will attend the pizza party together to work on team cohesion. Swimmers who meet the 90% attendance will be given a invitation to attend the party at the beginning of the next month. This is a very high standard to achieve. Swimmers who are more the 10 minutes late (or leave more then 10 minutes early) for practice will not have that practice count towards the pizza party that month. 

Caught Doing Good Cap (Character Achievement) 

Swimmers in all groups who are caught doing something above and beyond at practice have a chance to win a themed cap from their groups coach. The caps may or not be announced before practice. The caps will be holiday or seasonal themed and will be handed out at the coaches discretion. Swimmers should wear these caps with pride as they displayed exceptional character.
