SJHS Swim Team Start-up & Try-outs
by C Sullivan - Tuesday, September 1, 2015
The Greyhounds swim team begins practices Tuesday September 8 and completes the season on December 16th. There are ten scheduled practices each week (M-F) with morning swims starting at 7:30 and after-school swims at 3:30. New athletes are always welcome: you can join to compete or join just to keep fit. Athletes are asked to attend any three scheduled practices each week. (More if you so choose)
Tryout week runs Sept 14-18. For athletes that have other team committments early in the season new athletes will be accepted until October 15th. For athletes wishing to tryout earlier, come to any of the scheduled practices.
There are four teams that compete for SJHS: Junior (Grades 9-10) and Senior (Grades 11-12) Boys and Girls. All four teams train in the SJHS pool located beneath the Gym on the first floor. Lockers and showers are available in the pool change rooms.
Team Captains for 2015: Robert Scott (Sr-B), Emily Whitcomb (Sr-G), Dennis Emerson (Jr-B), Victoria Ruigrok (Jr-G). The team is coached by Charlie Sullivan and Patti Macmackin. ( Click for Team Web Site.)
