Note to Senior Swimmers - 2022 / 23 Season

Dave Anderson

September 4, 2022

 

We have begun the preseason training and regular training begins on Tues, 9/6.  The season is about 32 weeks long - loosely divided Fall - Winter - early Spring.  Chandler and Dave are really looking forward to a great Short Course season!  It’s a long one but it is packed with excitement, great training and competition!

 

We welcome swimmers and/or their parents to ask questions when / if you have them:

WSAC - Based Athletes - David Anderson [email protected]

 

Each week, a newsletter is published usually on Wednesday on a FaceBook Group called Schroeder Swim Team News.  The link is below.

Chandler and I use Commit Swimming to write and publish our workouts.  Athletes can view the workouts using the app.  Dave also uses What’s App to communicate with athletes

We strongly encourage senior athletes to add their personal email addresses to the TeamUnify website under their family account so that they can receive news, newsletters and reminders about signing up for meets

A heads up, there is a big change in how to register as a member of USA Swimming this fall.  Each family will now register their athlete(s) annually.  Historically the club registers the athlete and NEW will be a shift coming at the direction of the National Governing Body (NGB) to put the onus on the individual.

Each parent/family or 18+ athlete will have to acknowledge the information in the Minor Athlete Abuse Protection Policy (MAAPP) this fall - it is an annual requirement.

Senior Meets 2022-23

 

In general, Senior swimmers should register for meets, pick their events and if they have questions or need help, they should ask their coaches for guidance.  

 

Parents will have to help by adding their swimmer’s email addresses to their family’s account and help to remind swimmers of their responsibility to sign themselves up for contests by the deadline.  A note to swimmers:  When choosing swims and events, you should have a reason for signing up for an event or event line up.  What races are important to you, what do you need to work on, what will you try to accomplish by racing the event are the questions you should be considering.
