The Poland Swim Team is a swim program that works on stroke technique and the skills to be successful in the sport of swimming. The goal is to help all swimmers improve their own technique and skills that will then transfer to the competition setting.
Practices will begin offered 5 days a week (M-F) and separated into groups based on age and experience.

The season will run for 7 consecutive Wednesdays starting in June and ending in July. The YSL league Relay and the Championship dates are TBD.
Swimmers will compete in Freestyle, Backstroke, Breaststroke and Butterfly. Coaches will choose the events in which each swimmer will compete.
Each event is broken down into the following age groups:

Swim Team Registration:
The cost of registration is $65 per swimmer (max of $175 per family). This includes a swim t-shirt.
The registration form includes swimmer information, medical form and a volunteer form. Parents should indicate their preferred parent committee assignment on the Volunteer Form in addition to any swim meet dates that you CANNOT volunteer (i.e. out of town). We will have volunteer assignments completed and will distribute at the Parent meeting in June. You will be responsible for finding a substitute if you are unable to volunteer on your day.
The fee in lieu of volunteering at the meets and for social swim team events is $150 per swimmer, $200 max per family. The more volunteers we have, the less times you will be needed. Remember, this is a fun summer activity to keep them busy. The more you help us, the better we can make it for our kids!
We are in need of more officials this season! If you are interested, there are some training days coming up and you will be reimbursed by the club. Let Shannon or Allie know if you are planning to sign up.
If you have any questions regarding the swim team, please feel free to contact Shannon Dudash or Allie Mattson.
The Parent meeting will be Sunday, June 2nd at 6pm in the main concession pavilion at the Swim Club.
