We’re all about getting wet and having fun while swimming faster than we have before.
Our season runs from early November through early February. While we have tryouts, they are to make sure that all team members can swim well enough to race a 50-meter race. We work on improvement of strokes and speed. We are not Swim Lessons for beginners.
Swim Team is open to all 7th and 8th graders (Boys and Girls). The team usually has about 8-12 swimmers in each age/gender group but can accommodate several more. While we have four groups, which compete in separate events, we act as one team with 2 coaches (Coach Johnson – 8A Science and Coach Coffman Fujiwara - 7C Science). All practices are held together.
Our practice schedule is in the evenings on Mon-Thurs. Times and locations are TBD but will most likely be after 5 pm at Pershing MS and/or Lamar HS. Most meets are held in the evenings during the week. There will be one Saturday meet on the morning of January 16 at Lamar HS.
District Schedule is: Lamar High School at 5:00pm
February 8th: 7th grade Boys and Girls
February 10th: 8th grade Boys and Girls
