Swimming requirement

In order to be able to be a member of the Colby Sailfish a swimmer should have Swim Kids Five or the equivalent and must be able to swim one length of the pool unassisted.

Swim Meets

Colby Sailfish swimmers must participate in two (2) swim meets (not including time trials) in order to be able to swim with the team the following year.

Meet warm-up times set by the hosting team are to be strictly adhered to by all team members. If a swimmer misses warm up, they can be prevented from swimming for that meet.

Team members should check with the coaches prior to leaving a meet. Should it become necessary for a swimmer to leave a meet early, his/her coach must be notified.

Team members and parents are expected to display respect and good sportmanship toward coaches, officials, teammates and fellow competitors.

Group Placement

Placement of swimmers in the gold, silver or bronze swimming groups is at the discretion of the head coach with input from the assistant coach(s).


Choice of events that each swimmer will swim at provincials is at the discretion of the head coach with input from the assistant coach(s) and the swimmer.
