1. Each training group has specific attendance requirements appropriate for the objectives of that group.  As a general rule, the least possible interruption in the training schedule will produce the greatest amount of success.  The club does, however, encourage younger swimmers to participate in other activities in addition to swimming.  The expectation level of the coaches to attend practice increases as swimmers move to higher groups.  Senior swimmers must inform their coach if they will not be at practice (email, text, phone call, or advance notice at an earlier practice.
  1. Due to the fact that swimmers are not supervised before and after practice, they should arrive at the pool no earlier than 15 minutes prior to their workout time. They should also be picked up no later than 15 minutes after their practice is over. Swimmers should be ready to swim five minutes prior to the start of their practice.
  1. In case a youngster is late for practice, it is our hope that the parents will send a note with the child, or an email/text message to the coach, explaining the reason for tardiness.
  1. Plan to stay the entire practice. The last part of practice is very often the most important. Usually, there are also announcements made at the end of each practice. In the event that your child needs to be dismissed early from practice, a note/text message/email from the parent for each dismissal is required.
  1. Occasionally, most of a practice group may be attending a meet, in which case you will be notified of a practice change or cancellation.  Check the website and club email.
  1. KISU swimmers are expected to come to practice with the appropriate gear.  If there is a dryland session, swimmers are expected to wear dryland clothing – t-shirt, shorts and proper footwear - no skirts, jeans or strapless gowns.
