About Swim and Dive Team



 

Who Can Join?

Any member's child who is age 4 to 18 years old who (for safety reasons) can swim one length of the pool (25 meters). The team has fast swimmers and great divers, but there are also many kids who join because they love being on a team, being in the water on a hot day, and being part of fun summer sport with lots of kids from the pool.

Don't let the word TEAM intimidate you. Join either the swim or dive team or even both! It is a great activity for the summer. All are welcome and encouraged to join the fun.

All parents of team members are welcome to join the High Point Pool Booster Club!


First Mates

Ahoy First Mates! High Point Pirates began a new program in 2015 to introduce young swimmers (ages 4 to 8) to swim team. First Mates practice on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 10:00 to 10:30 AM. The focus of the practices is to improve technique and endurance so that swimmers will be ready to take on a 25 yard race at our last home swim meet of the season.

This program cost is $50, and Mates receive all the benefits of team membership. This includes a white team T-shirt to dyed on Tie Dye Day and participation in all of our fun social activities including the splash off party, Friday snacks and more!

First Mates should still participate in swim lessons, since practice focuses primarily on the freestyle stroke. There are plenty of helpers in the water during practice!

Please Note: First Mates practices end with our last home swim meet of the season. There will be no First Mates practices after the last home swim meet.


Dive Team Requirements

Athletes ages 10-under must be able to perform 3 dives in 3 categories (forward, back, and twist or inward) by the first meet (in mid-June) in order to be on the team. Athletes who are not able to do 3 dives will be encouraged to participate in dive lessons and may rejoin the team when they are able to complete 3 different dives  Athletes ages 11 and up must have 4 dives in 4 categories (forward, back, twist, and inward or reverse). 


Team Racing Suits

The team swim suits are available at Simply Swimming at 6649 University Avenue in Middleton, WI. It is best to take your child to the store and have him/her try on suits in order to get the right size. 

The team suit is not required but most kids do get them. The team suit encourages team spirit and unity and makes it easier for coaches and parents to recognize our swimmers, however, it is perfectly acceptable to wear a team suit from a past year, a suit that is similar to the team suit, or whatever your child prefers.

Don't delay if you wish to get the team suit! Simply Swimming orders the team suits in advance, and once the in-store stock is sold out they cannot order more. Make sure to let Simply Swimming know that you are a member at High Point pool so you get the team discount for other items (goggles, towels, swim bags) purchased in the swim department.Visit the Simply Swimming website for store hours. Please note: Simply Swimming is closed on Sundays.


Team Apparel

Apparel includes t-shirts, shorts, pants and sweatshirts with the High Point Pirates Swim & Dive logo. Anyone can order apparel including swim and dive team members, siblings, parents and general pool members. The more the merrier!!!
