EXPECTATIONS FOR PARENTS
When a child swims on a swim team it requires a lot of participation by the parents. Unlike other sports we need every family to participate in order for the season to be a success. For this reason, a family that joins the Serpent Swim Team has the following requirements:
- Help swimmer(s) attend the minimum 3 Serpent practices per week. (more info)
- Volunteer for 8 services hours in a season. (more info)
- Help swimmer(s) participate in a minimum of 3 meets (more info)
- All swimmers must compete in our team suit and cap (more info)
