Your swimmer must be able to complete these requirements unassisted and without stopping.  Swimmers must be comfortable in deep water. Coaches are not in the water with swimmers. 

What should my swimmer bring?

Your swimmer should wear a competitive swim suit and a pair of goggles.  Towels can be left in the locker room. We recommend bringing a lock for personal belongings in the locker room or keeping them with a parent.


Parents are required to observe from the observation area.  Per USA Swimming, and for your athlete's protection, ​parents may not enter the locker room or observe from the pool deck​.
