High School Season Meetings and Team Sign-Up

Good evening everyone,

An interest meeting for high school swimming will be held this Thursday, Sep 27th right after school in A-Lecture. We will pass out the team information packet and schedule. For everyone that can attend, we will discuss the important items to complete before the season begins. If you are in a fall sport or activity, please try to stop by even if just to grab a copy of the team packet. If you cannot make it, I will have extras in F-105 before or after school starting Friday.

Our parent and athlete meeting will be held Wednesday, Oct 3rd at 6:30 pm in A-Lecture. All team items for the 2018-2019 season will be reviewed.

Our first official practice will be Fri Oct 26th and conclude with our championship meets in February.
The other item we encourage you to work on before the start of the season would be your FinalForms medical clearance. All Mentor student-athletes need to have a physical completed for the first day of practice.

Our team website can be reached at for additional information and updates.

Looking forward to a great season of Mentor swimming! Please let me know if you have any questions.
Thank you!

Swim Team Update Week of 4-30-18

Good morning everyone,

Few quick updates.  Parent night pictures came in for all winter sports teams.  Stop by F-103 before school or F-105 after school to receive yours.  A few people have asked for a copy of the awards night packet and I have linked the item here and also on the team website.

We have a swim team fundraiser carwash on June 2nd at Mentor Mitsubishi.  It will last from 11am-2pm.  This helps to pay for team t-shirts, bus snacks, team meals, parent/senior night, and awards night.  I will also be happy to sign volunteer hours towards graduation for anyone that attends.  Please click here to RSVP even if you can only attend a portion of the time

If anyone is interested is interested in offseason conditioning, please click here to complete the brief survey.  We are looking to offer a few options and possibly partner with some additional MHS teams for some special events.

If you are applying for National Honor Society, I would be happy to help you complete your recommendation form and evaluation.  Please drop off any forms in F-103 before school, F-105 after school, or the main office and they can place it in my mailbox.

When scheduling for next year, please be certain that you are scheduled for at least five credits.  Gym does not count towards your credits.  You must be passing five credits to be eligible.  Also please be aware that if you are scheduling Lakeland classes that they cannot conflict with your ability to be at one practice a day during the season.  If any questions please contact me.

Be active this summer.  Get outside and do something! :)  Here are the links to local swim teams if you are interested.

If you are looking for a summer job, the city rec department contacted me and said they were short on lifeguards.  It sounds like they were going to run a lifeguard certification class as soon as summer begins to certify and then hire new guards.  The flyer they sent is attached below and you can apply at Please contact the rec department with any questions.

Last item is a big favor from the parents.  With some seniors graduating we have a few booster positions opening that we would love to get some help with.  All the help we receive from parents is what makes this team great and leads to so much amazing support of our student-athletes.  This includes spiritwear, bus snacks, timers, parent night, senior night, photography, announcing, fundraising, all of these items and more that benefit every member of our team.  We are so appreciative of the help everyone gives and we could not do it without you.  If you have great ideas on what you would like to see or want to help us out, please please consider becoming involved with the booster group.  You can email me or for more info or to volunteer.

Hope everything is going well and work hard to finish out the school year on a strong note!
