Athletic Physicals and Parent Volunteers

Athletic physicals are currently being accepted by the Athletic Department for the upcoming 2020-2021 school year. Athletes are NOT allowed to try-out unless they have a current physical on file. 

Parent Volunteers: We are in need of parent volunteers to help us provide officials and score keepers for this upcoming season. If you are already certified and/or willing to help, please let Coach Johnson or Coach Molesky know. We can't have a fully functioning swim team without these positions.

Swim-a-thon is set for January 8

We are set for the swim-a-thon on January 8th during our practice time.  We have plans for some things and we need the funds for them to happen.  The swimmers will be swimming laps, that number is unknown, however we will know after their 45 minute window of swim time. 

There are 2 options as to how one can donate:

  1. A flat rate donation - the sponsor chooses the amount
  2. A per lap rate donation - sponsor chooses how much they are willing to donate for each lap swam

Each swimmer was given a $100 goal and many have reached that goal so far and we haven't even swam yet.  We are looking forward to this and hope that it will be a good way to raise funds each year and allow us coaches to get some good and much needed items for the team.

Here is a link to where a donation can and has to be made (it is all done online, no $ changes hands).

Donate HERE!!! You choose the amount you are willing to donate.

Fundraiser - Swim-a-Thon - Jan. 8

Attention to all parents and swimmers:  the John Champe Swim Team is in need of some funds to do some things.  Earlier in the year, we as the coaching staff mentioned the need of raising some funds.  We need funds to pay for Senior Gifts, End-of-Year Banquet and other items (team roster shirts and other items needed to run a swim team).  


We are looking for your help!!!


We are doing a fundraiser and instead of having swimmers get people to buy something or them trying to sell something, we are doing something more beneficial for an athlete; especially a swimmer and that is swim.  


On January 8th, we will be doing the 1st Annual John Champe Swim Team Swim-A-Thon.  Each swimmer will swim as many laps as they can in  45 minute span.  Due to the number of swimmers on the team, we will break the practice up into 2 halves.  Half the team will swim the first 45 minutes while the other half is counting for a swimmer and then they will switch roles for the 2nd half.  We will be asking for all swimmers to participate.


Swimmers were given a fundraising pledge sheet. The pledge sheet also has a goal and that is $100 for each swimmer.  Swimmers should go out and find sponsors.  A sponsor can pledge 2 ways, either a flat rate or per lap.  The flat rate option is where the sponsor pledges an amount no matter how many laps the swimmer swims.  The per lap pledge amount is based upon the number of laps swam.


On the pledge sheet, it explains how one can make the donation.  We have set up a online payment method, much like how one paid the athletic fee.  The name of the payment portal link is Swim Team Fundraiser.  


Pledge sheet is attached.

Team Pictures - Dec. 17

Tuesday Dec. 17 is the date for the team pictures.  Swimmers need to have their warm ups. I know that not all swimmers have gotten warm ups due to the lack having enough.  We have asked swimmers who were told they could keep old warm ups to please assist in helping the few who haven't gotten any.

As for pictures:
I have shared a link that was given to us, but it appears to not being ready yet.  I am going to attach the picture form, which we will have available on Tuesday.  Coach Molesky may have already gotten these and have them, check with her.
On picture day there will be TWO stations taking individual portraits for the composite team picture and the individual pose, as well as ONE photographer taking “publication only” group photos, which are for school use only, to fulfill any Program, Yearbook or School Publications of any kind.  These photos will be shared with the school within 2 business days of picture day; turnaround for composite photos is 15 business days.

Parent Meeting tonight (12/4) at Dulles South after practice

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

 - Transportation

 - 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

 - Sportsmanship
