Requirements to Join:
Swimmers must demonstrate proficiency with all four competitive strokes and complete the following workout prior to joining the team. If your swimmer is not yet able to meet these requirements check the Terrific Tigers and Amazing Alligators section of our classes page. These levels are designed to teach the strokes and prepare students for the swim team.
A few times a year we host swim meets so that all the members of our team can get together and show off what they have learned. Keeping with the lighthearted competitive spirit of our team, our meets are designed so that swimmers will be competing to improve their own personal best times, rather than against other teams or swimmers.
2021 Tentative Meet Schedule:
Spring Semester Meet: March 27th and 28th
Summer Semester Meet: July 24th and 25th
Fall Semester Meet: December 4th and 5th
* Swim Meets take place over a weekend. The specific day you swimmer will compete is based on their age group. Several announcements on a specific meets schedule starting 1 month prior to the meet.
: These rules are intended to be used as a general guide. The more complicated aspects (backstroke turns, flip turns, and pull-outs) are covered by the coaches but not required during swim meets. SSSS coaches are lenient with our newer swimmers, especially during swim meets yet continue to impress the importance of competition rules.
During a swim meet and at the coach’s discretion, a 5-second penalty per 25 yards may be applied to a swimmer’s time if a significant advantage was made by the continued use of the incorrect stroke or kick. Examples: Dolphin kick used during a breaststroke race. Flutter kicks used during a breaststroke or butterfly race.
