Welcome to the East View Patriot Swim Team. The Patriots will be training at the Village Pool in the afternoons from 6:30 to 8:30 am. The pool is located at 370 Village Commons Blvd. Georgetown, TX.
A bus will transport the swimmers from East View HS to the Village Pool and back to school.
Swimming as a sport requires proper technique, strength, and endurance. As such, regular, progressively intense practices are required. All swimmers are expected to attend all regularly scheduled practices and must be enrolled in the athletic period. Remember that this is a school team; participation (attending and swimming) requirement is the same as in the classroom. A student cannot skip swim practice just like a student cannot skip regular school classes like English or Math.
PARENTS are NOT ALLOWED on the pool deck during practice.
Clearly mark all items with swimmer's name
