Hornet's Nest League Statement of Purpose
It is the vision of the Hornets Nest Swim League to promote a "less competitive" swim league in which children may compete, learn, and improve without pressure or controversy.
It is the League's intent to provide an atmosphere which will enhance the enjoyment of athletic competition,where it's understood that children compete for enjoyment and self-improvement.
That compassionately encourages each child to swim to the best of his or her ability.
Which gets back to basics by creating a fun program and positive childhood memories.
The Hornets Nest League has a team limit of 100 swimmers at any meet.
We expect people to miss meets. (the expectation is around 20 per meet)
If this happens the swimmers who registered after the 100 get to swim, If it doesn’t then they can’t swim in that meet.
Regular season, I don’t expect anyone to miss any meets they want to swim in.
League meet, I don’t know how many will not want to swim. I know some people will be on spring break and out of town, But I don’t know how many.
Practices are fine in regards to numbers and a few more swimmers would not be a problem as long as the above is clearly understood.
WE ALWAYS NEED OLDER SWIMMERS!!!!

"Swimming--its lonely, the swimmers mightiest challenge is to tune out. It's the only sport where you can never know how well your doing until it's to late to do anything about it. There is no sound of footsteps or trash talking or heavy breathing in the next lane, it's just the muffled roar from fans who may be cheering for the winners or screaming for the losers. There is no other reality but the water---and any distraction from this dream like state---the recollection of an earlier conversation, the vision of a girl--can ruin a race. The mind can wander very easily. That's the difference between giving 98% and giving 100%, or the difference between a world record and last place." Elisabeth Bradner 06'
meets are on Saturday afternoons and they last around 2 hours
We are a "less" Competetive League, But we Swim Hard! And always work toward our personal bests!
