Greetings Mohican Families,
We are looking forward to fun summer ahead! For those families new to Mohican, our Swim & Dive Team is a great way for kids ages 4-18 to make friends at the pool, have fun, and build swimming and diving skills. The summer season runs from the week before Memorial Day through the last week in July. Practices are held every afternoon until MCPS school ends, and then morning and afternoon practice sessions to accommodate those with busy summer schedules. Swim meets are held on Wednesday evenings (B Meets open to all), competitive rostered meets on Saturday mornings (A Meets), and our annual Mini Muffin meet on July 4 for all pre-team swimmers. Dive team holds separate practices and meets are typically held on Sunday afternoons. Our team calendar also features social events for all ages and the whole family — including Friday pep rallies and team dinners, team breakfasts, and age-specific group outings.
For more specific details about the team calendar, practice times, and meet schedules, please visit our website at https://mohican.swimtopia.

How do I register my 8U swimmer for an evaluation on May 18?
We want the swim team experience to be positive for our youngest kids at Mohican. To ensure this happens, our coaches hold pre-season evaluations for our youngest swimmers to assess safety in the water and proper placement prior to the start of team practices.
1.Coaches will evaluate ALL 8U swimmers on May 18 between 12-4pm. This process will enable coaches to properly place 8U swimmers on either the Mohican Pre Team or the competition team (A and B Meet swimmers). To read more about the Mohican Pre Team and evaluations, click https://mohican.
2.To register your swimmer(s) for a 20-minute slot, click the Volunteer Sign-up Tab, 8U Evaluations, Job Sign-up (you will need to put one parent name in the sign-up prompt). Sign-up for one slot per child.
3.Make up evaluations will be held the week of May 20. Please contact head coach, Kevin Wagman, to arrange a day and time.
