Head Coach: Emily Rawson (email@example.com)
Assistant Coaches: The Daleview Swim Team hires coaches with significant experience in swimming and coaching, many of whom are college students. The Coaches work with the Swim Team Rep and Swim Team Committee to ensure that the Team activities are safe, fun, and consistent with the Team’s mission.
The coaches are responsible for all activities related to the selection, training, development, and swim meet competition of Swim Team members for participation in MCSL events and other competitive swimming events determined by the Team Rep and the Daleview Swim Team Committee (such as “B” meets and mini meets). The coaches are expected to promote fair competition, inspire excellence in swimming, encourage team member participation in swim team events, and foster the highest level of sportsmanship among team members.
The coaches have sole authority to determine practice strategies and select swimmers to swim in meets. Coach’s policies and decisions are based on years of experience in the sport. Parents and swimmers should recognize that, as in all sports, coaches must often make judgmental decisions. Decisions about final meet line-ups and the make-up of the relay teams are made solely by the coaches. These decisions are based on the times of swimmers in each event and how those compare with the times of the other team members in the same age/event category. The times of swimmers from the opposing teams are also considered. In addition, the coaches can consider such things as practice attendance and performance at practices, and the availability of other opportunities for each swimmer to demonstrate performance and gain experience.
There are numerous swimming meets and events throughout the season, and coaches are expected to provide a significant number of opportunities for each swimmer to participate.
