Practice

Practices start Tuesday, May 30. Swimmers are expected to attend practice. The more your swimmer practices, the better your swimmer will get! Practices are in the mornings on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday at 8-9:30 am for 11 and older and at 9:30-10:30 am for 10 and under. We will also have an optional FUN swim (games and diving board time) on Friday at 9-10 am with treats afterwards.

Meets

Our meets are on weekday evenings. Away meets are typically held in outdoor pools. Warm ups will normally start 1 hour prior to meet start for home meets and 30 minutes prior to meet start for away meets. Your swimmer must participate in a minimum of three meets to be eligible for Championships. The Champs meet will be held at Denison University in Granville. Swimmers 11 and Older will swim on the first day of the meet and Swimmers 10 and Under will swim on day two. More information about the meet, including meet start and warm ups times will be announced later.

Costs

Registration – MRC member rates are $100 for the first swimmer in your family, $90 for the second, $80 for the third and $25 for each additional swimmer. Non-MRC member rates are $150 for the first swimmer in your family, $100 for the second, $90 for the third and $25 for each additional swimmer.

Time – All meets are run by parent volunteers. Each family is expected to sign up for 4 jobs during the season. Depending on the number of registrants, we may need to ask for more volunteers. We appreciate your additional assistance in any way that you can help.

Optional costs

Team Suit – Team suits are not required, but we recommend them as they are very durable suits which can be used for both practice and meets. If you choose not to purchase a team suit, please wear any black or blue competition style suit for practice and meets. Team suit prices are listed above.

Team Cap – Caps are not required, but we recommend that all swimmers wear a cap for practice and meets, especially those swimmers with long hair. MAKO team caps are available for sale at the MRC front desk for $10.

Team Shirt – Team shirts are not required, but encouraged! Show your MAKO Spirit! You can order your shirt(s) when you register for the team. Price: $9-13

Concession Buyout – All families are required to either sign up to bring a food item to each home meet or choose to “buyout” with a $40 payment. These dollars allow our concession volunteers to purchase items to sell at the concession stand.
