During the first two days of practice, if they so desire, parents are welcome to observe practice from the chairs around the edge of the pool deck. After the first two days, the coaches kindly ask that parents drop their children at practice ready to swim, caps and goggles on, but that they don't remain on deck. The pool deck tends to get crowded and the coaches need to focus on the swimmers in the water in order to offer your children the best summer swim experience. Young children, in particular, tend to be easily distracted by their parents on deck. If your child has a hard time separating or for other reasons may need extra reassurance or care, please speak with the coaches and they will work with you to make every effort to help your child feel comfortable at practice. If at any time you would like an update on your child's progress, feel free to ask the coaches before or after practice. You may also contact them via email. Their email address are listed on the website.
Parents, please use these general guidelines to help your swimmer have their best season possible.
Please have your swimmers eat snacks in the concession/team area and not in the pool
Remember that swim team practice is NOT meant to be a swim lesson. If your swimmer needs extra help with any stroke, you need to sign them up for group and/or individual swim lessons.
