Swimmer Responsibilities

Be on time for training

Swimmers must contact their respective coach when missing a scheduled workout. It is the responsibility of the parent/swimmer to ensure the coach is adequately notified of non-attendance well in advance of the scheduled workout to ensure coaches adequately document attendance. This is absolutely necessary when coaches determine eligibility for participation in meets, training camps, awards etc.

Communicate regarding non-availability for swim meets

advise as per "procedures from withdrawing from a meet"

Observe pool rules at all times

parents are not allowed to sit or stand on the pool deck during swim practices

Protect your belongings

Please keep your belongings safe by always bringing them with you -- on deck when you are swimming, or with you for dryland if in a different room or outside.  This applies to all pools/facilities whether you are at practise or at swim meets.  If there are lockers available please use your own secure lock to lock the locker (some facilities actually recommend keyed locks rather than combination locks because of known weaknesses of combination locks (but keys can be easily lost also)). 

No Valuables

swimmers should not bring any valuables (e.g. money, jewellery, electronics) to the pool.

No street shoes on the pool deck


No running on the pool deck or change rooms


Food is not allowed in the pool area

plastic or aluminum water bottles-no glass

Lane rope protocol

do not hang on the lane ropes, it breaks them, and they are expensive.
