Southland Swim Team
I wanted to let you all know that your swim team board has been working very closely with the Southland Pool Board. The probability of a swim team for this summer does not look good. While the board is 100% behind the swim team, and wants very much to have a swim team, the challenge is time and guidelines. Therefore, as of right now, we will not have a swim team for the 2020 summer. If this changes in any way and we are able to make it work to still have the team, we will for sure let everyone know. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Swim Team Skill Requirements
The coaching staff will conduct an evaluation of all swimmers to determine if swim team is the right place for your swimmer. The goal of the swim team is to prepare swimmers to compete in meets. We want to make sure that all swimmers are safe in doing so. We are looking to see if the swimmers have basic water survival skills. The coaches will be conducting the evaluations the first week of practice. The criteria we are looking for:
- Your swimmer does not need a flotation device at practice, as in a puddle jumper or water wings, to swim.
- You swimmer can jump off the side of the pool and get back to the side independently and safely.
If the swimmer does not meet the two criteria, the coaches and board will recommend swim lessons this summer.
The Swim Team Board wants to keep all swimmers safe, the number one priority.
