Greetings Summer Leaguers,


It is officially summer, and we are a week in and looking strong! The first week always starts a little slow as we do some swimmer safety savvy and find a ‘flow’ to practice. The second week we settle into a rhythm and dial up the challenge, the fun, and the splash factor.


Summer League Notes

  • T-shirts: We are about to put in the T-shirt order for summer league, so make sure your shirt size is correct on your team registration! Make sure it is your swimmer’s size, not a parent’s.

  • Carpool hunting? Checkout the Car->Pool matchmaker map. wasn’t working but now fixed, thanks to Mayank!

  • Summer Gear Checklist - be sure to check the notes on each item. details matter.

  • Arrive ready to swim - Swimmers should arrive with their suit on, ready to swim. Locker room use will be limited to ablutions and changing after practice.

  • No Summer League Parents allowed in the building during practice

  • Dryland is at the back entrance to Juanita Aquatic Center (JAC): Families can drop swimmers off in front of JAC or beside the ‘fieldhouse’. Feel free to walk swimmers over to the dryland area. The 10&u ‘B’ practice will start in the water (then dryland after swimming), so families can drop-off in front of the Pool. Pick-up will always be out front of the pool near the bicycle racks. No parking in the pickup zone.

New to competitive swimming?

There are several gear hurdles that can hold swimmers back:


  • Swimmers will need a competitive swimsuit - No rash guards, swim ‘trunks’, shirts, wetsuits. Suits with ‘extras’ are not legal for meets (swimmers will be disqualified), and they also create a lot of drag, slowing them down.

  • Competitive Swim Goggles - swim lesson goggles aren’t good enough - they will fall off in a good dive. Competitive swim goggles are lower profile and fit inside the eye socket.

  • Everyone wears a cap - kids with long hair, kids with short hair, olympians with no hair!
