For 2019, we will use the Remind app for all weather related and emergency communications. This will include notifications about practice cancellations or meet delays/cancellations. The Remind app will send push notifications via an app or text messages when there are updates for the team.
We are receiving many questions about the minimum distance requirements for the 2019 season and wanted to provide some additional information. TCAL has adopted a new by-law that requires all swimmers to be able to swim 25 yards. As such, we have to be firm on this minimum distance and will provide free evaluations on April 28th.
Coach Taylor is able to be more flexible on the longer requirements as they are intended to ensure that swimmers can manage the practices.
First and foremost, we want to ensure that the evaluations are open for swimmers who need confirmation of the 25 yard requirement, but parents can contact Coach Taylor directly with questions about the longer distances at email@example.com.
Evaluation appointments will be 30 minutes on April 28th (15 minutes of swim time and feedback with parents after).
Evaluations are not required! This is an option for parents who feel that a confirmation of their swimmer’s ability would be helpful.
Coach Taylor will be evaluating swimmers for three things:
Ability to enter the water unassisted
Comfort swimming in deep water
Ability to swim 25 yards without stopping
These evaluations will be at the JCC. If families do not have a JCC membership, they may be able to register for a guest pass but should call the JCC in advance to confirm the JCC’s policies regarding guest passes.
We are looking for team sponsors and offer an incredible advertising opportunity with wide visibility to the Bexley community — learn more here about sponsorship opportunities, tiers of support available and guidance for in kind support. Thank you!
