Wednesday December 11:
Sorry for the short notice of this, but with the holidays and the fact that we had to spread the tryouts over a span of 2 weeks due to # of days we get to practice, I forgot to post this.
Some of you may have attended the Parent Meeting that was held at the school during one of the tryout dates (this was held by the Athletic Director), so if you attended that meeting; you do not need to attend this one. We will be holding a meeting this evening after practice at Dulles south in the stands. It shouldn't take long, but it has to be given and offered. Again, if you attended the meeting held by the AD a few weeks ago, you do not need to attend.
What we will be talking about:
- Introduction of coaches
- Expectations (Team behavior & Parents)
- Parent Communication
- Student Handbook
- Lettering requirements
- Activity Fee
- Study Hall
- Team Rules
- Booster Club
- Concessions & Ticket help (other sports - a way to help raise funds for the team)
- Website for info
- Practice Schedule & Times
The day has come for trying out for the John Champe Swim Team.
Be certain that you have fully registered for try outs with the Athletic Department: this means that your sports physical has been turned in, you have registered online and submitted your Emergency Card, Concussion, Parental Consent and Training Rules. If you have not completed all of the said things above, you will not be allowed to enter the pool until you have.
Tonight's tryout is at 6:30-8:00, but swimmers must be there 30 minutes prior to start time to be ready to go. So, have your suit, your goggles, swim cap and water ready to go for each day of tryouts. Each swimmer should be ready to enter the pool 15 minutes prior to start time.
Tomorrow/s tryout starts at 7:30-9:00, again be at the facility 30 minutes prior & ready 15 minutes prior to start time.
