How do I join the Woodcreek H.S. swim or dive team?

  1. Please fill out the "join the team" tab and talk with one of our coaches (don't be shy on follow-up or come to the pool deck after school)

  2. Athletic Clearance: in advance of any practice or meet - you must complete your "Athletic Clearance" - Woodcreek High School Website (click here)

Reminders for Student Academic Schedules

  1. There are occasional meets / events that require early departure / excused absences from school. Our head coach is in charge of issuing the excused absences. Any questions or concerns - coach is happy to chat with you. 

  2. All athletes are expected to sign off on their player / coach handbook.

What if I already swim for another club?

  1. Do you swim for another group? Talk to Coach D'Arienzo directly to find a resolve that works for you and your schedule. 

  2. We know many athletes are part of other clubs, including those for water polo. Again, talk to Coach D'Arienzo so all parties are aware of your commitments and no assumptions are made to your schedule and availability.

  3. Communication: if you can't make a meet, event, or have challenges with practice times - chat with Coach in advance. Setting teams and registration is challenging without knowing who is available. 

Reminders for Student Academic Schedules

  1. Varsity squads do often take a course during the school day (athletic P.E.) and practice before/during school hours, while JV squads practice after school. 

  2. Varsity squad and setting schedules - have a conversation with the coaches so your next year's schedule and expectations can be managed properly. Avoid assumptions - have that conversation.

  3. There are occasional meets that require early departure / excused absences. Our head coach is in charge of issuing the excused absences. Any questions or concerns - coach is happy to chat with you. 

  4. All athletes are expected to sign-off on their player / coach handbook.
