Rules and Expectations for swimmers

Here are some rules to remember to help us be the best teammates we can be.

1) Be at practice, on time and ready to go.

  • Come to practices!
  • Come early, so you are ready to go when practice starts.  
  • Swimmers are in charge of packing and bringing all their own equipment.

2) Be kind and respectful.

  • To your coach - listen and follow directions.  Raise your hand if you have a question.
  • To your teammates - never kick, injure, or put down another swimmer.  Any for of bullying will not be tolerated and can result in termination from club.
  • To the pool area - Leave it better than you found it.

3) Be safe and aware.

  • Don’t run in the pool area or anywhere on campus.
  • Parents - please walk your swimmers between the pool area and the parking lot.  
  • Use a feet-first entry unless told to dive by your coach.  Never push someone into the water or hold someone under water.

4) Be a good swimmer.

  • Work hard and always do your best.
  • Don’t correct other swimmers, or worry about who is slower or faster than you.
  • Cheer on your teammates.
  • Have fun!

Rules and Expectations for parents

At Speed Aquatics we offer swimmers the flexibility to participate certain days per week.  Families can change their days per week on a monthly basis meaning if a swimmer registers for 2x per week in September and decides they want to swim 4x per week they will need to wait until the 1st of the following month and would need to contact us prior to the 1st of the month.  Changes will NOT be made mid month.  With that being said we want to make sure that there is a clear understanding of swimmers improvement with level of commitment.

We offer 2, 3, and Full Access (4 day fee with 5th day free) per week options for Speed I, II, and III.   Speed IV has a 3x, and Full Access option.  Speed V has a Full Access option only.

2x per week, is the minimum days per week we allow.  This option is great for the new swimmer as they are building comfort and confidence.  For the non beginner this option is maintenance, meaning a swimmer will improve at a very gradual rate.  Although there will be stroke improvement this is not recommended for the competitive swimmer.

3x per week swimmers can expect to improve their stroke technique but will be missing out on stamina and endurance training.  This is the minimum recommendation for swimmers that are looking to improve there swim times and racing strategy/technique.

Full access is strongly recommended for all swimmers (beginner to advanced) who are serious about improving.  The improvement rate is much more rapid as swimmers are getting the repetitions, stroke work, endurance, stamina, and explosiveness. 

1) Please do not talk to coaches during practice times as safety and teaching is there top priority

2) Align your expectations with the level of your commitment.  If you swim 2x per week you will not imporve as much as the swimmer going 5x per week.

3) Check your account frequently 

4) Communicate if you are planning on taking time off, we will not refund for back prorates.

5) Attend meets in team apparel (tshirt, sweatshirt, etc)

6) Complete your volunteer hours (10hrs for the season)
