The SOMO Swim Team is a competitive swim program with the focus on improving swimming speed, endurance and technique. It is not a recreational or “learn to swim program”. Healthy athletes with current medicals on file who have passed their 15th birthday are invited to try out for the swim team. Athletes are required to have a comfort level with the water and be able to get into the pool and swim two lengths (in some “free-style” fashion). Athletes must make a commitment to attend all practices, and at least two sanctioned qualifying events  (to include our home swim meet on Sat. May ? , and must commit to working with the coaching staff to increase stamina, increase event distances and increase/improve stroke techniques. Spaces on the team are limited due to facility and coaching staff limitations. Due to the limited number of team spaces available, athletes who wish to participate on the swim team must commit to this sport as their first priority. Spaces on the team will be given first to those athletes who make this commitment and are not training in another sport.  Athletes must attend the first two tryout/orientations: Saturday March 5 and 12 at the Stone Ridge School in Bethesda. Details about the swim team program will be shared at these orientations. The regular season training will be at the Stone Ridge School pool in Bethesda.  Practice will be on Saturdays beginning March 4, 2017 from 12-2 PM.  There will be no practice on Saturday April 15, 2017. Our SOMO Regional Swim Meet will be on May 20, 2017 at Stone Ridge Pool. No practice will take place on Memorial Weekend (May 27, 2017).  We will are working on finding a facility for a final practice on June 3, 2017 before Summer Games, June 9-11, 2017.
