Morning Practice Weather Considerations:

  • Weather can sometimes be questionable in the morning at the Roosevelt Pool, however plan to attend practice unless you get a text message from MSC stating otherwise.
  • A general rule of thumb is that if the temperature is above 50 degrees we will probably have practice.
  • We will not have practice if it is raining or lightning. 

 

“No Swim” Dates

“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.  “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. 

  • Minot Meets:  we plan to host two mid-week Intrasquad Meets. 
    • Tentative Dates are June 22 and July 13  (Late Afternoon start time)
  • State Meet - tentative date is July 23-25
  • 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 $25 for one day and $30 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 $35.  MSC pays $10 and the swimmer pays $25.  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 equipment for daily practices.  MSC has samples of these items on hand for sizing purposes. 

 

Parent Meetings and Communication

MSC utilizes email, Facebook and Instagram to communicate with parents.  Parent meetings are held as needed.  The purpose of these meetings is to educate families on many topics of being involved in competitive swimming.  In addition, we will educate parents and swimmers regarding what to expect and how to prepare for a swim meet.   There is a general Minot Swim Club Facebook page and a "Minot Otter Mom & Dads" private group Facebook page.

 

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.

 

Financial Assistance Scholarship

MSC offers financial assistance for swimming fees to those families that qualify based on income levels. If you would like more information, please send an email to [email protected]

 

Minot Swim Club Board

The Minot Swim Club Board is responsible for the overall management, budgeting and direction of the Minot Swim Club.  There are 13 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:  [email protected]
