How do we know if practice is canceled?
Practice is on unless we send out an email notifying you that it is canceled. We make every effort to hold practice. We try to make a decision at least 30 minutes before practice. The CHCC Pool Manager and Coaches decide.
How many times am I required to volunteer?
We ask that each family volunteer for a minimum of 4 swim meets/season. Please sign up for a job at the same time you declare your swimmer for a meet. There is no job on deck that will prevent you from watching your child swim. In fact, often times you will have a BETTER view of the races by volunteering on deck. If your child is not swimming in ANY meets or you have some extenuating circumstances that prevent you from attending swim meets, we have alternative ways for your to fulfill your volunteer commitments. Please see the "Volunteer" tab on the Main Menu or meet with a Parent Rep for details on the different ways you can help our team.
How do I declare my swimmer for a swim meet?
On the Home page of our website you will see a list of the scheduled swim meets. Next to the meet name and date you will see a "Sign Up" button. Click on that button and follow the instructions on committing or declining your swimmer. It's very helpful for the coaches and parent reps to know who is swimming several days ahead of the swim meet, so each sign-up has a deadline. A lot of work goes on behind the scenes to prepare our team for a swim meet - this is one way you can help your coaches and parent reps stay organized and be ready for each competition!
What do I do if I forgot to declare my swimmer/ or need to pull my swimmer from a meet?
Late entries are usually allowed; just notify your age group coach as soon as you know your swimmer is able to attend the meet. If your swimmer cannot attend a meet at the last minute, please email a parent rep so we can alert the chaperone in charge of your swimmer's age group.
When and where does my swimmer get his/her ribbons?
Usually the meet results are complete the morning following a swim meet and the ribbons are available at practice. The ribbons are assembled with labels and placed in your family's file folder by swimmer's last name. These files are located in a large plastic file box which is often seen out at practices. Your child can check their folder anytime for ribbons or other important season information.
