 Do I have to have a physical? Yes

 How many kids make it? 25 boys and 25 girls

 What if I can’t swim any stroke but freestyle?  It all depends on the number of kids who tryout. Sometimes- only freestyle is enough to secure a spot- other years we have had to cut over ½ the potential swimmers.

 Do I need my own suit? - Yes

 Do I have to wear a speedo? No- you do NOT have to wear a speedo or jammer (bike short style). However- regular swim trunks act similar to a parachute in the water and will slow you down.

 May I wear a 2 piece bathing suit (bikini) - No.

 Do I have to bring my own goggles? - Yes

 When will I find out the tryout results? Results will be available after school Friday the 31st

 How many events can I swim? Swimmers may be entered in either 2 individual and 2 relays OR 1 individual and 3 relays.

 When will I know if I make the meet? All swimmers who earn a spot on the team will swim at every meet. (The number of events may be limited.) Entries will be posted on the swim board outside room 220 by Tuesday of meet week.

 Is there a fee involved? There is no fee involved in swimming.

Bring water, a towel, goggles, your clothes for school and all of your books to the Klein Collins pool at 7:00 am. For meets - Please bring a snack to eat after school and water.

 How will I know my heat/lane? Heat and Lanes are posted by the high school coach once we arrive at the meet. Our trainers can provide you with that information once we arrive.

 What if I can’t attend a meet or am ill? I understand things happen- kids have UIL or they come down with something etc. If you know in advance you will be unable to attend a meet- please send me an email. It is a huge problem for my trainers to have to reseed relays on deck. If you are ill- please have your parents notify me so I can excuse you from practice.

 Is there a parent meeting? Yes. The parent meeting will be April 4th at 6:00 pm in the Schindewolf Gym.
