 A “captain” is a principal performer with commanding, responsible, authority, and influence, generally selected by his/her coaches to lead their organization. Perhaps the best candidate and the one selected may not be the fastest swimmer on the team, Three basic principles in becoming a captain are;
1. They lead by doing or get help by first pitching in and/or asking, not directing.
2. Earn the respect of teammates by demonstrating good behavior. They represent the team well in all phases of being a visible “leader”.
3. USAS- hold a year round commitment in training and competing for LMOR,
SAL- Senior in high school who has been a member of LMSD for at least one year and shows a commitment for LMSD.
IN THE WATER 
1. Try hard on swimming sets, relating practices to personal or team goals. “John let’s really work this set and break 50 seconds”.
2. Encourage skill improvement because the slowest swimmer may be the weakest link on the team; however, if motivated that swimmer will push others.
3. Challenge teammates to do their best, encouraging them when plateaus occur. “Joe I’ll challenge you to work a set and keep track of who wins the most swims.
4. Be a giver. Arrive early to lead in getting equipment in place for practice or helping the coaches get ready. Get splits or at least know what others are doing in strategy and splits.
5. Be accurate and honest in figuring and reporting interval send-offs, sets, pulses, practice times, stroke counts.
6. Lead by doing on team protocol on finishing, turning, starting, circle swimming, and never cutting corners to finish fast or look good.
7. Consistently attend, in full, year round practices offered (maintain over 80% attendance) and perform/complete all sets. Lead by example - can't lead without attending.
OUT OF THE WATER
1. Quiet confidence without being pushy.
2. Encourage sensible training habits; leading by doing. Encouraging other to get proper sleep, diet as opposed to smoking, doing drugs, drinking alcohol or staying up or out late. Lack of proper rest and abusive activity has a cumulatively negative effect on personal and consequently TEAM performance.
3. Complimenting performances by finding the good things being done and build on those areas and traits.
4. Encourage study habits, especially when someone has a problem.
5. Follow-up criticism with a positive comment especially when a swimmer is at a stage of plateauing.
6. Motivate at meets in a personally comfortable and acceptable manner always realizing you are the swimmer, not the coach. Lead with chants and cheers, pats on the back.
7. Discourage scape-goating and/or hazing. Everyone must contribute for TEAM success. Don’t have teammates building themselves up by tearing other down
8. Talk a winning strategy in meets and races. Talk a winning attitude.
9. If team problems exist, explain them in confidence with the coach to help solve them and move on with a close team atmosphere.
10. Discourage negative comments by trying to reverse non-contributing or distracting undercurrents.
11. Maintain a 3.0 unweighted grade point average in high school.
