Subscribe to get text messages about team (Text @pkygoblue to 81010). This is the main way I will communicate about changes to practices, important deadlines, etc.
All athletes must have a FHSSA physical form on file with the school (forms available in the front office or downloadable here: scroll down to important information and be sure to note there are two forms – physical form to be completed by a doctor and consent form to be completed by parent/guardian and athlete). Athletes are not allowed to TRY OUT, practice or compete without both forms filled out completely (FHSSAA rule.)
2022 Practice Schedule
The renovations at Westside will NOT be completed in time for the beginning of the season. We will move to Westside during the season if/when they are completed. We have limited lane space at Northeast which may influence how many swimmers we can have on the team.
Try-outs = Wednesday, August 10 at 3:30 PM at Northeast pool. Swimmers must be able to swim 100 yards of freestyle without stopping and with side breathing technique.
•M- F from 3:30 – 5:00 PM at Northeast pool
•Newer swimmers may only practice 2-3 days a week: TBD.
•Band members practice on MW & some F. MUST commit to MW to be on the team.
Diving Practices = M-F from 3:30 – 5:00 PM (Location TBA- probably Mickel)
Team Fees: Each athlete is asked to make a voluntary contribution of $125 which supports our season. The money goes toward team t-shirts, team caps, banquet hall rental, banquet catering, banquet swag, transportation, meet fees, official fees, stopwatches, clipboards, etc.

Team Suits: Both teams will keep the same suits as last year.
The girls and boys teams order from separate companies because certain companies are for females-only. Team suits are optional but encouraged for everyone who plans to compete in meets. Younger or newer swimmers may want to wait to see if swimming is the right sport for them before ordering. Ordering information is based on company policies.
Girls Suits: Jolyn Store (multiple design options). This store will be open from August 1 – August 15. Suits will be mailed in bulk and arrive about 3 weeks after the store closes.
Boys Suits: Agon Swim (jammers or briefs). The store is open indefinitely but individuals are responsible for shipping charges. https://beta.agonswim.com/teams/91894
