Welcome to the 2018-2019 Swim Season!
While our season will be dedicated to Coach Vince, we are excited to have Jared Price as our head coach.
1/16/2019 - Metro Info
BOYS: The boys' team has their sleepover Friday night at the Hoagland house. That address is 11808 Zinfandel Ln NE, 87122. ALL permission slips and $20 are due Friday, and should be given to Mrs. Hoagland when they arrive at the house after practice. The permission slip can be found here.
GIRLS: The girls' team dinner will occur after practice on Friday as well, at the Fellows house. That address is 8605 Pristine DR NE, 87122.
The Meet: We'll be swimming at West Mesa. Warm-up will be at 9:30 AM. That means I need everyone at the pool no later than 9 AM. This meet is unique for a few reasons: first, there will be 16 teams there. It may seem like it's a long meet, but it's technically only half of a full meet since only the girls are swimming. Next, we have an obnoxious 45-minute intermission between the time that warm-up ends and the meet begins. This means that you'll likely need to warm up again before your event, unless you're in the first few events. Finally, we'll have a few breaks within the meet; one 15 minute break after the 50 Free, and a 5 minute break after the Medley relay. This is to give the swimmers some rest between their events since there isn't a group of boys swimming in between each event.
One more thing: Each team needs to contribute one timer for the meet. I trust that we have a few experienced parents out there as we have a large team, so I'm not concerned about that bit.
Swim team pictures will take place on Tuesday, January 15 at Highland High School Pool before practice. Please wear your team shirt and arrive no later than 3:30p.
Dive team pictures will take place on Tuesday, January 15 at Sandia Pool before practice. Please wear your team shirt and arrive no later than 5pm.
Winter training will take place Monday-Friday from 9am-11am at Highland. It's a regular practice, so attendance is required unless you're traveling for the holidays. The only two days we won't be having practice are December 25th and January 1st. We are practicing with Albuquerque High School at that time, so Jimmy and I will alternate days of who is running each practice. This means that the teams will get to experience different workout and coaching styles as well as interact and socialize with another team. It's a lot of fun, and because practices are two hours, each practice provides a rigorous workout. Winter training is designed to get you in excellent shape for the second half of our season, where all of our large championship meets take place, so I hope you understand why each practice is as mandatory as always.

APS dive practice will also start on October 29th, 2018. The schedule will be:
All swimmers need to bring their blue slips and concussion management forms on their first day. DO NOT bring the physicals. Physicals must be turned into the trainer at LCHS who will give you the blue slip. Without the blue slip, you cannot tryout.
If you are in a fall sport, you may not tryout until the end of your fall sport. Please send an email to Lacuevaswimanddive@gmail.com and let me know about your special circumstance. If you turned in your blue slip to that fall sport, please let me know what sport so that I can look it up.
Thank you to all who attended the parent meeting on October 2. Handouts and forms from the meeting were:
All athletes must have a completed physical and form in order to tryout.
All athletes must have completed Life of an Athlete in order to tryout.
