Swim Team Policies & Information

Our Purpose and Philosophy:

Have a question?  Contact swim team coordinators, Keri Sauer at sauerswim@gmail.com, Heather Merz at heather.merz@gmail.com and Amber Vroman at bavroman@sbcglobal.net 

To provide a fun, safe environment for the Oak Creek Swim Team, where each swimmer will improve their technique and endurance; practice good sportsmanship and respect; build team spirit and engage in fair competition.

  • Volunteer Commitment – In order to continue our successful swim team program, your participation is vital.  Each family is required to volunteer in a variety of positions for a minimum of three complete meets.  (Sign-ups will be done using this webpage  – meets will not begin if positions are not filled).
  • Concession Donations – Concession is our only fundraiser outside of our sponsors and spirit wear, and we need your help to be successful; therefore, each family is required to donate food according to the posted list for each home meet concession.  If you prefer not to donate items, a fee of $10 per home meet is payable at the time of registration.
  • Meet Events  You will declare your childs intent to swim each meet.  This must be done no later than 3 days prior to the meet, under each meet listing.  If your child is not marked as a "yes please sign my child up" 3 days prior they will not be entered in the the meet.  Coaches will turn in their meet line-up (based on current vacation schedules) immediately following practice the day before the meet. Once the line-ups are in, NO CHANGES WILL BE MADE EXCEPT IN CASE OF ILLNESS OR EMERGENCY.  Meet events will be posted at practice on the day of the meet as well as emailed to the team roster.  Swimmers are to arrive at the meet with their hands marked (preferably with Sharpie) with their events. (
