If you have four unexcused practices, you will be dismissed from the team for the remainder of the season. Report all injuries to the coach and trainer when they occur so that we can know to help you.
Any violation of the rules will result in some form of disciplinary action. The kind of action will be determined by the seriousness of the infraction. Each situation will be handled on an individual basis. It must be packed in your bag and loaded on the bus by you. Be sure you have everything!
You may be asked to help the coaches and managers with extra equipment. Antything you are asked to load on the bus, you will unload and be responsible for both at the meet and the return home. Be sensible when you choose to bring food with you on a trip. You will return with the team unless prior arrangements have been made with the coaching staff.
A note must be in your coaches hand before we leave Blue Valley West. In other sports, an athlete is not allowed to compete in events outside of high school during the season, let alone practice with an outside team.
Senior Andrew Hornung has been currently practicing strictly with his club team. He will start practicing with the team Dec. Hornung is doing some more intense training before he starts high school with his club team, so that he can get ready for a few non-high school swim events. The new law change also brings about new requirements.Hugh McPherson 2018 Kansas 6A State 100 Freestyle Champion
While the new change will help those that compete on a high level to push themselves, it could be a disadvantage to those that are not on that same level. Hornung believes that the new change is helpful, but may have some drawbacks. The change also gives a swimmer the option to opt out of specific meets and swim specifically state after they qualify for it.
Junior Meg Stanley, a year-round club swimmer is somewhat skeptical on the new change. Because there is no separation between club and high school there is no transition time. Only time will tell whether this new rule will contribute in a positive way.
