We know that some senior swimmers participate in high school swimming with their school. The main rule is that a swimmer participating in high school swimming may not miss a high school practice for a club practice and if he/she chooses to swim in a swim meet, he/she may not swim any of the events that are offered for high school swimming. There are 2 registration options for both girls and boys who swim high school during club seasons.

Girls: Fall/winter season with high school sport – choose this option if your swimmer will not swim club during high school season. (no mornings/evenings or weekend practices) Choosing this option will allow you to return to club swimming in November.

Girls: Fall/winter or full season – choose one of the two regular options if your swimmer would like to have the option to attend practices in the mornings or weekends if there is not a conflict with high school swim practice.

Boys: Fall/winter season with high school sport – choose this option if your swimmer will not swim club during high school season. (no mornings/evenings or weekend practices) Boys who choose this option will swim with club from September – November, and high school swimming December – February.

Boys: Fall/winter or full season – choose one of the two regular options if your swimmer would like to have the option to attend practices in the mornings or weekends if there is not a conflict with high school swim practice.
