Pickerington Tiger Sharks

Week 1: Important Dates and Reminders

Hello Tiger Sharks and Families!

Our first day of practice is fast approaching and we are so excited to start the season!

A few reminders for the first day: be sure to arrive on time for practice so we can make the most of the time we have:

11 and up: 7:00am - 8:00am

10 and under: 7:45am - 8:45am

(everyone is in the water today)

For practice, bring a water bottle, goggles, cap (for sale at practice if you would like to purchase), towel and warm gear for the chilly mornings.

Can't wait to see you there!

Additional Reminders:

  • Practices will NOT be canceled due to rain, please join our group on Remind for cancellations: https://www.remind.com/join/ptigersh
  • Please do not drop off your swimmer before 7am on practice days, as a safety protocol from the city there will not be a supervised adult to be with your child.
  • No congregating in the bathrooms or shower areas.
  • If you have questions regarding swim team, please address board members or coaches (after practice). The pool staff is separate from the team and is unable to answer your questions.
  • Parents, keep clear of the swimming deck during practice times. It is unsafe to try to hold a conversation with a coach while we have swimmers in the water. The same goes for trying to talk to your swimmer during practice. Parents are to remain in the grassy areas or under the awnings of the pool.
  • Please review our season meet schedule and...

    1. Declare your swimmer(s) for all dual meets
    2. Pick your favorite volunteer jobs

    It's easy! Just visit our "Upcoming Meets" page, https://members.tigersharks.us/upcoming-meets (login required), and follow the "Meet Entry" (swimmer declaration) and "Job Signup" links. If you have questions, please ask!

Big picture
Our Team Handbook is an effort to provide a quick summary of everything about our team. As a summary, it puts the most relevant info at your fingertips. The details are filled in by the website. If you're wondering about how our team runs, this is a good place to start.

We will NOT be having an in person parent meeting this year, so please read the handbook to get all your questions answered. For any new families, this is a great place to learn more about the team.
