Swim Practice Times (Monday through Friday)
Asamai's Group (Morning Practice): 5:45 am (sharp!) to 7:30 am
Tijmen's and Ray's Groups (Afternoon Practice): 2:00 pm to 4:30 pm

AM Weight Practice (MWF)
Tijmen's and Ray's group will have morning weights two to three times per week. Athletes report to the weight room at 6:00 am. Boys should wear workout clothes including closed toe shoes.

Volunteer Opportunities
Many hands make light work. The girls and boys water polo teams hosts the girls CIF in February. This is our big fundraiser so we ask everyone be involved. (If CIF takes the event somewhere else, we are back to selling candy, christmas trees, etc. to raise money. Don't go back to that! CIF is more fun and much easier.) Remember to sign up for 2 shifts.

Sign Up for Girls CIF (http://signup.com/go/gCgozzg)

For swim season, many of the team's expenses are funded by income generated by the snack bar. A group of parents in conjunction with the girl's team run a snack bar at each home meet. This is a whole team effort. You can help by committing to work at least 2 two-hour shifts for the seasn. (The link to sign up for snack bar will be posted as soon as it becomes available.)

Swim Meet Results

Team Dinners
One of the many fun events during swim season is the weekly team dinner! It is a long standing tradition. Team dinners usually take place the night before a league swim meet at one of the boy's house. The dinners are sometimes potluck, and sometimes the boys are asked to bring a monetary dondation. More info will be entered on the calendar as it becomes available.

NEGU -- Team Volunteer

NEGU - Never Ever Give Up For the 2018 swim season, the IHS Swim Coaches have decided that it would be a good idea for our amazing team to volunteer and give back to an amazing cause.

NEGU (aka Jessie Rees Foundation) was created by 11yr old Jessie Rees after being diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor to help care for kids battling cancer. Although she lost her battle with cancer, her vision to care for sick kids and their family has continued to grow to helping kids all around the world.

The following are the dates and times for our opportunity to volunteer at NEGU:

Saturday March 3 @ 10am
Saturday March 31 @ 10am
Saturday April 7 @ 10am *Special Event - Jessie's Birthday Party
Saturday April 21 @ 10am

Each volunteer opportunity will be about an hour to an hour and 15mins long. To sign up please use the following link NEGU Volunteer Sign-up. Parents interested in volunteering please contact Coach Asami as space will be made available a few days before the event date depending on how many swimmers sign-up.
