Dear Swim Parents/Guardians:

Re: Boys MS School, 6th, 7th & 8th grade


We are pleased to have your child participate in the Menomonie Middle School Boys swim program.  Swim practice will begin on Tuesday, January 25th with an informational meeting in the cafeteria. Please pick up your student by 3:45 on Wednesday, January 26th the students will start practice at the HS pool. 


Swim practice will begin at the HS pool on Wednesday, January 26th.  Practices will be held after school from 3:15-5:00 M-F. Practices are held at the high school pool field house. Students should take their regular bus to the high school; students who don’t ride a bus or if their bus doesn’t go to the high school should ride the first bus #____  from the middle school to the high school. Our swim season will end March 10th, a meet schedule will be sent home soon with any additional information on Monday, Jan. 31th.


Students who participate in swim must come prepared; here is what one will need to be successful on the MMS Swim team:



  • Swimsuit - students will be in the water each day so more than one suit may be recommended.

  • Swim Cap - swim caps are essential for keeping hair out of your face while you swim. 

  • Goggles - competition goggles are awesome but expensive, make sure you have a pair of swim goggles, facemask goggles do not work.

  • Towel- may seem obvious, but we want to make sure students are prepared :)

  • Optional: Lock for locker - Since we share the pool with the High School Swimmers, we also share the locker room. We suggest that students lock their belongings and take EVERYTHING (including the lock) home with them each night.



All extracurricular paperwork must be completed and returned before the student will be allowed to actively participate in practice. This paperwork includes a physical or an updated physical card, emergency contact card and the Insurance/code form on the back of the MMS Activity Program Rules and Regulations packet.  The $50.00 activity fee should be paid as soon as possible with cash or a check. Checks can be made out to Menomonie Middle School and should be taken to the office. If your child has already participated in athletics this year at MMS all paperwork and fee should have been turned in and your child should be ready to go. If payment is a concern please contact Danna Schmidt, Athletic Coordinator, or Mark Anderson, Assistant Principal.



Thank you
