Coach's Message - updated September 16, 2017

Almost everyone was eligible to compete this week!  All the girls swam hard against the very tough Lions.  We had 4 athletes qualify for districts and 13 qualify for metros.  All this on a week where I consistently heard about how tired and sore the ladies are.  I really love the dedication and intensity I am seeing everyday in the pool.  On Fridays I am dedicating the last 15 minutes of practice to helping individuals on what they feel like they need.  Please come ask me, I want to make these girls stronger, tougher and better tactitions of their swimming.

More soon!

Frequently Asked Questions -- Swimming

(updated Fall 2014)
What equipment and/or uniform is needed for each athlete for swimming?

Swimmers will need to provide their own swim suit and goggles for practice. An Ingraham swim cap will be given to everyone on the swim team. We will also be ordering team suits during the first weeks of practice. Buying a team suit is recommended, but not required.

Will the team be raising money? If so what will the fundraisers be and how will the money be used?
Not likely for 2017 but stay tuned....
Are there volunteer opportunities available for me to help the team?
At the home meets it is our responsibility to provide timers.  We typically need 12 timers (2 per lane), 1 head timer, and 1 starter.  
In addition, we ask parents to provide snacks for the IHS team.  There are about 40 team members.  The suggested snack items are: fruit, carrots, pretzels, water & gatorade.  If  each person can bring enough for 10 girls, we need 4 people to provide each item.  
What is the time and location of the parent meeting?
September 7th, 2017 - 7:00 pm
Ingraham Auditorium
How will athletes and parents receive communication about last minute changes regarding games schedules, transportation, rainouts, etc?
we will keep this calendar updated and also attempt to keep the Facebook group Ingraham Girls Swimming updated
Is there a website available that lists game schedules, standings, etc?


Will the athletes miss any class time due to away games? If so, how is that situation coordinated between teachers and the athletic department?
Due to time constraints at all the public pools in Seattle, yes we will miss some school.  We are lucky  to have all but 1 dual meet at Madison.  That lets the girls stay in class until 3:15.  We will have early release at 12:45 when we go to Bainbridge.  We don't yet have a schedule for metros, districts and state so stay tuned
