  • Practices: Up to five days a week of team practice with an experienced, professional coach

All swimmers MUST be members in good standing of the Eichler Club (no guests or pending/waitlisted members).  All swimmers must be registered, paid swimmers with the Eichler Gators to practice and compete with the team.  Sorry, we do not prorate the amount if a swimmer does not attend all practices or meets. To keep this fun, we also need plenty of parental/guardian help.

Parent/Guardian Responsibility Acknowledgement

Eichler Gators Swimming is fun for our kids, but it functions 100% on the hard work of its members.  Meets, social events and other Gator activities function through the diligent parents/guardians of the swimmers in the pool.  All families must work at least five (5) shifts at four (4) different meets as well as work social events (a total of 9-10 shifts).  The minimum 9 shifts must include 2 shifts at our practice meet and 1 shift at Champs. The jobs are easy and are a very fun way to be part of the Eichler community. Job signups happen through SwimTopia (this site), where you have options once you have registered.  

Families with lengthy summer travel plans or unique hardships that could hinder completion of 9 job shifts should contact the Swim Team Chairs or the Gator Jobs Coordinator before registering to make make special arrangements. Please understand that such exemptions are rare and will not excuse a family from fulfilling at least some team jobs.

If you are unwilling or unable to work at swim meets, social events or other Eichler Gator events, please do not register for Eichler Gators Swim Team.

By agreeing to the Parent Code of Conduct, you are agreeing to participate your time and energy to make this a great summer for all swimmers.

The Eichler Swim Team Committee reserves the right to dismiss families and swimmers if obligations to the team are not met.

Eichler Swim Team Code of Conduct and Policies

The Eichler Swim Team promotes respect, good sportsmanship, and responsibility to team members, coaches, the Club, and opponents from other Clubs.  The team relies heavily on the good citizenship of its member families to support these qualities and to render participation on the team a fun, safe, and rewarding experience for all members.

The team’s Swim Committee is most concerned about the safety of our swimmers as it's foremost priority. The Eichler Club and Swim Team Committee jointly believe that it is a privilege to be on the Swim Team and, if necessary, will not hesitate to revoke this privilege from any team member whose behavior puts their or any other member's safety at risk.  The same applies to any behavior that is deemed to be disruptive to the performance and/or spirit of the team as a whole by the team’s coaching staff.  

Specifically, physically fighting with any other user of the Club and/or disregard of Club rules and regulations are grounds for suspension and/or expulsion from the team.  The Swim Team Committee will make every reasonable effort to ensure that any  actions taken are administered fairly to all parties involved.  The Swim Team Committee will have final authority over any actions taken to preserve the safety and good member experience by all Eichler members.  

Note that swimmers eight years old and younger will only be allowed to swim at practice when accompanied by a parent or guardian who remains at the pool the duration of the practice.

To acknowledge my agreement and support of the above policies, we, the swim team members and their parent/guardian listed below, hereby give our consent to this policy and agree to abide by any disciplinary measures taken by the Swim Team Committee.
