The Tolleson Tidalwaves Swim Team participates in the MarWest Swim League. In order to participate on the swim team, swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool without assistance and without stopping. Swim team practice is Monday through Thursday from 7:00 a.m.–9:00 a.m. (No practice Memorial Day & Fourth of July). The swim team coaches will help swimmers perfect specific strokes but will not be teaching basic swim skills. Please see the swim lesson schedule above if your swimmer needs basic swim instruction.
The registration cost pays for the league registration, meet medals, and other miscellaneous costs associated with the swim team. Each swimmer must provide an appropriate swimsuit, royal blue in color (not navy blue). Parents/guardians are responsible for all transportation to and from swim practices, meets, and other team events. Parents/guardians must sign a league parent code of conduct and honor that code of conduct at all league events including practices.
The Tolleson Tidalwaves need volunteers to assist with both home and away swim meets. To be successful, we ask that each parent/guardian volunteer work at least one meet. This will ensure we are able to staff the swim meets appropriately. If interested, there will be a parent meeting on Tuesday, May 29 at 8:00 a.m. at the Tolleson Pool. We will be discussing volunteering for swim team in more detail. Practice will start on May 29 as well.
Ages 10 and under will practice from 9:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m.
Ages 11 and over will practice from 10:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. The first swim meet is on Thursday, June 7 at Tolleson.
Swim team registration closes on Monday, May 28 at 12:00 a.m.
