Does my child have to be able to swim the full length of the pool?
TSC is not swim lessons. Your child should be able to swim the length of the pool unassisted. We do have the first days of practice as a time for you and your child to determine if swimming is for them.
How often do I have to volunteer?
Each family is required to volunteer at 3 meets and 1 family member helps at the car wash. If your child is selected to swim at Meet of Champs or the All Star Meet, volunteering is mandatory for your child to participate. Volunteer commitments are per family.
What if I don't want to volunteer?
While we would prefer that you volunteer, we understand that there are situations when volunteering cannot be completed. If you do not wish to volunteer, please notify a board member and we will draft your $150 volunteer deposit and you will not be asked to volunteer at any of the regular season meets. This does not pertain to the championship meets.
What is your registration cost?
The first swimmer in a family will cost $125. Each subsequent swimmer in one family will be $100.
What is your registration cost for age 15-18 swimmers?
We charge $45 for swimmers aged 15-18.
How long are practices?
Practice will be 30 minutes per day for 6 and Under and Level II 8 and Under swimmers. For older swimmers, they will practice approximately 45 min - 1 hour per day.
Do I have to stay during practice?
Swimmers in our 7-8 and 6 & Under Age Groups must have a parent/guardian at the pool at all times. The parent/guardian must be in the building.
What is Tiger's policy on bringing a service animal to practice or meets?
TIGER follows the ADA guidelines: ADA frequently asked questions
In situations where it is not obvious that the dog is a service animal, staff may ask only two specific questions: (1) is the dog a service animal required because of a disability? and (2) what work or task has the dog been trained to perform? Staff are not allowed to request any documentation for the dog, require that the dog demonstrate its task, or inquire about the nature of the person's disability.
If a service animal is out of control and the handler does not take effective action to control it, staff may request that the animal be removed from the premises.
Am I allowed to bring my service animal while it is in training?
No. Under the ADA, the dog must already be trained before it can be taken into public. However, some State or local laws cover animals that are still in training places.
