Local sports briefs — Sept. 18


Swim sign ups in Seymour

Seymour Swimming is conducting sign-ups from 5 to 6 p.m Sept. 17-20 at the Seymour High School pool.

Seymour Swimming is a not-for-profit competitive swimming organization used as a beginning program for higher level groups, such as the middle school and high school teams. Since it is only partially funded by the Seymour Parks and Recreation Department, there is a fee structure based on the swimmer’s ability level. The fee for minnows, the beginning level, is $190 plus a USA Swimming membership fee of $20.

The $210 fee is due at the time of sign-ups. Swimmers need to bring a copy of their birth certificate to verify age, and it will not be returned. Swimmers also need to wear a swimsuit and bring a towel for ability level testing.

Seymour Swimming is divided into three ability levels — minnows, dolphins and sharks. Most swimmers start with minnows. To be in this group, you need to know the basics of freestyle and backstroke. Minnows will be taught the correct technique in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly.

Minnows practice from 5:45 p.m. to 6:30 Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The winter season ends the beginning of February.

If you can’t start immediately because of a conflict, starting dates can be worked out with the coaches, and you can sign up now and start later.

The head coach for Seymour Swimming is David Boggs, who has coached champions at the state and national levels and an Olympian. Robb Reynolds is the assistant coach for Seymour Swimming.
