***No Swim Practice July 4 & 5

“No Swim” Dates

We share the Minot High School pool with several other groups.  There will be times we may not be able to have swim practice due to the pool being used for High School or Middle School Swim Meets.  “No Swim” dates are listed on the calendar on the website at www.minotswimclub.com.

“No Locker Room” Practices

Because we are sharing space with MHS varsity sports, we may at times not have access to the locker rooms. This may be due to a basketball game, wrestling, or other sports. The locker room will be used by the teams competing in that sport.  To allow our swimmers the opportunity to swim, we will be allowed to use the pool; however, swimmers will not have a locker room to change in. Parking will be an issue during these practices. 

Here are some guidelines for “No Locker Room” practices:

  1. Swimmers should come with their suits already on. They will not be able to change prior to practice.
  2. Swimmers will enter Magic City Campus through Door #29 that goes directly into the pool area.   
  3. Do not use the bus drive through area, this causes congestion and issues with the visiting teams and athletes.  Parents should park in the lot on the East side of the building.
  4. Swimmers may not be able to change after practice. Please remember this when dressing for the weather conditions.  Bring clothes that can be worn over wet suits.
  5. Bathrooms will be available through the door at the top of the bleachers.  They are labeled “Faculty Bathrooms”.  This door cannot be propped open and you may only use the bathrooms.  The commons area might be blocked off.  Please do not allow swimmers to go to this area dripping wet. 

“No Locker Room” practices will be listed on the calendar on the website at: www.minotswimclub.com

Weather Cancellations

In case of bad weather, cancellations will be posted on our website www.minotswimclub.com  and/or the local TV station websites:  www.kmot.com and www.kxnet.com for updates regarding our practices.  Some days we might cancel the outdoor practice if it is cold or rainy.

Swim Meets

Swim meets are available throughout the state most weekends from June to July. There is one meet in Minot June 22-23.  It is your decision which meets your swimmer attends, keeping in mind that attending a swim meet will show progress the swimmer is making during practice.  Sign up deadline for meets is on Tuesdays, 1 1/2 weeks prior to the meet as noted on the online calendar. The general price for a swim meet is $20 for one day and $25 for a two day meet. There are some meets that will have a higher fee and will be noted on the event sign up.  Late fee is $25 per swimmer for registrations after the deadline.

One of the benefits of joining the Minot Swim Club is that we assist with the price of the swim meets.  For example, the average full price to attend a one day swim meet is $30.  MSC pays $10 and the swimmer pays $20.  MSC Fundraising fees are used to help supplement the meet expenses for the families so the swimmers can attend meets at a reduced price.

Swim meets are listed on the Website under the Events tab.  The meets that the club will be attending as a team will be noted on the event information.  You may attend the other meets, but there may or may not be a coach attending.  You will be notified prior to the meet if this is the case and you can adjust your decision if you choose.

Equipment

Swimmers will need to purchase flippers, hand paddles and a mesh bag for practices.  MSC has samples of these items on hand for sizing purposes.  Equipment should be ordered online via this link to Swim Outlet

Parent Meetings

Parent meetings are held each month during practice.  The purpose of these meetings is to educate families on many topics of being involved in Swimming.  It is also a time to inform parents about upcoming activities and events for the Minot Swim Club. 

Fundraising Obligation:

During the Long Course season there are no set fundraising requirements. If a fundraising opportunity presents itself, the MSC Board will decide whether or not to participate on a case by case basis. Fundraising is vital to our organization and the MSC board will communicate with the parents if an opportunity arises that they feel would benefit our club.

Minot Swim Club Board

The Minot Swim Club Board is responsible for teh overall management, budgeting and direction of the Minot Swim Club.  There are 15 board members that are elected or appointed to those positions.  The board member names are listed on the Minot Swim Club website.  Board meetings are held monthly.  Feel free to ask questions of any board member or send an email to the club email address:  minotswimclub@gmail.com
