2024 SWIM & DIVE INTEREST FORM
Q: When does Swim & Dive Season Start?

 

Swim and Dive for both girls' and boys' are considered spring sports. Regular season begins February 9, 2024, and pre-season dates will be announced shortly.  Two team tryouts are held in November. Decisions, registration, and schedules will be posted prior to winter break. Pre-season and Saturday practices begin in January for the swim team and the dive program will resume at the start of the regular season unless noted otherwise. To be eligible to practice and compete, the online athletic clearance process must be completed and approved by Troy’s Athletic Department prior to tryouts. Students must be in good academic standing with a minimum 2.5 GPA or higher to practice and / or compete throughout the season.

Q: What fees are involved for the Swim & Dive program?

 

Troy Aquatics Booster Association is a non-profit organization responsible for funding the Water Polo teams, and Swim & Dive programs at Troy High School. Upon team acceptance to the Swim and Dive team, a financial contribution is due at the time of regular season Registration. This tax-deductible donation can be paid via PayPal. 100% of your generous contribution goes directly to the Swim & Dive Team.

This amount covers per athlete:

 

 

Troy Aquatics Booster Association is a qualified 501(c) 3 entity EIN 30-0281785 ID # 27-2411704 and 100% of each registration contribution collected go directly to the swim & dive program at Troy High School. Board meetings are held once a month and are open to parents and students interested in attending. 

 

 

Q: My child played on the Water Polo team. Is it necessary for them to re-register again with Troy Aquatics and provide a contribution if they join the swim or dive team?

 

Yes, a new registration is required for each season throughout the year. Each team under the Troy Aquatics umbrella is separately budgeted according to the actual cost for that season. Your contribution to the Swim & Dive  team during the registration period is allotted for your athlete and the specific team in which your athlete is registering. Troy Aquatics is a non-profit organization, and each year, the requested contribution is carefully determined by actual costs and voted on by the board members.  It is important to note, the Swim and Dive programs are not funded by Troy High School or the FJUHSD. Troy High School’s Swim and Dive teams are funded and made possible due to the donations collected during the program’s registration period. Without your generous contributions, these teams would not exist.

Q: How much experience is required to join the team?

 

Every athlete (including returning  team members) must try out and qualify to earn a spot on Troy High School’s swim and dive teams. Previous participation does not guarantee you a spot on your current level (i.e. Varsity, JV, or Frosh | Soph.) Tryouts allow our coaching staff to properly assess skill sets and determine what level is best for the team.  Team members must be water safe and able to meet team standards outlined in team expectations set by the coaching staff.  Swim & Dive members are required to attend full practices for the entire duration during the swim and dive season. While it is not mandatory, it is strongly encouraged for all returning swim and dive team members and prospects to attend summer camp, Saturday practices, and winter pre-season training when offered. All athletes will need to attend tryouts regardless of experience. The swim team does conduct cuts and will announce the season roster prior to winter break. The dive team is an interest based program which will begin in early February.

Q: Does the swim team train all year or just during swim season?

 

Regular Season practice begins Monday, February 12, 2024. Practices are held six (6) days/week, 2-hours each day with 3K-7K days. Saturday practices begin in January (5K-10K days) leading to the season open, and Summer Camp is held during July which swimmers will participate in dryland training followed by either aerobic, endurance, strength, or speed training.   Dive practice will commence during Regular Session starting February. 

 

Swim team practices are not scheduled on Staff Development Days and over Thanksgiving, Winter, or Spring breaks unless noted otherwise. Dive practice during these dates varies and attendance is optional when classes at Troy are not in session.

 

Q: Does the swim team focus on strength and conditioning training?

 

Coach Driessen has expressed interest in establishing strength and conditioning dryland  sessions for the 2024 spring season.  Her goal is to improve overall performance. Information will be made available via email and online once plans are finalized.

 

 

Q: Can athletes continue to train with a club team during spring swim season?

 

Team members are highly encouraged to train with a club team during non-season months.  Upon the approval of team coaches, athletes may train with their club during the Regular Season as well.  This arrangement must be discussed with the coaching staff for approval.

 

 

Q: What are the uniform requirements?

 

Each team athlete is required to represent Troy in the regulation Speedo uniform at all swim & dive meets scheduled for the 2024 season. Our Speedo competition suits, briefs, and jammers should be solid black, with the Troy Warrior logo imprinted on the lower right hip section of the suit or on the backside. Technical suits are also an acceptable option and can be purchased here: Troy Warrior Swim & Dive Team Store.

 

 

Q: Can additional suits, gear, and merchandise be purchased?

 

Yes, in addition to the team uniform supplied by Troy Aquatics, additional swimsuits and team merchandise can be purchased online at the Team Store. Team gear found on our online store is encouraged, but not mandatory.

 

Q: Is it required for parents to Volunteer if their student is part of the team?

 

Yes. It is required that each family volunteer at least two (2) two-hour shift during home meets or sign-up to bring a food donation for the snack bar. Parents are also required to attend a mandatory team meeting which will be held at the discretion of the Boosters and Coaching Staff during the Registration Period.

 

We are always looking for parents and family members with photography and videography skills to capture our athletes during meets. If this is of interest, please email troyswimdive@gmail.com to let us know!

Q: What can I expect at Summer Swim Camp?

 

Coach Driessen holds a two-week intensive training session during the summer season. All returning and prospective swim team members are highly encouraged to enroll. Each day, swimmers can expect to spend an hour dry land training to improve overall performance, followed by either aerobic, endurance, strength, or speed training. The last day of the session will be an Intrasquad meet that participants can use as their tryout times. All athletes are required to try out each year to earn a spot.

 

Swimmers should bring: SPF, running / workout shoes and athletic wear for dryland training, goggles, cap, swimsuit, towel, fins*, and snorkel. Athletes may need to purchase fins & snorkel to be used throughout the training session and swim season. All other equipment (kick boards, paddles, buoys, and other dryland supplies) are provided. Fins, snorkel, and other swim gear can be conveniently purchased through Troy High School Swim & Dive Online Team Store. Registration is open to students enrolled at Troy High School and rising freshman registered for fall classes.

 

Athlete Clearance must be received and approved by the Troy Athletic Department before July 10, 2023. Students can visit Pacific Urgent Care in Fullerton to complete their athletic physical. The cost is $45.
