Parents and Swimmers,
WELCOME!  I am excited to start off the season and I am looking forward to a great year.  This is a brief introduction to the season.  There are two links below.  One is the schedule as of now but please note this may change and a lot of times are still TBD, but I wanted to get this out to you now for your planning purposes.
1. All paper work MUST be turned in on Thursday, November 5th at 2:30pm in the LHS Athletic Office.
We have gone to an online paper work system. Here is the link:
The only paper work that you physically need to turn in is your physical (all 6 pages) and your pay to play fee of $105.  These two items are what are to be handed into the athletic office on Thursday, 11/5 at 2:30pm, everything else can be done online. If you do not have your paper work turned in by this day you will not be able to participate in try-outs.
2. Try-Outs
Try-outs will be held on Tuesday, 11/10 and Thursday, 11/12 at Blue Ash YMCA from 5-6:15am.   If you want to be considered for the team, you must come to practice on these days. However, if you are a club swimmer I must have your times by Tuesday, 11/10. You will not need to come to practice as long as I have your times.
3. Suit Fitting
We will have suit fitting on Friday, 11/13.  More information to come.
4. Parent Meeting
There will be a parent meeting on Wednesday, 11/18 at 6pm.  Please plan on attending.  Follow the link below to view the handout.
5. Meet the Team Night
Meet the Team Night is also on Wednesday, 11/18 at 7pm.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Again, I look forward to a great season.

 Parents and Athletes:

 Below is information which will help you with the start of the season. Please read ALL the way through:
1.  The October and November schedules are on this site under Practice Calendars.  Please note in November I am trying to add a few Saturdays at Sycamore HS.  IF this happens I will send out a NEW November schedule.
2.  I am still working on the meet and practice schedule for December, January and February.  Once this is set I will send it out.
3.  All paper work is due on Monday, October 28th at 2:30 p.m.  You will go to the athletic office and see Mrs. Brulport to turn in everything.
Athletes or Parents follow the steps below to find all required documents:
click on schools
click on Loveland High School
click on Athletics
scroll down to Resources
click on Athlete Pre-participation papers
**without ALL paper work and/or fees you will NOT be able to participate.  Please have EVERYTHING ready to hand in on OCTOBER 28th AT 2:30pm.**
5. Mandatory practice starts on November 7th.  The first practice will be at Blue Ash YMCA.  All swimmers must ride bus from LHS.  Bus leaves at 4:30 a.m.
6.  Depending on the number of athletes who come out for the team I may have to have try outs.  This information will be discussed at the parent meeting.  I will know the exact number of student-athletes wanting to participate AFTER all paper work has been turned in on October 28th.  IF we do have cuts your fees will be returned to you.  I had about 70 kids come to the opening swimming/diving meeting, this is great, however, it is too many to have when I only have 3 days a week to practice and a 6 lane pool.  It comes down to safety.
7.  Diving Coach –  We are finalizing our decision now.  Once this is finalized I will send out the diving coaches information.
If you have ANY questions please email me.
I look forward to a great season.
