Parent Meeting Information

PARENT AND ATHLETE INFORMATION

Meeting Date 11/11 at 5:30 PM in High School LGI

Things to know:

Each swimmer must purchase a competition suit. Cost is $45. One competition swim cap will be provided. Any replacements will cost $10.

Warm ups and Parkas will be issued to the athletes for use during the season. These must be returned in good condition at the end of the season. Damaged or lost items will be charged to the athlete (or family) for replacement.

Away meets are usually a LONG drive. Your swimmer will need snacks and fluids for the trip to the meet. We will stop at a fast food place to eat after away meets. We will be returning late from away meets.

You are welcome to attend away meets. Please ask if you need directions.

We ALWAYS need help timing home meets. Parents get great views of the meet as timers. Please volunteer to help our home meets. Let me know if you can help.

We like to hold team dinners once a week during the season. Typically this involves some sort of pasta or complex carbohydrate main course, drinks and dessert. We always need people to offer something to these dinners. Please contact me to sign up to contribute. If you would like to host the entire team in your home for a dinner that is also welcomed.

We as coaches find that these athletes often times have not eaten or hydrated properly in preparation for practices and meets. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE promote good breakfasts, lunches and water intake.

Communication to the parents and athletes typically will occur through the Remind app. To join simply send a normal text to 81010 with the message @jeaste. When I send out a message it will show up on your phone as a text message. You can also email me easterj@shawanoschools.com.

We have a team Facebook page which is Shawano Hawks Swim. Feel free to post photos of the team during the season.

All practice and meet schedules are posted on the Shawano Schools website under the Activities column and the Boys Swim tab.
