Parent/Guardian Expectations:

  1. Be involved.  Ask your ahtletes about the skills they are working on and what they are learning.  We want them to be excited to share their swim experiences!  Volunteer at meets and team functions! It is a great way to get to know teammates and foster a sense of community among our TEAM. PLEASE attend the informational parent meeting at the beginning of the season.  It is the best way to know what's going on in the coming year.
  2. Ensure your athlete has what he/she/they need to suceed at practice.  Swimmers constantly lose goggles and rip caps - these things will need to be replaced frequently.  Please make sure the athlete has the equipment required for his/her/their group and comes to practice ready to train; whether that be in the water or wearing appropriate footwear, we need to be ready to go on time!
  3. Read your emails!  Coach Nik will send an email each week highlighting any important information for the upcoming week.  Ignoring team emails may result in arriving to practice, only to find that the time has been changed or it has been canceled altogether, missing team functions, or missing meet deadlines.  Additionally, if there are emergency schedule changes, Coach Nik will communicate those by email throughout the week.  Please be sure and read those emails.
  4. Please show respect to the athletes, the Board, and the coaches.  We do not tolerate disrespectful behavior, as it prevents athletes from developing into respectful teammates.  We want our parents and coaches to set the example, so please remember that these athletes observe how we treat one another.  Let's make sure we are presenting the best version of ourselves.
