ATOM - DOC Powered By Docstoc
Aquatic Team of Mecklenburg

  Our aim is not to produce a champion,
   but to provide an atmosphere where
        champions are inevitable.

However, swimming is a means to an end…
 to build self-confidence, self-discipline,
      integrity, and courage for life.

Being a part of the team means we expect all swimmers to swim at the scheduled meets as
regularly as possible. If the child can not swim at a meet, you must let the coach know. Senior
swimmers must be in good standing (i.e. attend practice consistently) to be eligible to attend
meets. If the swimmer has not attended enough practices and can’t swim at the meet, the coach
will let the swimmer know ahead of time. Once a swimmer is registered to swim at a meet, their
account will be billed regardless as to whether or not they actually attended the meet.
