Sea Lions Swim Team
The Sea Lions are the Scottish Hills summer swim team. This is a recreation team for our pool members that focuses on skill development and fun for the children! Summer swim is truly a family event because while the kids are in the pool, parents are volunteering their time to make sure the meets run smoothly. Most meets even have a parent vs coach race!
Listed below are many of our Frequently Asked Questions. If you still have questions, please contact the swim coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SHRC Swim Team FAQs
Do we need to belong to Scottish Hills Recreational Club to participate on swim team?
Do swimmers need to have swimming experience?
When are practices?
Practices start mid to late May (specific date TBA) and are offered in the afternoons and in the mornings (morning practices begin after the traditional calendar schools are out). Swimmers are asked to attend at least 3 practices per week (any days/times) and all practices are open to all ages.
When are meets?
What is the cost to participate?
What other benefits are there to joining the team?
Our focus is building an environment of fun, friendship, and sportsmanship for everyone involved. We have lots of activities for swim team throughout the season, including Tuesday morning crafts/activities, game nights with coaches, and Monday night pot luck dinners at the pool for swimmers and families. Swim team is a great way for kids and families to build friendships that will last long after the summer ends!
Parent volunteers are needed to help run the meets. Each family is asked to volunteer for 4 shifts during the season – shifts are in advance of the meet, the first half, the second half or clean-up at the end. Even if you are new to the team, there are easy ways you can help. The coordinators will meet with new parents to explain everything, and the Time Trial is like a mock meet where we can learn any of the positions.
We always need Stroke & Turn Judges – the one volunteer position where a class is required. If you are interested, please let the coordinators know so they can forward class information to you.
