Service Hour Commitment

The Service Hour Commitment does not apply to swimmers participating in the High School Season Only.

Kraken Swimming counts on its members to volunteer their time to promote unity and to enable the club to thrive by hosting successful events. For this reason, each family participating in the USA Swimming Season is required to complete a total of 12 Service Hours per swimming season.

Swim meets, fundraisers and other club events have specific jobs that will qualify for Service Hours.  Jobs will be posted for each event on the team website and will be available for selection on a first come basis. Some jobs may be restricted to individuals with specific training and/or qualifications, but there is plenty of work to go around.

A family may “buy out” of their Service Hour Commitment for a total of $120 at the beginning of the USA Season.  If this option is not selected at the time of registration, accounts with insufficient Service Hours as of March 1 will be charged at the rate of $15/per hour for their unfulfilled obligation.  Accounts must be settled prior to the end of the year banquet.


Team Uniform and Swim Gear

Each swimmer will be required to purchase a team suit before October 1st to be worn for swim meets during the 2017-2018 Swimming Season.  Team suit prices will be approximately $50 for boy's suits and $70 for girl's suits. Order information will be sent via email as soon as it is available. 

Each swimmer registered for the Kraken Swimming USA Season will receive a team t-shirt and 2 team swim caps prior to our first meet. Replacement swim caps are available throughout the season at $5 per latex cap and $10 per silicone cap.

High School teams uniforms will be determined by each school.
 

Practice Gear

Swimmers are required to wear competitive one piece swim suits.  Absolutely no two piece swim suits will be permitted for girls. Jammers are recommended for boys but the racer style is also an option.  $30-$70

Competitive goggles are a must to help swimmers see under water and promote proper technique.  Absolutely no diving masks will be permitted. $10-$20

Swim Meets

For swimmers participating in the USA Swimming Season, there is an additional charge for USA Swim Meets.  The fees are set by the swim team hosting the meet but will typically cost ~$15-$25 per swimmer based on the number of events for which he/she is registered.  It is mandatory that all swimmers participate in home swim meets that take place outside of the HS swimming season.  Away meets are optional.

Away meets are typically held in the Cleveland/Akron/Canton area.  Meets are held on the weekends and are broken into 2 sessions per day - typically divided by age group. Tentative Swim Meet Schedule.


Kraken Swimming Banquet

Kraken Swimming will host a banquet at the end of the USA Swimming season.  Participation is not required but is certainly encouraged to celebrate our swimmers hard work and successes.  There is no charge for swimmers, but there is a per person charge to cover the cost of food for all others who wish to attend.

 

Kraken Swim-A-Thon

The Swim A Thon is the one and ONLY fundraiser for Kraken Swimming.  This fundraiser is OPTIONAL but encouraged.  Each swimmer will raise $100 in pledges. This helps pay for the end of the year banquet, and fun the Kraken Scholarship. Those who help raise funds can apply for the scholarship, those who do not participate, will not be able to participate in winning the Kraken Scholarship.
