Parents Meeting:


The purpose of Yost Swim Team is to promote a fun recreational atmosphere that creates a safe and competitive summer experience for children who like to swim.



  • Parents – Parents are expected to support their swimmer(s) in attending both practices and meets. They are expected to positively encourage both their swimmer(s) and other swimmers at the end of practices, during, and after meets. Parents are expected to volunteer whenever possible to help at meets and to notify coaches in writing or by e-mail, of any absences, and to maintain a courteous manner when addressing the coaches, Yost staff, other parents, or swimmers.
  • Coaches – Coaches will maintain a positive, fun, and safe competitive environment. Coaches will also make every effort to give individual guidance to every swimmer in his or her age group and to improve the technique and performance of those swimmers. Coaches will maintain a courteous and polite manner when addressing other coaches, parents, and swimmers. Finally, coaches will listen to and address the concerns of parents and swimmers to the best of their ability.
  • Swimmers – Swimmers are expected to attend and try their best at practices and meets. They are expected to have a positive attitude towards coaches, parents and swimmers, and to encourage other swimmers. Finally, swimmers are expected to follow pool rules and follow the directions of any coach or pool staff (even at other pools).
