Swim Meet Sign-up

We encourage each swimmer to attend and participate each swim meet. However, it is not mandatory for them to do so. We do ask your cooperation in good communication between the coaching staff on whether you will be involved in swim meets. This includes:


  • declaring yes or no on the team website by the deadline.
  • emailing or calling if something has happened and you are no longer able to attend a swim meet or are running late.
