Frequently Asked Questions

What are the requirements for the Chippers (11:30–12) group?

A child MUST be able to swim the length of the pool (25 yards) to participate in Chippers.

How do I know if my child/ren should practice with the A, B, or Chippers group?

If there is a question, just ask, and one of the coaches will tell you which group they think will benefit your child the most.

What should I bring to a meet?

Must haves: team swimsuit, lots of towels, goggles, and sunscreen.
Nice to haves: swim cap, sweats, blanket or sleeping bag, water, snacks, and cards or a book.

What happens at a swim meet?

Dual swim meets begin at 9:00am on Saturday mornings, but all swimmers should be at warm-ups by 8:00am. Each meet has four events. The first event begins with the 8 & under boys, then the 8 & under girls, then the 9–10 boys, then the 9–10 girls, and so on through the age groups. The coaches will gather all of the swimmers for each event before it starts and send them to the Marshalling area. The Marshallers will tell the swimmers when to swim and direct them to the correct lanes. When the horns sounds, swim fast! The fastest swimmer in each heat wins a Heat Winner Ribbon or other prize.

What events will I swim in a meet?

The coaches will decide before each meet what you will swim (with some input from the swimmers and parents). Each swimmer may swim in up to 3 out of the 4 events per meet. The four events are (1) Medley Relay—four swimmers per team with each one swimming a different stroke (backstroke, breast stroke, butterfly, and freestyle in that order); (2) Freestyle—8 & unders swim 25 yards, everyone else swims 50 yards; (3) Specialty Stroke—each meet has a different specialty stroke such as backstroke, breaststroke, butterfly, distance freestyle, and individual medley (IM); and (4) Freestyle Relay—four swimmers per team with each one swimming freestyle (25 yards each for 8 & unders, 50 yards each for everyone else).

Where should my swimmer sit at a swim meet?

There is a designated “team area” that the swimmers should stay in or near. This is so they can hear their name being called when it is their turn to swim.

What happens at a dive meet?

Dual dive meets begin at 5:00pm on Fridays, but all divers should be at warm-ups by 4:00pm. Each meet begins with the 8 & under boys, then the 8 & under girls, then the 9–10 boys, then the 9–10 girls, and so on through the age groups. There are five groups of dives: Front, Back, Inward, Reverse and Twist, and each of these dives has several positions: straight (layout), pike and tuck, and can have somersaults and twists added as well. At a meet, divers perform the required dive of the week and a specific number of additional dives depending on their age group. The 8 & unders do the required dive plus two additional dives. The 9 & 10s do the required dive plus three additional dives from two different groups. The 11 & 12s do the required dive plus four additional dives from three different groups. The 13 & ups do the required dive plus five additional dives from four different groups. The coaches will help you decide what dives to do at each meet.

What should I do if my child gets sick the day of a meet?

If you sign up for a meet, we really expect you to come, but if you get sick, please contact the coaches ASAP because the line-up will need to be changed.

Can I swim or dive at Championships?

Anybody who has participated in at least two dual meets is eligible to compete in Championships.

How can parents help support the swim & dive team?

We need lots of parents to help run the home meets. We ask at least one parent from every family to volunteer at every home meet. There are lots of jobs that require no experience, and training will be provided for those that do. See the volunteer descriptions for more information. We also need help at other events throughout the summer like on Tie-Dye Day, for the Pancake Breakfast, at Championships, and at the Honors Potluck.
