Level 3

Welcome Level 1, Level 2, and Level 3 Swimmers and Parents!


1. Parent Meeting: Monday, September 9th  at the First Lutheran Church in Torrance. For more details see the Meet/Event page on TU.

2. Equipment List: Your swimmers should have this equipment by Tuesday, September 3rd.

  • Black practice cap
  • Goggles + spare pair
  • Water bottle
  • Swim Bag
  • Fins 
  • Kickboard
  • Practice suit
  • Pull Buoy (Level 2 & 3 only)
  • Snorkel (Level 2 & 3 only)

​3.Attendance Expectations: (*Also, for all levels, Swim Meet participation is encouraged!) 

  • Level 1: 2/3 practices
  • Level 2: 2/3 practices *
  • Level 3: 2/3 practices *

All equipment needs to have your swimmer's name labeled on it. You can purchase all equipment at The Swim Guy store (15900 Inglewood Ave - only 3 miles from the Plunge).

You can purchase caps by emailing Coach Chantal. Specify if you want silicone ($15) or latex ($6) and which color (black is for practice, red is for meets). Don't forget to change your swimmer's shirt size in their member profile on our website

If your swimmer is in Level 2 or Level 3 and they are going to attend specific meets (info to be sent in weekly email), they need to have the correct Meet Shirts. Those can be ordered through Board President Oscar Gonzalez. He needs to know what size and what color (red, black, white). Each shirts is $10, or you can buy all three together for $25.

4. Read the Weekly E-mail: THIS IS PROBABLY THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO KNOW. You will receive an e-mail every Monday with important information like the practice schedule for the week (shouldn't change much week to week).

5. Meets: For Level 1, at the end of the session, your swimmer will have an opportunity to be in a mock-meet. It really helps not only the swimmers, but also parents understand what the competitive team goes through at swim meets. The swimmers learn about check-in, reading a heat sheet, the whistles for starts, how event #'s work, and they get to race.

Parents learn about timing, which seems to be a fear, but this is where you can understand how easy it is. They also learn about what is involved in setting up a meet, and tearing down a meet. These are important, as we plan on hosting more meets at TUAC as your swimmers get older and hopefully transition to the competitive team.

For Level 2 and Level 3, they are invited to attend certain meets throughout their sessions. It is optional.
