SWIM MEETS: 

Our goal is to encourage each child to do their best and make personal progress and improvement.  To this end we will participate in a number of swim meets that are focused on individual events.  We encourage participation in as many meets as possible.  Parents will receive meet information in advance and if they would like their children to participate in that specific meet, they must turn in the meet entry and additional fees at the appropriate time in order to be entered into the meet.  A meet calendar with proposed meets will be posted toward the end of the first month of swimming.

PARISI TRAINING: 

This additional training and support will help each athlete to increase their athletic ability. The additional training cost is built into your monthly cost for team membership.

When participating in Parisi Speed School training, athletes MUST wear sneakers. If you are not appropriately dressed, you will not be allowed to participate. Thank you for your understanding.
