Mount Rainier Girls Swim and Dive will begin practices on August 26th, the first eligible day per WIAA rules. Practices for Swim will be held at the Mount Rainier Pool to avoid cancellation from wildfires. We apologize to the girls for not having the normal first week outdoors!!!
While this is a "no-cut" sport, and we encourage participation from a wide range of students to have this experience in the water, there are minimum requirements that the student can complete two (2) lengths with a break in the middle (down and back, pausing to rest on the wall) and can tread water well enough for safety. In special circumstances we can accomodate students who do not meet these requirements, but a discussion will need to take place with the coaches and possibly the athletic director.
Students are required to obtain their own swim suits and goggles (for this season, a swim cap is HIGHLY encouraged). Kick boards and other gear for practices will be provided. Make sure to get cleared by the school in time for day 1!!!!
