2020-2021 Collierville Middle School
Swim Team
Welcome to 2020 – 2021 Collierville Middle School Swim Team. The Collierville Middle School Swim Team is a developmental program for the Collierville High School Swim Team and is comprised of swimmers from both Collierville Middle and West Collierville Middle schools. While we are still dealing with the COVID pandemic, this swim season will be different then in years past. The team has enacted an athlete/coach monitoring program (many club swimmers are already up to date on most of these changes), have limited meets, and we’ve tried to keep costs to a minimum.

Coaching, Sponsors, Practice, and Meet Schedule
Our swim coach for the 2020-2021 season will be Ms. Isabel Hoppal. Isabel was a Memphis Thunder swimmer and has coached summer league. We are excited to have her coach the team.

Our school sponsors are Karissa Steward (CMS) and David Culbertson (WCMS)

Practices will be held at St. Georges High School –
• Monday thru Thurs (7:30 – 8:30 PM) - FIRST PRACTICE IS WED, MARCH 24TH Swim Meet - Saturday, April 17
Shelby County Swim League has indicated the following:
• St. George's is their first-choice location, Tunica is the backup plan. Will confirm location ASAP.
• Will likely have multiple meet sessions over the course of the day to keep numbers in the facility down.
• Is hoping to allow #1 spectator per swimmer (at a minimum we will have a chaperone system).

Suit, Cap, Shirt, Etc.

While Collierville Middle School Swim Team encourages all swimmers wear a racing suit, we have decided not to require swimmers purchase a team suit. However, at a minimum, all swimmers will be required to wear a team swim cap at swim meets. Collierville Middle School Swim Team has pre-selected apparel through Swim&Tri – please order your swim caps directly from the website (see link below). Again, the site has other swim team apparel, however, we are not requiring swimmers purchase them this swim year. Please place your swim cap order as soon as possible. No other swim gear will be needed – the pool has kickboards, pull buoys, etc. for daily use (club swimmers may elect to bring their own gear if desired).
