The Lakeside Sharks will take to the waters again this summer!!
Welcome to the 2020 Pawling Swim Team!!!
Head Coach: Liz Filachek
The Pawling Swim team is a relaxed summer team. There is practice five days a week, Monday through Friday, however, no one is required to come to all the practices. We understand that the swimmers are involved with other activities and vacations, so we just ask for you to come to as many practices as you can. The season this year is very short with school getting out late and the championship meet in early August, so we will be starting practices on Monday June 24. Since the swimmers are still on school, practice will be from 6pm-7pm Monday through Friday that week only. There will be no swim practice on July 4th. The following is the summer practice schedule:
Monday June 24- Friday June 28: 6pm-7pm practice
Monday July 1st- Thursday August 1st:
Monday, Wednesday, Friday: 8am-9am
Tuesday and Thursday: 6pm-7pm
This year, we will have four to six meets in addition to championships. All meets will be held on weekdays. Warm-ups are at 1:30 pm but we ask you to arrive at 1:15 so your child can be ready to get into the water at 1:30. The start time for the meets are at 2pm and they are expected to run about three hours. We do not do a uniform team suit, but we do ask that our swimmers wear a solid navy-blue suit to the meets.
Sign-ups for the meets will be done through google docs. An excel spread sheet will be created and shared to the parents via the email you gave when registering your child for the team. You will then go onto the computer and enter your child’s name into the excel sheet for the meet, and there will be a separate sheet for every meet. It takes six to eight hours to make a meet so please sign you child up for the meet at least 48 hours in advance, if not sooner. If you sign your child up within 48 hours of the meet, it will be difficult to add them to the meet so they will not be able to swim as many events.
It takes a lot of people to run a meet smoothly, so we ask all our parents to participate in the meets. For every meet, we will need at least three timers and two parents to line up swimmers for their events. For our home meets, we will need additional volunteers to donate food and run a concession stand, and a parent to collect time sheets from the timers. For every meet, a Google document will be shared with the parents and we ask you to sign up and participate in some way.
The following is the current meet schedule. If there are any changes, you will be notified immediately:
Wednesday July 10th at Freedom park (Away)

We look forward to working with our swimmers and having a great season! We will see you at the end of June!
