Swim & Dive Team
The Lightning Swim & Dive Club welcomes all swimmers & divers to join the fun! Our goal is to provide our middle school students with an opportunity to improve their overall health and strength while improving their technique. We compete against regional and state teams in a fun and nurturing environment. We are a team comprised of students from many local swim & dive groups sponsored by CSAS. If you can swim 50m freestyle, you are eligible for the team!
The season runs from late September through January. Swimmers can be a member of, and practice with, any local swim program while participating in our meets but athletes must either practice with a year round team or join CSAS practices. Official team practices will begin October 1, 2018 at the McCallie pool on Monday, Tuesday & Thursday from 7-8:30pm and Saturday 10:00-11:30am. Athletes are required to attend a minimum of two practices per week. Register for team practices at www.mccgpsaquatics.com. Bring tennis shoes and a water bottle for dry land exercises, as well as a swim suit, towel and goggles. Optional practice equipment includes fins, kick-board and swim cap.
Please make sure your athlete has the all the pertinent information and required health form uploaded to PRIVIT prior to the first practice. https://tinyurl.com/NPPrivit **Complete the forms found at the bottom of this page and return to Mrs. Myers prior to October 1.
There is no LAC fee but athletes will pay for practices, purchase a team suit, CSAS swim cap for the team meets and NP swim cap for the invitationals. There will be an occasional meet fee, indicated on schedule below.
We look forward to a great season!
