EDINA SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING TEAM: 2020 Program goals
Bring out the best synchronized swimmer in each athlete
We understand the demands placed on student athletes who want to succeed in all areas and we will do everything that we can to help you balance these demands and reach academic and synchronized swimming excellence.
Being at your designated practice when you are scheduled is key in the sport of synchronized swimming. Our sport is directly affected when team members are missing. Saturdays will be specifically designated as learning the routine day, we will do our best to work with weekly conflicts when scheduling the day. Please fill in all conflicts on the “time conflict” sheet.
Swimmers are to stay at all meets until the visitors leave. To participate in a meet the swimmer must be at practice the day before and in attendance at school. To be considered “in attendance” you must be in school the first four periods of the day or the last four periods of the school day. If you are out of school for a “school related purpose” than you are considered in attendance.
