Swim Families -

No-Cell Phone Policy

  • Parents, thank you for your continued support of our swimmers, but in order to best create a team culture, the coaching staff is asking that swimmers do not use their cell phones on deck, important calls to/from parents are allowed. We would like swimmers to talk to each other, versus looking at their devices.

  •  It is asked that if a swimmer is expecting an important call right before the start of practice, that they alert their coach to the need to take a call. Calls can also be made or taken outside of the pool area. Per USA SWIMMING RULES, cell phones are not allowed in bathrooms or locker rooms.

  • Coaches continue to use their cell phones for work-related (attendance on the OnDeck app, looking up parent phone numbers, looking up swimmer’s best times…).


  • Be sure your child’s t-shirt size is accurate. We will be ordering them THIS WEEK and want to make sure we have it right. There will be a chance for parents to order them too. Stay tuned for that information in the coming week.

  • If you would like to order shirts for yourself or other family members, USE THIS LINK


  • Please USE THIS LINK to order parkas and backpacks. With the winter months (and holidays) coming up soon, parkas may be what your swimmer needs while heading to and from practice. LINK FOR PARKAS & BACKPACKS CLOSES. ( 10-14 business days delivery).

All the best,

Coach Mark
