FOR THE SWIMMER:
– Your swimmer must be able to swim at least one length of the pool, UNASSISTED.
– Swimmers must be at least 6 years of age to participate and no older than 18 years of age.
– Daily practices are recommended. The more you practice, the faster you will swim, and the better swimmer you will be. Practices will consist of stroke work (all strokes), laps, dive-ins, and some days, fun games.
– Swim meets require the swimmer/or parents signing up at least two days before any scheduled meet. (The exceptions are the Relays and the Championships. These meets require that you sign up at least 10 days prior to the meet.) The meet sign up book is located at the front guard desk every day. If your child is signed up and then unable to attend the meet, you must call the pool at 724.941.9944 and inform one of the coaches ASAP.
CHAMPIONSHIPS: The South Hills Swim League Championship Meet is by invitation only. The fastest swimmers during the swim season will be invited to compete. It is an honor to be asked, but all swim team members are invited to attend and cheer our team on!
It is important to attend meets that are held at other swim clubs. It is always a good experience to try out other pools. Directions will be available at the front desk and all locations are in the South Hills area and easy to find.
FOR THE PARENTS:
The swim team at Rose Garden is managed by volunteer parents and dedicated coaches. We have many committed parents who keep the swim team functioning, but it is unfair for a few to do all the work. In order for your child to be on the swim team, we are asking parents to take a turn or two helping at a variety of duties at a home meet and an away meet. There is training for all the parent positions. Parent volunteer sign-up and list of duties needed for every meet can be found in the meet sign up book.
Rose Garden Swim Team is a TEAM and it needs all its swimmers and parents to actively participate. Get involved and show your support of our swimmers and our pool.
