2022-23 Middle School Girls Swim

Hi Parents,

6th, 7th and 8th grade Girls Swim will be happening this Fall in November, December and part of January. Girls swim is great because you are learning to be a better swimmer while being with your friends. It is the best free swim lessons you could ever have. Swim team can also lead to job opportunities in High School like becoming a lifeguard or swimming lessons teacher. We will compete with other Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls teams. You will learn about our swim meets and how to be successful. Swimming is an individual sport. YOU are competing with yourself. You are always trying to swim faster than the time you swam before and with better form.

We will be starting to practice at the High School on Thursday November 3rd. We will be hosting a team meeting in the MS cafeteria afterschool on Wednesday Oct. 26th. We will meet from 3:00-3:30 pm that day. If you have a team party from a fall sport you can attend both on that day.

Please complete all necessary paperwork, which can be picked up in the office or from Mrs. Schmidt. If you have been out for a sport during the first quarter, your paperwork is on file.

NEEDS-- You will want to wear a one piece swimsuit so that it doesn't fall off when you are diving into the pool or swimming fast.

You will want a swim cap so that all of your hair isn't in your face while swimming.

Goggles are required so that you are not running over other swimmers while swimming. Please plan to buy 2 pair of goggles so that when one breaks you will have a 2nd pair. Goggle breakage is totally normal and annoying. Goggles with a bungee cord are my favorite because they let in the least amount of water.

Hope to see you on Wednesday Oct. 26th.


Coach Jen Dickman
