- Swim meets do not happen without help from our parents. In addition to the usual parental roles as chauffeur, cheerleader, and supporter, parents run our swim meets.
- Parents are required to work 2 or 3 meets in addition to championships. A schedule of work assignments will be distributed prior to the first meet. If you have any questions about this, please contact the parent representative. Your child WILL NOT swim in championships if you have not worked your meets.
- If you are not working a meet, it is your responsibility to keep an eye on your swimmer. They should not be running around, goofing around, at the snack bar, on the playground equipment, or in another pool.
- It is not the coach’s responsibility to find swimmers or discipline them during a meet. If your swimmer becomes a major concern, they will be asked to leave the team. There are a lot of swimmers and we want this to be an enjoyable experience for everyone. Respect to all is very important and it allows the season to run smoothly.
Team Spirit and Sportsmanship:
- Swimmers can show our team spirit by making posters, doing cheers, staying for the entire meet, and cheering for their friends.
- We display good sportsmanship by being good losers and good winners.
- Do not ask swimmers from the other team about their times.
- Smile and be friendly, but do not let other swimmers intimidate you.
- After the race shake hands or say “good swim.”
- When you ask the timers for your time, always say “PLEASE” and “THANK YOU.”
- When cheering, cheer for your team, not against the other swimmers.
- Refrain from using words like “KILL” and NO CURSING will be tolerated.
- Failure to comply with these rules could result in a suspension for a meet.
