Competitive swimming is a UIL sport; therefore, it is only open to 7th and 8th grade students.
Due to the limited space available, the roster will be limited to 50 total swimmers on the team (including both 7th and 8th grade boys and girls).

(ALSO NOTE: If your child swims with a year-round club, i.e. Rice Aquatics, Houston Coogs, Texas Elite, HCAP, etc. and they practice 3 or more times a week AND participate in club swim meets, please contact Mrs. Olivier at email@example.com) I will need some additional information i.e. latest times, practice information, etc.
