Frequently Asked Questions
1) Do I have to attend a certain number of practices? No, you may attend as many, or as few practice sessions as you wish. We realize that families will often have vacation time scheduled during the summer and may be out of town from time to time. Obviously the more practices a child attends the more they will improve.
2) Do I have to attend some/all the competitions/swim meets? You don't have to attend all the meets, but we do encourage you to attend as many as possible. The meets are designed for beginners and are a lot of fun. Everything we do in practice is designed to prepare your child for success at our swim meets. You've also already paid your entry fees, so why not give it a try.
3) Do I have to purchase a team swim suit? If you are planning to attend any of the swim meets, Yes, you should purchase a team swim suit. Just like a baseball or basketball team we look and feel more like a team when we wear our team uniform.
