General Swim Team Information:

While school is still in session, practices are scheduled for after school hours. Once school is out for the summer, swim team practice shifts to morning hours.

Practices are set up for kids to come every day, but if you can’t make that just make as many as you can. It really is in your kid’s best interest to try and come daily – the practices aren’t that long but swimming can be improved greatly by daily mentoring with the coaches

  1. PARENT VOLUNTEERS and TRAINING: It takes many volunteers to run a swim meet and everyone must pitch in to make them successful! We ask every swimmer to have a parent volunteer at least TWO TIMES in the season. There are a couple of volunteer roles that require training and these volunteers MUST attend a training (even if you attended last year). The training schedule will be published as soon as it is available. If you have never attended a training before, you are in for a real swim meet education! You will leave the training with a much better understanding of how the meets are judged and scored. We recommend the training even if you are not volunteering for the roles that require it.
  2. HOW TO SIGN UP TO BE ON THE TEAM: All JCC members and non-members are welcome to join the Water Dragons Swim Team. Swimmers ages 4-18 can swim with the team. If your child is having fun and improving in the water, we think they should be on the team! If they are reluctant to participate after the first two weeks, we encourage families to wait until next year so the child does not have a negative experience with the water.
