There are 5 A meets, 4 B meets, Time Trials, a Relay Carnival and Divisionals during the season. See the Meets and Events page for all the details.
Swim Team Practices begin on Tuesday, May 29 (afternoon) and Monday, June 18 (morning).
News Flash! Pre-Team Practices will run from Monday, June 18 to Thursday, July 19. Practices will be on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays from 6 - 6:45 pm. We're fortunate to have Marine Auroux leading the Pre-Team. She's a teen from the Wheaton Woods team and a seasoned Pre-Team Coach.
The first meet is the Time Trials (June 9) and the last A meet is on Saturday, July 14. The Divisionals meet takes place on Saturday, July 21.
MCSL Swim League
The Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL) is divided into fifteen divisions (A-O) with the fastest teams in Division A. Assignments to a division are based on a team's performance from the previous year.
If everyone pitches in a little, each meet will run smoothly. Sign up to help our team! Approximately 30 adult volunteers from both the visiting and home teams are needed each week to run the Wednesday and Saturday meets. Therefore, it is required that at least one member of each swimmer's family volunteer for at least one event.
An Ounce of Prevention...
We hate to have a swimmer sit out a meet because of a case of swimmer's ear. Visit your local pharmacy to buy Swimmer's Ear drops and squeeze a few drops in your ears after swimming. Please help us prevent infections and let all the kids enjoy every meet!
