2019 Swim and Dive Schedule

Mark your calendars - the 2019 season begins on Monday, August 26th. Girls need 10 practices before the first swim meet (WIAA rules). 

Practice Schedule - practices will be at MEADOWBROOK pool (by Nathan Hale - 10515 35th Ave NE, Seattle, WA 98104) until further notice; we will arrange carpools from the pool to school, once school begins. We hope to return to Madison for the end of the season (currently scheduled to reopen on 10/6), so stay tuned.

MEET RESULTS

Frequently Asked Questions -- Swimming

(updated Spring 2019)
 
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 2019 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, or pretzels.  If  each person can bring enough for 10 girls, we need 4 people to provide each item.  
 
Date and time of the parent meetings?
Check the IABC for details.
 
How will athletes and parents receive communication about last minute changes regarding meet schedules, transportation, etc?
We will use a variety of methods - this calendar, FB, Instagram and emails to the swimmers. 
 
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, we will miss some school. The coach is responsible for excusing the absence. For meets at Madison, girls stay in class until 3:15.
 
What are the school and district academic requirements for eligibility?

Eligibility/Grades:
o Must have a 2.0 GPA at grade checks, Friday March 8 is first check
o Cannot have 2 E’s in one grade check
o Must have minimum 10 practices in (we will have total of 14 practices before 1st meet)
o Must be in ALL classes game day ( please no Dr. appointments game days if possible)
o No tobacco, drugs, or alcohol before during or after games or on school premises. Automatic 2 game suspension.

Player Eligibility/Game Suspensions: 5-week suspension if a player does not make grades!

Will there be cuts made after tryouts?

This sport is no-cut (ALL athletes who tryout make the team),
 

What is the usual practice time and locations?

Helene Madison Pool (once it reopens - more details regarding the 2019 season will be posted when known)

Monday - Thursday:  6:45 am - 8:30 am & Friday 7:00 am - 8:30 am

Diving! Get started now

If you have ever considered diving, now is the time to get started. Coach Ed Artis works with students throughout the year, not just during our fall season (but please make sure that you are complying with WIAA rules around coaching - we can help you if you have a question). Practice times are as follows (expect that the first 1/2 hour is dryland):

Tuesday - Rainier Beach pool: 6:30-8:00 pm.

Wednesday - Queen Anne pool: 6:30-8:00 pm.
