We would like to welcome you to our Stealth Swim Season. When we are gearing up for the season of competition for the Stealth Swim Team we are excited about all the new members we are getting each year, as well as seeing our returning veterans.
Dry land practice typically starts in May with core and strengthening exercises. During these couple of weeks we will go over swim terms, strokes and drills that we will be using throughout the season, as well as how to read a pace clock. The TEAM meets Monday – Friday from 5-6 pm. Swimmers will need to wear tennis shoes and comfortable clothes, bring a towel and a water bottle to each and every practice.
Please remember April 30th is the last day for signing your child up for the Stealth Swim Team. Water practice will also begin in May from 5-6 pm and all Swimmers are to come prepared wearing a swim suite.
Each practice will start with approximately 15 minutes of dry land exercises before entering the water. Please have your child arrive 5 to 10 minutes early so they can get ready for practice. Beginning the first Tuesday in June practice will be from 7:30 to 8:30 am Monday - Friday. Please have your child here on time so they are ready and get the most out of each practice.
VOLUNTEERS ARE ALWAYS NEEDED! If you have a good knowledge of the computer; we need a couple of people to score and keep our swim records. There is a free training and we will give you the dates as soon as they are released.
We do ASK each team parent to volunteer some time to either help time, score, help keep our swim records, stroke and turn judge or help keep the kids in a designated area so that we can have them ready when it is time to hit the blocks.
All of the TEAM’s swim meets will be on Mondays and Thursdays beginning the first Monday or Thursday in June. The team is scheduled for at least 2 B meets and 2 A meets at the City of Sumter Aquatics Center. You will receive a schedule when you sign your child up (if available). All meets start at 6 pm with warm ups at 5:00 pm. The cost for swim team is $60.00 per season and due upon registration. The City Swim Meet is typically scheduled the second or third weekend of July.
There is a deadline for each year to attend the Columbia League Swim Meet so all participants are asked to prepare to sign up and pay no later than the 15th of June and the cost is $25.00 per swimmer.
