    First Day of Practice:  Monday, August 26th.  Once school is in session, swimmers will be bussed each night from West to East for practice, but there will not be a bus back to West after practice.  Please pick up your daughters at East by 4:45 each night.

    Coach   We are currently hiring for this position.

    Sports Physical:  swimmers need to have a sports physical on file in Mr. Antony’s office.  Sports physicals are valid for three years. You need to have a sports physical on file in order to register.  You can send sports physicals to Middle School West with attention to Ryan Antony.

    Registration:  Registration is now open!  You may register online through parents’ School View account, clicking on fee pay, and then activities. You will need to fill out the eligibility form online and electronically sign it (parent and athlete need to sign).  You will then be asked to pay the $150 activity fee. If your family is on the reduced or free lunch plan, your fee is lower. The system should tell you how much you have to pay according to your lunch account. If you think there is an error with the fee, please contact Ryan Antony at 763-497-4524 ext. 94124.  Make sure your daughter has a valid physical on file with the activities office or the system will not allow you to register.

    Behavior – as an athlete for Middle School West, our athletes are ambassadors of our school.  As an ambassador of our school, we expect our athletes’ behavior to be exceptional. We want our athletes to be positive role models for others to see and follow.  

    Important Policies to remember:  

     

    • Students need to be passing all of their classes to be on the swim and dive team.  Mr. Antony will check to see if swimmers are passing all of their classes at mid-tri.
    • Students need to be in class five full periods of the day in order to practice or swim in a meet that night.  Students with a doctor’s appointment may be excused from this requirement if they have documentation from the doctor referencing the appointment.  Make sure to bring this note, from the doctor to Mrs. Dodge, our attendance person.
    • Your coaches will expect the players to be at practice every day.  Missed practices may result in reduced meet time.

     

    We will bus you to all road meets and back to East.  You may ride home with your parents after road meets rather than the bus if you wish.  You need to have your parent sign out with your coach if you ride home with a parent. If you are planning to ride home with someone else’s parents, your parents need to notify Mr. Antony of this one day in advance.
