Swim Calendar and Meet Schedule





FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: 

Do I have to be able to swim?
Yes- You must be able to swim the length of the pool without stopping in order to try out.

Do I have to have a physical? Yes

How many kids make it? Depends on the number trying out and swimming ability.

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 immediately following the tryout.

When does practice begin? See Calendar

Will we take a bus to away meets?  Yes transportation will be provided to away meets. Please make arrangements to be picked up after meets. *NOTE* All swimmers must wear clothes over their suits on the bus.

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? No later than the Wednesday before the meet.

Do you provide caps? Yes. Team caps will be provided. Suits must be purchased on your own. 

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

What should I bring to practice/meets? Do NOT eat dairy prior to practice. Usually a granola bar or a piece of fruit is best. Bring water, a towel, goggles, your clothes for school and all of your books to the Klein Collins pool at 7:15 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 coaches to have to reseed relays on deck. If you are ill- please have your parents notify me so I can excuse you from practice.

What happens if I fail a report card? You will not be able to participate in the meet.

How long are the meets? Generally about an hour and a half to two hours. District and Zone Meets will be much longer.

Will everyone get to swim on a relay? No, A and B relay spots are awarded based on fastest times. ONLY A RELAYS SWIM AT THE ZONE MEET TO QUALIFY FOR DISTRICT.
