Swim team can be very different in many ways from other sports, and so can being a swim team parent. There's new lingo, new ways to support your child, and the actual competition can look very different. We encourage you to reach out to other "veteran" parents on the team - they can teach you the tips and tricks of the sport, and help make all of your swim "firsts" much easier. While the coaches are always ready and willing to help you learn about the sport, other experienced parents have the unique view of what parenting a swimmer looks like, and can provide valuable insight.
