Who Can Join the Marlins
The swim and dive teams are open to children of Mantua club members and rental members.
The Mantua Marlins Swim Team is comprised of the regular “big” team and the Mini-Marlins. To be on the “big” Swim Team, a child must be able to swim a full length of the pool (25 meters) without fins and without stopping. The Minis are NO YOUNGER than 5 and no older than 7 years of age and must be comfortable entering and moving unassisted through deep water. Any child 7 and under who needs assistance from the lane line to complete a pool length may be asked to swim in the Mini Marlins program. All interested children are encouraged to come and be evaluated.
Please remember that swim team is NOT swim lessons! Please feel free to discuss your child’s skill level with the Team Rep and coaches if you have any questions.
A commitment from each family to volunteer during the season is essential to make things run smoothly for the team. All skills and positive personalities are welcome! A family must volunteer at least 10 hours to assist the swim team.
Swim meets require a large volunteer staff of over 40 people to time, officiate, and score. We need you! Meet officials receive free certification training at NVSL Officials Clinics held each year. Please consider attending if you’re interested in any official duties (see Swim Team Volunteer Job Descriptions and the 2019 NVSL Officials Clinic Schedule for additional information).
Volunteers are also needed to help set up the pool for all home meets (Saturday A Meets–generally after 8 pm; Monday B Meets–arrive at the pool by 4 pm), run the snack bar during the meet, and tear down immediately after the meet to get the pool ready for members. There are other non-meet opportunities to help the team–serving Monday morning breakfasts, assisting with team spirit and group activities. The Team Reps can always use some extra help, too!
Communicating with parents and team members is done primarily through email and the website. Always check your email and/or follow-up with the coaches and Team Reps when in doubt. Earned ribbons and additional communication will also be placed in your family’s folder, which will be available on the pool deck during practice.
