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 2018 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.  
What is the time and location of the parent meeting date and time TBA
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, 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. 
What are the school and district academic requirements for eligibility?

o Must have a 2.0 GPA at grade checks, Friday March 9 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 game)
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)
