Mesh Bags

Due to setup for this weekend's competition, please take all mesh bags home after practice Thursday evening. If you know your last practice of the week may be earlier than Thursday, please take your bag home after that practice. Any bags left behind will be stored in the wet storage room on deck, and while we do our best to store gear safely, the best way to ensure all your gear is accounted for is to take your bag home. Thanks!

Mudsock Dual

Today is the deadline for this meet. We still do not have specific event information from our hosts at FAST, so if there are events your child wishes to race in, please leave a note and I'll do my best to ensure they get in as many of those races as we can.

High School Meets

Regular practice times will be impacted on the following dates due to HSE High School Swimming and Diving home meets:​

  • Tuesday, December 11 (Carmel)
  • Saturday, December 15 (HSE Splash and Clash)
  • Thursday, January 10 (North Central)
  • Tuesday, February 5 (IHSAA Girls Diving Regional)
  • Thursday, February 14 (IHSAA Boys Sectional Prelims)
  • Saturday, February 16 (IHSAA Boys Sectional Finals)

In all cases, we will do our best to adjust our practice schedule to a. still offer practice and b. communicate alternate practice times as best we can.

Cold Weather

Please enter and exit the pool area through Door #10, the main athletic entrance. When those doors open during the winter, cold air comes on deck which impacts our young swimmers. Please pick up after practice from the athletic entrance, not the doors on the north window end of the pool. THANK YOU!
