SWIMMERS . . . TAKE YOUR MARK . . .
For full information on the Seminole Swim & Dive Team, including practice schedule, team handbook, meets and volunteering, social events, fees and more, please visit our TeamUnify site.
In order to join the Seminole Swim & Dive team, you must first be a member of Seminole Pool & Tennis Club. Click here for information on Pool membership. For those who want to join swim team, swimmers must be able to safely swim one length of the pool using a rhythmic breathing pattern without stopping. At the start of each swim & dive season, we offer an opportunity for swimmers to try this out while a coach is present to see if swim team is a good match. For dive team, divers must be able to do an approach and a front dive. For all of our young swimmers and divers, we recommend lessons (included with your membership) to continue to build skills.
Swimmers and Divers do not have to compete in any meets if they do not wish to do so, however, in order to swim or dive in the All-City meet at the end of the season, each swimmer or diver must have competed in three dual meets.
Swim meets are held rain or shine, searing heat or bone-chilling cold. The cancellation policy for meets is the same as it is for the pool (and most other activities) – severe weather warnings or lightning will delay or possibly cancel a meet.
Team costs include the team registration fee (see below) & a booster fee of $35 per family to cover social events planned for the summer.
|Number of Team Members per Family||Team Registration Fee|
|4 & greater||Additional $70 per team member|
The team fees are the same for either the swim or dive team; however, if your child chooses to do both teams you don’t double the registration fee, an additional $50 is added for the second team.
Why 26 ½ Meters?
Opinions vary as to why, but Seminole Pool is very unique at 26 1/2 meters long instead of the traditional 25 yards or 25 meters. We are proud of this fact! Nobody trains harder than Seminole swimmers!
Below is a table to convert Seminole times to a standard 25 yard or 25 meter time. For example, to convert a time FROM Seminole TO a 25 meter pool you would multiply the time by 0.9298. So, the pool record in the 15-18 boys “100+ meter” Freestyle of 57.92 s would be a 53.85 s time in a 25 meter pool, and a 48.25 s time in a 25 yard pool.
