WHICH PRACTICES SHOULD WE COME TO?
The coach would like all swimmers to attend at least 3 practices a week. Please plan to use a combination of the morning and evening practices to try to get 3 practices in each week. Wednesday practice is especially important to recap the prior evening’s meet and to see what each group needs to work on for the next week.
The Haddon Hall Homeowner Association Pool Rules state that no child(ren) 12 and under may use the pool without adult supervision. Parents MUST remain with their 12 and under child(ren) inside the pool area during practice times OR assign another adult (NOT the coach) to watch their child(ren.)
Parents should remain out of the way of the coaches at all times. This affords the coaches the maximum amount of time with the swimmers. The Swim Team must obey all Haddon Hall Homeowners Association Pool Rules at every practice and meet.
There will be times when practice will need to be cancelled for a variety of reasons, including: thunder, lightning, water contamination, etc. If it is raining, without thunder or lightning, practice will likely be held. Older swimmers who attend practice without an adult should know what to do if practice is suddenly called off. Please discuss this possibility with your swimmer and devise a plan. A Hammerhead coach or board member will stay with any swimmer who is unable to get a ride. It is the swimmer’s responsibility, however, to approach the coach or board member for assistance if needed.
