Ribbons will be given for the first six places in dual swim meets. Awards for larger meets vary and are the responsibility of the host club. An entry fee may be charged at the larger meets in order to cover the cost of the awards. The coaching staff will inform all swimmers if an entry fee is required for any of the meets during the summer.
Swimmers who do not receive their awards during the swim meet will receive awards as soon as possible at a practice. Check your mailbox at practice the next day.
Awards evenings will be held to recognize all of the swimmers, prepers and divers for their hard work. The swim/prep team generally has a banquet and the dive team usually has an ice cream social. Each member will receive an award and special awards will be given to deserving athletes. Look for information about reservations to come home in July.
Our main line of communication is our website (www.apswimanddive.com). Parents and swimmers are asked to check the website and the bulletin board at the pool OFTEN for important information concerning the swim team and swim team schedules. We also send home most information via team e-mails. Weather communications and other timely information will be sent via Remind text alerts. Please contact a coach or parent board member for information on how to get signed up for both lists! Each family also has a mail folder at the pool where notices and ribbons may be placed.

SPECTATORS AND FANS
Attendance by family members, friends and relatives is encouraged and usually no admission fee is required at any of the meets (except for the City Championship). Seating is a minimum at most pools and usually not adequate, therefore you are encouraged to bring your own chairs. Refreshments are available at most pools, and help support the home team.
Spirit Week is the week leading up to the respective City Championship. There are many fun activities scheduled throughout the week. These activities include all swimmers and divers, whether or not they are signed up to swim or dive in the City Meets. All team members and their families are invited to Family Fun Night and the Awards Evening.
