PIRATE SUMMER SWIM TEAM: MAY 31 - JULY 14, 2016
Our Pirates team is a summer recreational competitive swim team. Registration is open to any swimmer (5 or older) that is able to complete 25 yards unassisted and willing to participate in a group setting. These are not swim lessons and young swimmers should not have to be coerced by an adult to participate. If your swimmers is 10 years or older, we recommend that they are able to swim a minimum of 50 yards without stopping. The coaches will introduce ALL four competitive strokes to each swimmer and will train to increase speed and endurance. This is a fun introduction to the world of competitive swimming. Although we "compete" at swim meets, FUN is still the focus and developing good stroke technique is our main focus.
Practices: Monday thru Thursday May 31th – July 14th , 2016
10 & under swim from 10am – 11am
11 & older swim from 10:45am – Noon
** We do not cancel practices due to rain. If it is thundering or lightning, we will go into the gym for dry land exercises. Please bring tennis shoes!
** We invite parents to bring chairs and observe practices from outside the fence. There will be a “No Parents on Deck” policy in place. Thank you for your cooperation.
Fees: $225 for the season for Fayette County Residents; $250 for non residents. Registration will be available online starting May 1st, 2016. There is a 10% discount for each additional family member.
Meets: All meets are optional. You must sign up for each meet you plan to attend. You may swim 2 individual events. Please place a check mark indicating the events you want to swim. If you do not want to swim, do nothing!
***Relays are made up of 4 swimmers. We will try to put all that enter in the meet on relays. Please do not leave a meet before checking with a coach to see if you are on a relay. This is very important, since we do not want to tell 3 other swimmers that they cannot swim because one person left early. Thank you.
Parents: All meets we will need volunteer timers and a stroke judge. We will put a sign up sheet on the bulletin board for volunteers to sign up. Also, the week of home meets, we will be accepting donations of bottled water to hand out to all our meet volunteers.
ONLINE REGISTRATION will be available May 2, 2016
