Marlins Swim and Dive Team

Welcome to the 2017 Madeira Marlins swim and dive season! We are excited that you are interested in having your child participate on our team this year. There are some key dates below for your information. In particular, on Sat. May 20th, we will have registration at MSTC from 10:00-12:00. Swimville swimwear will be there from 10:00-12:00. This is a good time to buy the new team suit or any necessary supplies your swimmer/diver may need (such as goggles or Sammy towel). We are using a new swimsuit this year, however, if you have last year’s team suit please feel free to use it.  Our new suit design will not longer change every two years. It will remain the same suit for years to come. We ask that a parent from each family volunteer to work at least 3 meets (See the handbook for complete information).

For NEW SWIMMERS ONLY AND MINI MARLINS FROM LAST YEAR WHO WOULD LIKE TO JOIN THE TEAM, we will have a try-out on Sat. May 20th. Come anytime between 10:00-12:00. Try-outs are done for safety reasons. To become a team member, all new swimmers must demonstrate at the try-out that they are able to do the freestyle for one length of the pool and backstroke for one length of the pool without stopping (Mini Marlins must only swim freestyle), touching the bottom of pool, and/or holding onto lane line. This is done for new Madeira Marlin swimmers and Mini Marlins only. If your child has been a swimmer with the Marlins during previous years, it is not required unless they are a former Mini Marlin trying to join the main team.

The cost for swimmers OR divers who are 12 years old or under is $75 per child and to do BOTH, it is $80 per child; 13-14 year olds are $40 to swim OR dive and $45 to do BOTH; and 15 year olds and up are FREE (must fill out registration form). All MSTC membership fees must be paid PRIOR to swim/dive team registration. Swim and dive registration will be paperless this year.  All registration MUST be completed on our team website PRIOR to the first day of practice in order for your child to participate.

Below you will find a list of important dates for the 2017 Swim and Dive season.
