FAQ's

Does my child need to know how to swim to be on the team?

The swimmer must be able to make it across the pool un-aided to compete. 

Practices are geared toward improving stroke and technique, getting faster, and not necessarily "learning to swim".  

Are private "learn to swim" lessons available?

Yes, the coaches can provide private lessons if you schedule with them directly.  These lessons are not part of the team dues and are subject to the coach's discretion on price and availability. Please see a coach or email: tamarronswimcoach@gmail.com for more information.

Do we have to come to every practice to be on the team/swim in the meets?

Being at every practice is highly recommended, but not mandatory.  Things come up, but we want to make sure that there's clear communication between families and coaches as to the whereabouts of swimmers to avoid possible issues of availability.

When are swim meets?

Meets are typically held Saturday mornings before the pool opens to the neighborhood or Monday evenings when the pool is closed to the neighborhood.

The 2022 meet schedule can be found at the drop-down tab that says "meet schedule"

Where are the swim meets?

Swim meets can be held at our neighborhood facility or the opposing team's facility

Is the price for the whole season?

Yes, the price listed above is for the entire season

(it breaks down to about $4.20/ 30-45 min group practice per child)

Can we pay per practice?

Unfortunately no, our insurance covers only swimmers that pay in full to participate in the program.

Other forms of Communication

Communication comes from our team e-mailRemind101 account, and our team Facebook page.

Parent Handbook

Questions about volunteering points, practice schedules, and anything else can be found in the "Parent Handbook" in the Maritime Regs (rules of the ocean) section of the website above.  Please review this section before registering your child/children as these are the rules we abide by for our program.

Parent Meetings

Our Pre-Season Parent meeting will be held in April before the season starts.  We are looking forward to meeting everyone and answering as many questions as possible.

TEAM SUITS

Our team suit can be found under the "Merchant Ship" Tab. We will have a suit sizing and a t-shirt order at the parent meeting in April.
