If your child is not able to swim in a meet, it is important that you notify the coach in writing at least 2 days in advance. Check the Swim Team bulletin board for sign out sheets. If you have an emergency and need to cancel the day of a meet, call the pool at 302.478.9965 and tell Coach Clark.
According to the NBSL rules, children may swim in 2 individual events and 2 relays. We have a very large team so each child will be scheduled to swim at least one event. The coaches determine the placement in an event(s).
Age groups are divided according to the child’s age as of June 1. Groupings are as follows: 6 & under, 8 & under, 10 & under, 12 & under, 14 & under and 18& under. Ages 11 and over swim at least 50 meters (2 laps) and ages 10 and under swim 25 meters (1 lap) in meet events.
Meets can run as late as 9:30-10:30. If you are entered in a later event (such as a relay), please do not leave the meet.
