Try Outs: Tuesday, August 15, 6:00-7:00 pm, MSU Sanderson Center. All Swimmers must bring suits and goggles and be able to swim one lap freestyle and backstroke across the pool safely and efficiently to make the team.

Practice Times: will be Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday, 6:00-7:00 pm.

Team Rules: Try to be 10 minutes early for every practice. Be respectful. Be honest. Have fun. Learn as much as you can every day. Give it your best. All boys need a tight fitting jammer suit. (No board shorts or T-shirts swimming) All girls must have a one piece suit. (No 2 piece swim suit) All swimmers need goggles every day. Parents need to pick up kids on time right when practice is over.

Season Duration:  We will start Tuesday, August 15th, and train through September and race in the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools’ League State Championship. We will have a meet September 20th with times TBA.

Lane Space for Training: Do to lane space availability at the Sanderson Center we might need to cap the team at 20-30 swimmers. We will see what the turn out for tryouts is and go from there. We will more than likely only have 3-4 lanes at this time with all that is going on at the pool.
