Swimming General Information

  

We are excited to share information for the 2017-2018 swimming season which will begin in August for students in grades 9-12.

 

About Meridian Swimming

Meridian swimming is offered to Meridian high school students only. Tryouts are required to assess skill-level as this is a competitive sport with a minimum skill-level required to participate. If you missed the tryouts in February, please contact the coach to set-up a skill assessment. Although Meridian has experienced three successful years of swimming, the program is continuing to grow and welcomes experienced high school swimmers.
 
Participation on the swim team includes an expectation that parents will commit to serving as a volunteer throughout the season. Parents are needed to serve in many roles: lane timers, tent set up, snack coordinator, social coordinator, etc.
