Inclement Weather Policy for Practices

Any weather related cancellations will be posted on Overhill’s Facebook page and e-mails will be sent to everyone on the team roster.  Please check those places prior to leaving for practice if the weather is questionable.  Parents are also free to use their own judgement on the weather.

Inclement Weather Policy for Meets

If the weather is so bad prior to the meet and is unlikely to clear in time to hold the meet, Facebook and e-mail will be used to send out a cancellation notice.  However, if there is any chance to get the meet in, we will likely not cancel it.  In those cases, any cancellation decisions will be made and announced at the meet.

Swimming events at swim meets

We are going to try something a little different this year with the line-up.  Swimmers will be allowed to pick one individual event they want to swim each week.  Their second individual event will be selected by the coaches.  Swimmers can pick the same event each week or mix it up.  Event selections are due to Kim no later than the end of practice on Monday each week.  There will be a sign-up sheet available at practices.  Late requests will not be accepted as Kim is required to turn in the line-up by Tuesday morning each week.  Please have your swimmers get their requests in on time.

Conflicts with swim & dive meets

Divers should let Mandi know if they will miss any dive meets.

For swimmers, there will be a sign-up sheet posted at the pool to mark any dates your swimmer will miss.  It’s easier to add your swimmer to the line-up than it is to take him or her out.  If there are any questionable dates, please mark your swimmer as missing.  We can always add him or her to the line-up.  Please mark these dates no later than the Monday before the meet your swimmer will miss.  If there are any last minute issues that will cause your swimmer to miss a meet, please let both Scott ( and Tom ( know as soon as possible.

Meet worker requirements

All families are required to work a minimum of 3 halves (for most jobs) during the five regular season meets.  Jobs can be worked over any combination of meets or during a single meet if multiple family members are available to work.  Swimmers are not permitted to work meets.  Swimmers whose families do not fulfill this requirement will not be permitted to participate in any Finals meets.  Job descriptions are available below.

The one exception to the 3 halves requirement is for coordinating hospitality at A Swimming Finals.  We need two families to volunteer to cover this job.  If you take this job, you do not have to work during the regular season meets.  Please contact Scott or Tom is you are interested.  First two families to volunteer get the job.

We NEED parents to be officials at meets.  Training is required (unless you are already USA Swimming or Y certified), but no experience is necessary.  If you are interested in being an official and need training, please get with Scott or Tom as soon as possible.  If you are a former swimmer, you are strongly encouraged to work officials positions at meets.  Our swimmers need officials to point out any stroke infractions during the regular season so the coaching staff can make corrections.  This allows our swimmers to have successful finals meets and avoid being DQ’d at those meets for stroke infractions.

Sign-up sheets for jobs will be posted at the pool.
