Lacamas HeadHunters Swim Team

OUR PHILOSOPHY:  It is our goal to provide each swimmer with a consistent swim program that will help them become a lifelong swimmer.  Swimming is not focused on one meet or one time goal; we believe that doing the right things all the time is better than over-focusing on one meet or time standard.  We coach every swimmer; whether the athlete is in lane 1 or lane 8, they should expect the same time and attention from our coaching staff.  Swimmers are to do all of their training with our coaching staff; we do not allow swimmers to work with coaches outside of our staff, including parents.  If you want to coach your swimmer, please choose another team.  It is ok for swimmers to swim with another team when they are out of town on vacation.  Let our staff know if you need help finding a team in this case.  Parents, please watch practice from the bleachers and do not speak to the coaches or the swimmers during practice.  At swim meets, cheer for your swimmer and leave the coaching to the coaches.

Swimmer must tryout to join the team; come to the practice time for your swimmer’s age group to tryout:

Practices/Tryouts:  Swimmers are to arrive on the deck 5 minutes before they are scheduled to get in the water; this time is to be used for pre-swim stretching, socializing, using the restroom, getting equipment ready, etc.  It is expected that every swimmers is ready to go for the warm-up send off.

Team Website: for practice & meet schedules, etc: http://lacamasheadhunters.com/

Bring proper equipment– Team Swim Cap, goggles, fins, kickboard, buoy and mesh equipment bag for all swimmers, plus a swim snorkel for swimmers 11& older.  Swimmers in Junior A, Senior A, & Senior B are also required to have paddles, and a parachute or dragsox. Between Swim Outlet http://www.swimoutlet.com, Swim 2000 http://www.Swim 2000.com, and the front desk, you can find the equipment your swimmer needs.  Boys need a suit for practice and a fitted racing suit for all swim meets.  Girls need a one piece suit for practices and another tight fitting one-piece suit for all swim meets.  At meets, swimmers can only wear suits that are Black, Green, or Black & Green.  It is best not to wear the same suit for practice and meets, because swimming in a racing suit at practice makes it fit too loose for effective competition. Purchase your team neon green swim cap when you register at the front desk. REQUIRED FOR ALL SWIM MEETS!!!

Swim Meet Information: The Meet Schedule is posted online before each swim season. This schedule can be viewed on the website at www.lacamasheadhunters.com.  A meet sign up email will be sent to each family before the sign up deadline for each meet.  Parents are responsible for replying to this email by the deadline on Sign Up Genius.  The coach will then enter the swimmer into events and subtract meet fee charges from the meet fee account.

Communication for the team: Communication is all online or via email:   Feel free to email your coaches if you have questions, concerns or a great idea: headhunterswimcoach@gmail.com.
