TIDE Swim School 2019 - 2020

Today

Welcome to the Registration platform for 2019-2020 Swim School. You will be asked to provide contact, emergency, insurance, and pertinent medical information for your swimmer(s). DO NOT TRY TO DO THIS ON A MOBILE PHONE. IT WILL NOT WORK CORRECTLY.

READ CAREFULLY BEFORE CONTINUING

1. When you register you will select a registration group that corresponds to your swimmer's approximate ability level. If a swimmer is "in between" two levels, select the lower one.

2. To read descriptions of the 6 levels of instruction, go to the Swim School webpage at https://tideswimming.com/tide-swim-lessons/

3. The 6 registration groups are:

Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4  -  offered as one, 30-minute lesson per week    

Introduction to Competitive Swimming 1, Introduction to Competitive Swimming 2  -  offered twice a week for 45 minutes each practice. NOTE: these are training groups that require strong skills in 3-4 of the competitive swimming strokes (freestyle, backstroke, butterfly, breaststroke).

4. For swimmers in Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 you will not choose location, day, or class time. Most classes will be held at the Mt Trashmore YMCA. Once you have registered and we know your swimmer's age and ability level we can group swimmers of similar ages and abilities together (no more than 3 per class).  **NOTE THAT IF YOUR SWIMMER IS 12 YEARS OLD OR YOUNGER, YOU MUST REMAIN IN THE BUILDING WHILE THEY ARE IN CLASS. YOU CANNOT LEAVE THE PREMISES.**

5. Look at the chart of available class times on the Swim School webpage at tideswimming.com and choose your preferred day and time, with an alternate (2nd choice) for each.

6. If you wish to be in the same class as another swimmer (of the same ability level), please provide that swimmer's name and age.

7. Email the information requested in #4 and #5 above to coachkatherine@tideswimming.com

8. For swimmers in the Introduction to Competitive Swimming classes the schedule is published on the Swim School webpage. You do NOT choose days or times.
