Girls Swim & Dive - Spring 2021
Girls' Swim & Dive for the 20-21 school year is over. Let's hope for a somewhat normal fall 2021 season!
If your child is interested in joining the team, please contact Darren (email address to the left) to be added to the mailing list. Athletes should reach out to Coach Jen via GroupMe - firstname.lastname@example.org as that is how Coach Jen will communicate with athletes.
Full notes and previous pre-season communication can be found on this website.
Who knows what will be true this year, but in the past -
Girls need 10 practices before the first swim meet (WIAA rules). YOU CANNOT GET IN THE WATER UNLESS YOUR PAPERWORK IS IN (see link in upper right corner for information on paperwork and don't forget to pay via schoolpay for your ASB card and supporting the swim & dive team).
If you can't get your child's physical in time, consider the Ingraham Teen Health Center https://ingrahamhs.seattleschools.org/services/teen_health_center. If you are having trouble uploading your physical form or any other glitches, please contact Maria Medina, Ingraham Athletic Secretary, email@example.com or Athletic Director Traci Huffer firstname.lastname@example.org.
Follow link for State times (we are 3A) - full list of times for Metros, Districts and State for 2019 available below. 2021 qualifying times are not yet available. This will be updated once available.
Place holder in case there are formal meets in fall 2021
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. Swimmers are expected to purchase a team suit and t-shirt. Scholarships available if needed.
