You do not need to be a champion swimmer to join; we cater for all abilities. We want to see how well you swim not how fast you swim. Once we have seen you swim, you will be put in a squad that suits your ability. • Elementary School can come up to three times a week. It’s ok if you come once or twice, we encourage to be good at lots of different sports • Middle School can come either three times a week for those still learning, or five times a week for those who have been swimming a long time and are ready to train for performance. • High School can come either three times a week for those new to the sport or five times a week for those who are keen and ready to train hard Want to know more about the club, go to our web site. www.sailfish.ism-online.org/ Any Questions? e-mail Coach Andy firstname.lastname@example.org
