Local sports roundup – September 20


Seymour Swimming sign-ups

Seymour Swimming will be having sign-ups on September 23-26 at the Seymour High School pool from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. each day. The $210 fee is due at the time of signing up and covers the winter season and USA swimming membership fee.

A copy of the swimmer’s birth certificate, to verify age, is also required. Swimmers will also need to bring a swimsuit and towel for ability testing. 

If you’re not able to start swimming on sign-up day, Seymour Swimming states they are flexible with a start date. 

There are three ability levels: minnows, dolphins and sharks.

Minnows is the beginning level and where most will start. They are taught the correct freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly techniques. 

Questions and concerns can be directed to Seymour Swimming head coach Dave Boggs at 812-528-2413.
