Swim Tryouts
(For questions please contact Darcey Diaz (Swim Booster President)  at: darceydiaz@yahoo.com)
Items to note for water polo players interested in swim tryout:
  1. Tryout is same day as boys' awards banquet (12/3) but we will be done in time.
  2. Water Polo Athletes need to resubmit additional copies of paperwork and fill out 8to18 for swim (water polo paperwork and 8to18 does not carry over to swim, they need to do it all over again).
Dear Swim & Dive Team and Prospective Swimmers
 
I hope you are all settling back into your school routine and enjoying being back on campus.  Although we are a Spring sport, it is time to start thinking about swim tryouts already! We have our 2021-2022 season tryouts scheduled for Friday December 3rd 2021, 3:30pm – 5:30pm. We will most likely split the tryout swimmers into two groups to avoid crowding and you will be advised nearer the time which group you will be in. 
 
Swim & Dive is a cut sport, and we will have a Varsity squad (boys varsity and girls varsity), a JV squad (boys JV and girls JV) and an Alt squad for swimmers who are not guaranteed to swim at competition but will train as part of the team. All swimmers must try out to be considered for a roster spot.  If you swam with us last year, thank you and welcome back, but you still need to try out. Previous year’s roster placement does not guarantee the same placement in the coming year, rosters are drawn up based purely on times of those who try out.
 
In order to try out, you must complete the following:
 
1.     Register on: https://www.teamunify.com/team/reczzmchss/page/home and click on the button marked ‘Registration’. This is for new swimmers only. Previous swimmers on the team can bypass this step as you already have an account with us. Registration will close at the end of the day on Saturday November 20th.  When registering, please note the following important points:
 
·      If you have a Team Unify account already for a different sport or team (club swimming, water polo, etc), you still need to create a new Mira Costa account and you should use the SAME password that you have for your other Team Unify account(s).  
·      Make sure you include a cell phone number and carrier (where it says SMS) – this is important so we can send texts to relay urgent last minute changes to training schedules, etc.
·      Parents: please make your Team Unify account in your swimmer’s name, not yours. It gets really difficult to track down which account relates to which swimmer when different last names are involved.
 
2.     Complete the 8to18 registration for athletes (current fall sport athletes need to add SWIM to their 8to 18: https://miracosta.8to18.com/accounts/login. This must be completed by Friday November 19th.
 
3.     Once you receive an email back from us stating that your registration is approved, or if you are a returning swimmer, you need to log into your account, scroll down the home page and click on the link for ‘2022 MCHS Swim Team Tryouts’. Click ‘Attend/Decline’ and select ‘yes’ from the dropdown menu.  All swimmers at tryouts must swim the 100 yard freestyle as well as 100 yard stroke of your choice. Select the 100 free and the stroke of your choice from the available events and add your best times for both your 100 free and your stroke choice if you know them in the notes box at the top. This will aid us greatly in seeding tryouts. Save your changes before exiting. 
 
4.     You need to submit a PAPER copy of your completed physical form, signed by a doctor, as well as your emergency card to the front office. There is a table set up just inside the doors to the left. Physicals are valid for one yearfrom the date of the exam and must last for the whole season, so they cannot expire prior to June 2022. All paperwork is due before the Thanksgiving break, by Friday November 19thNO EXCEPTIONS! The Athletic Department needs time to get everyone processed.
 
Swimmers who have not completed the above steps will not be able to try out! The earlier you get this process completed, the better, so there is time to address any issues. Please get started now! The biggest delay is caused by obtaining a physical.  We are working on getting more free physicals, but if you can get into your primary care physician in the meantime, please go ahead and do that and don’t leave it until the last minute. Swimmers with no physical on file are not eligible to participate. The above deadlines are firm: if all of the steps are not completed, there will be no tryout and no spot on the team! We do not have the ability to add late entries to tryouts.
 
A message from Coach Halushka:
Please consider the following before you try out: 
  1. This is a team sport and a class on your transcript. A commitment is required.
  2. This is a cut sport.  
  3. You will receive a letter grade on your transcript based on attendance and participation.
  4. You must attend the swim meets and meet the weekly practice minutes / class requirements (the “class” starts in January and goes until the end of the 2nd semester).
  5. Coach can drop you down a team level, lower class grade and potentially drop team member from team/class if they do not attend the meets and practices.
Be prepared to make a substantial commitment to the program if you are to make the team.
 
If you have any registration questions, please contact our Booster VP, Darcey Diaz at: darceydiaz@yahoo.com and she will assist you.
 
Please also follow us on Instagram at: miracostaswimdive to stay in touch!
 
Thank you so much, good luck to everyone and we will see you on deck!

Team Dinners 
Original Info and Link:

Every year our water polo families host our teams at the beach, in a park, in their homes, at a restaurant, etc for Team Dinners. Great time for the players to bond. Please sign up to host a dinner. You will be providing food for players and coaches. Most of the time the boys eat quickly and run home to do homework, so it is not an all-night affair. The dinners are immediately following the Costa practices, so 4:45pm for Varsity/JVT and 6:15pm for JV and 7:30 pm for F/S. Any questions, call Lee Tunila at 310-614-0396.
