2021 LMYA Swim Team 

May 3 - August 1, 2021

Acalanes High School Pool

COVID-19 UPDATE:  The summer season schedule is subject to change depending upon protocols established by the County. Our schedule as described below is what we hope to be able to offer to all swim members, but practice times and meet schedule may change.

Swimmers of all abilities are welcome on the LMYA Swim team.  For swimmer safety, however, all participants must be able to swim 25 yards across the pool.  During age group practices, swimmers will focus on age-appropriate stroke technique, drills and conditioning.  Each swimmer on the team has the opportunity to participate in all regular season meets and is encouraged to try different events. While we do not have a minimum practice participation requirement for swimmers - as with any sport, you get out of it what you put into it.  Swimmers who come regularly to practice will find they progress in skill and endurance more steadily than swimmers who come less often. Preseason evening practices begin in May and run Monday through Thursday until local schools are dismissed for the summer.  Summer daytime practices run Monday through Friday once school is dismissed with some evening practices available for swimmers who cannot make it to daytime practices.  In the spirit of recreational swimming, the LMYA Swim team does not advocate double day practices.

 

Since our team operates purely on “Parent Power”, parent participation is a required component of swim team registration and membership.  Every family will be required to work a specified number of jobs including 2 County Meet jobs.  The total number of regular season jobs will be determined once registration closes, but historically has been 7 - 9 shifts during the regular season plus 2 County meet jobs.  We expect that these job requirements will be less this year as we will be limited to the number of people on the pool deck.  Some LMYA Swim Board positions will satisfy the regular season job requirement.  Board Members are expected to fulfill County meet jobs.
