Training Expectations We have little time to prepare for the league meets, DFAL Championship Meet, and the NCS Championship Meet Expected to be at practice whether it is in the pool or at Dryland practice Failure to meet this requirement without an approved/legitimate reason and prior notification to Coach Ethan or Krista will result in loss of team privileges (i.e. not swimming in a meet, losing a spot on the Varsity team, and possible removal from the team.) Problems and special circumstances are at the discretion of the coaching staff and will be dealt with on an individual basis. It is up to the swimmer to communicate to Coach Ethan on campus if there is a problem or there is a need to miss a team practice, meet or activity.
Meet Procedures Meet line-ups will be posted the day of the meet outside Mr. Schnells classroom Swimmers MUST inform Coach Ethan ASAP if they cannot participate, or are sick prior to a meet (I am on campus: come by, email, call) For away meets swimmers will be informed of the release time and departure time in order to meet the bus. Students are not to leave class until the designated release time. There will be NO student drivers to team meets. All athletes are expected to ride the team bus/car TO and FROM the meets where / when the team bus is provided. We encourage you, the parents to attend the meets and encourage you to help out with timing or the swim desk. Without your support we could not run our meets.
USS Training Policy for year-rounders The following is the official DVHS Swimming and Diving Policy toward USS training and competition during the high school season. Any individual problems with this policy should be discussed with the Coaches ASAP to avoid any problems: Any swimmers that are attending Junior National or Senior National Championships may train with their USS team up through that national level meet. Swimmers entering the Far Western Championship meet MAY enter unattached. All USS swimmers must communicate their individual training plans to Coach Ethan so that there is no conflict with prior training or taper plans. All USS meets, except nationals mentioned above, that fall after the start of our dual meet season must be entered unattached.
