What are the requirements to join the Fins? If you are a member of the club, at least 5 years old by May 31st, can swim the length of the pool and a returning Fallston Fins team member you can join the Fallston Fins. Every child will get a chance to compete in the meets and compete against themselves to try to drop a little time off their personal best. The coaches will work with all the age groups to improve each swimmer’s existing strokes and teach additional strokes each swimmer has yet to master. It is expected that all swimmers attend at least three meets during the swim season.
An additional requirement to join the Fins is participation from all swimmers’ parents. Families are required to volunteer to work two meets for each swimmer on the team. Volunteer assignments include concessions, timer, runner and stroke & turn officials, etc. This summer, for each swimmer on the team, you will be expected to sign up for two volunteer positions during the regular season. Ask most swim team parents and they will tell you “working the deck” gets you closer to the action and makes the meet go faster. It takes a huge number of volunteers to run the meet and every parent volunteer makes an important contribution to the running of the meet. Families will no longer need to contribute to concessions, it is part of the swim team fee.
Please note that for the 2020 season we are only able to accept returning swimmers. We hope to be able to accept new team members again for the 2021 season!
