*The ability to swim at a time other than your appropriate age group category is a
decision made at the coach's discretion
ASSIGNED SESSIONS / ATTENDANCE
Team practices are held Monday through Friday, June 4th through August 10th, at the College Park Clubhouse, 14731 Holly Oak Avenue, Irvine, CA 92606. Daily practices are broken down into separate sessions by age group and skill level. Children may occasionally swim up or down one (1) level to facilitate a conflict in a family’s schedule with coach's approval. However, children who would like to permanently change practice sessions must present a formal written request to the Coach prior to making the change. It is recommended that children attend five (5) practices per week.
In order to participate on the swim team, children must be comfortable in the water and be able to demonstrate 25 yards of horizontal, unsupported movement.
Children who are afraid of the water or deemed unsafe by the coaching staff and/or swim team board during the first few weeks of practice may be asked to wait a year before joining the team.
APPROPRIATE ATTIRE - DO NOT WEAR COMPETITION SUIT FOR PRACTICE
PRACTICE: Children may wear their own swimwear to practice. For girls, one-piece bathing suits and a mandatory swim cap. For Boys, jammers or briefs, no swim trunks. We also have practice suits and team caps available for purchase. Please email our apparel coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase these items.
MEETS: Swimmers are expected to wear an official team swimsuit (one-piece for girls; jammer or brief for boys). All swimmers are required to wear an official team cap. Team suits will be available for purchase through Competitive Aquatic Supply (CAS). Suits are non-refundable.
Goggles, swim fins and a water bottle are necessary for practice sessions. Please label all items with your child's name in permanent marker!
During their assigned practice session, children are supervised by the Splash coaching staff and are the responsibility of the College Park Splash Swim Team. The College Park Splash Swim Team is NOT responsible for any swimmer in the pool prior to or after his/her assigned practice session. For this reason, it is imperative that swimmers aged 13 and under be accompanied by a parent or responsible adult. Children under the age of 13 who are not accompanied by a parent or responsible adult will be required to leave the pool as soon as their practice session is finished. It is a privilege for the College Park Splash Swim Team to be able to use the College Park Clubhouse, so be considerate and abide by pool rules at all times when in the pool area.
