Welcome Legacy Park Sharks!
Welcome Legacy Park swimmers and families! The weather is getting warmer and swim team season is just around the corner. We are excited to see the sharks in the water! Please review the following information for important updates on the Legacy Park Sharks.
Coaches: Kelly Riedesel is returning as head coach this year. Kelly has been a shark swimmer for many seasons and has previously served as Junior Coach and Head Coach for the Legacy Park Sharks. We are excited to have Tucker Hall and Rylan Kelly return for another season as Junior Coaches for our team. It’s going to be a great season!
Practice schedule: After registration has ended, the coaches will review the number of swimmers in each age group and finalize the practice schedule.
We ANTICIPATE the practice schedule to be the same as last year.

Ages 11 & up:6:15-7:00
Beginning Thursday, May 25, practices will be held every morning M-F.
Ages 9/10: 9:15-10:00
Ages 11 & up:10:00-11:00
**All practices and home meets will be held at the Legacy Park main pool.
Meet Volunteer Requirements: In order for the meets to run smoothly and be adequately staffed, each family is asked to work 3 meet halves this year. Please note this is per family and not per swimmer. Please sign-up to volunteer on our website www.legacyparksharks.swimtopia.com
Non-Meet Volunteer Requirements: The swim team has several opportunities to earn money for our team during the swim season and we need your help. We ask each family to volunteer for 2 “non-meet” events. Non-meet events include newsletter stuffing and delivery, Memorial Day concessions and pool parties. If you have not completed this requirement by the end of the swim season, $100 will be charged to your account.
Parent Orientation: A parent informational session will be held on Thursday, May 4 at 6:00 p.m. at the Legacy Park Clubhouse. Please join us to learn more about swim practice, training equipment, volunteer job descriptions, what to expect at a swim meet and more. This is a great meeting for parents new to the swim team.
Meet Schedule: Our meets will be held on Wednesday this year. There are 4 “official” swim meets. All meets will begin promptly at 6 p.m., but swimmers are asked to arrive early to check-in with the coaches and warm up. Warm-up times are generally 5:00 for home meets and 5:30 for away meets. Our meet schedule is as follows:
