Suits and team apparel:

We are changing things up just a bit this season... Due to the many teams with blue suits, the Hammerheads are going RED!  (our old suits have been discontinued so now is a good time to make the change).  Note: You do not have to change suits if last years suit still fits! 

Our Hood Hammerhead team suits are available to purchase from

Parents:

The Hammerhead Swim Team is run by many volunteers.  In order to make it a fun and successful season, we require that each family volunteer for at least three meets during the season.  Volunteer duties include, but are not limited to: Timing, Stroke & Turn judging, Clerk of course (getting kids to the seating area), concessions, ribbons and set up and tear down of tents and pool deck area.  There will be sign up sheets available at the pool during registration, at practices and meets.

 

Stroke and Turn Training:

If you are interested, and we really need your help, you can volunteer as a Stroke & Turn

official or starter. It is mandatory you attend one, two hour clinic to be able to officiate a meet (returning judges from the 2014 season must attend one of the sessions as well).

**We will announce the schedule as soon as its finalized**

 

In addition to these 6 training sessions above, there will be 2 refresher only training sessions offered. These are only for officials with 2+ years FSSL experience or year-round officials. They will be

 

Additional 1/2 hour mandatory Starter/Referee training following each session for those who may work in those capacities
