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 Monday, June 10th, be offered 5 days a week (M-F), and swimmers will be separated into groups based on age and experience.

*Times are subject to change once we have registration numbers and as the coaches see fit.*

8:00-9:30am – 13+

9:30-10:30am – 11/12

10:30-11:15am – 9/10

11:15-12:00pm – 8 & under

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). If you do not fill out the form, you will be assigned to committees and dates where help is needed. Volunteer assignments will be completed and distributed at the Parent meeting in June. It is your responsibility to find a substitute if you are unable to volunteer on your assigned day. Be sure to sign in before the meet to get credit. 

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, the Official Training is on Saturday, May 11th at the Davis YMCA. The Level 1 class is 8am-12:30pm. The Level 2 class is 12:30-5pm. The cost of the training, in addition to the swim team registration fee, will be reimbursed at the end of the season for your swimmer(s) after officiating a minimum of 3 meets this season. Let Shannon or Allie know if you are planning to sign up. They will help you get registered. 

If you have any questions regarding the swim team, please feel free to contact Shannon Dudash or Allie Mattson. 

Parent Meeting:

The Parent meeting will be Sunday, June 2nd at 6pm in the main concession pavilion at the Swim Club.
