Hamlet Swim Team
Children of Hamlet Swim and Tennis Club members (18 & under) are eligible to participate. Swimmers must be able to comfortably swim one length of the pool (25 meters) and be able to handle a 45 minute practice session. Swimmers 7 years old and under with no prior experience on the Hamlet summer swim team must be evaluated prior to sign up. These evaluations will take place either the day of registration or the following week during practice. The swim evaluation will determine if swim team or the new "Little Green Feet" program is better suited for the young swimmer.
Our "Little Feet Program" is primarily aimed at children age 4-6 years old who are comfortable in the water but not able to handle a 45 minutes practice and/or not able to swim a length of the pool. The Little Green Feet practices will begin once morning practices begin on June 26th.
Swim Team registration and sign-ups will be on Saturday May 27th from 10am to 2pm in the upstairs room at the Hamlet Swim and Tennis Club. You can register online at our team site https://hamletgreenfeet.swimtopia.com/. Swimmers must be fully registered before they are allowed to practice with the team. Registration will not be considered complete until payment has been received with all forms. All registrations and fees are due no later than Tuesday May 3oth at 6pm. Registrations received after this deadline will be subject to a late fee per swimmer. No exceptions.
Many of our team members participate in year-round swim programs (e.g., Machine, York, Fish, Sea Devils). One program run by the Hamlet Swim Club, called "Winter Swim," meets one hour a week on Sunday evenings (Sept-May) at the Spring Hill Recreation Center.
Coach Meghan Overend
We are thrilled that Coach Meghan Overend is returning as our Hamlet Head Coach for Summer 2017. In 2014 and 2016, Coach Meghan led the Green Feet to Division II victories, as well as a three way tie in the 2014 Relay Carnival hosted by Hamlet. Meghan has completed her Masters in Elementary education at the University of Virginia, and just finished her first year of teaching at Churchill Elementary School. Meghan will be supported by Garrett Walsh as assistant coach. Garrett has coached (and swam!) for the Green Feet for many years. Garrett completed his sophomore year at the University of Louisville, where he is majoring in computer information systems.
We are also offering spirit wear for sale on a pre-order basis on our SwimTopia site. We will have sample sizes available at the team Open House registration and suit try-on. Spirit wear must be ordered before the end of May.
