Here are some of the most frequent questions about the Steinbach Skimmers.  If you question is not answered below, please feel free to contact us at steinbachskimmers@gmail.com.

Because not all swimmers compete in all swim meets, we don’t include these costs as part of the registration fees.  Meet registration fees are set by the host club and outlined in the meet package.  Our club also charges a $10/swimmer meet fee to cover coaching.  Once the meet registration is submitted to the host club, a swimmer can cancel their participation, but no refunds are available.

DQs in swimming are the same as penalties in hockey – part of the game. There are many technical nuances of starts, turns and strokes that if not done right can result in a DQ.  Even the most experienced swimmers get DQ’d from time to time.  The important thing is that our coaching staff will review and explain the DQ with swimmers so they can learn from it.

Skimmers is a competitive swim club and the coaching and practicing is to prepare swimmers for competition.  We understand that not all swimmers will be able to attend all meets throughout the season but we strongly encourage families to add the schedule of meets to their calendars so they are prepared.

New swimmers need to have the base fundamentals and skills prior to competition.  When swimmers are ready, the coaching team will let them know and work with them on event selection.
