    Practice will begin on September 20th at UT's Student Aquatic Center. We will practice Monday and Wednesday from 7:30-8:30pm.  Swimmers should have their own practice suit, swim cap, goggles and water bottle.  Swimmers MAY NOT get in the pool without all paperwork filled out and submitted to the team. 

    Meets:  

    Volunteering at Swim Meets:  One of the most important ways parents provide support to the team is by working at swim meets. At least one parent/guardian needs to work each meet in which their child swims.  If you have never worked at a swim meet before, don't worry! We will provide on-the-job training! It’s super easy.

    Transportation:  Participants provide their own transportation to and from practices and meets. 

    Team Requirements: Swimmers must be able to swim the length of the pool safely and independently. New swimmers will be evaluated during the first practice on September 20th.

    Swimmers will attend (2) practices a week.  If you are a student who participates in a fall sport that doesn’t allow you to start until after that sport ends, we are happy to work with you, but please let us know.  If you swim with a year-round swim program, you will only need to attend 4 practices in addition to the meets.  

    Swimmers should wear a solid black or solid blue race suit with their BMS Swim Cap to all meets.

    All gear is the responsibility of the swimmer except for their BMS team t-shirt & BMS team cap, which will be provided as part of your registration fee.

    Fees & Registration:  As listed on the registration form, fees for the 2021-2022 season will be $175 per swimmer.  Discounts are available for year-round swimmers and families with multiple swimmers on the team.  (Please e-mail beardenmiddleswimteam@gmail.com for more information.)

    You may bring your registration and fees to the first practice, September 20th or mail to the board member noted on the registration form.  

    If possible, please email me with your child(ren)'s name and their competitive swimming experience (none, summer league, year-round, etc.). No experience is required, but lane space will be limited this year. Knowing experience levels will help Coach Peeden with lane planning.
