Failure to communicate any absence or to be found disrespectful in any capacity will jeopardize your opportunity to letter.
To Letter in CHS Swimming and Diving two components must be met:
1. An Athlete must meet these requirements-
Attendance – Athletes are expected to be at practice, this does not apply to club swimmers and divers. Excessive absences will not be tolerated. Athletes must attend all Meets assigned. Conflicts in Attendance – i.e., medical/dentist appointment, illness, religious, club sport, prescheduled activity, or other commitment as verified, will not jeopardize your Lettering opportunity provided that ample communication is made in advance.
Participation – Athletes are expected to put forth their best effort at practices, during training, and in all events. Horseplay will not be tolerated at practices or Meets.
Behavior– Athletes are expected to be respectful at all times towards Teammates, Competitors, Coaches, Referees, Officials, Aquatic Center Staff, and Spectators. Additionally, swimmers and divers are expected to uphold Cobb County, GHSA, and NFHS athletic standards.
2. An Athlete must meet one of these qualifications-
Qualify to compete in the Cobb County Championships in an Individual event by achieving the time standard required, in a GHSA approved race. Only the lead-off legs on the 200 and 400 Free Relays may also qualify if the time standard is met. Divers must achieve 120 points in an 11 Dive format to be eligible.
