  • When will my child have practice?
    Practice is Monday – Friday from 9:00am to 10:00am. Makeup practices are occasionally offered during the dinner break from 5:00pm to 6:00pm. If your child also swims club, their practice times are flexible. Please speak with the coach.
  • How old does my child have to be to join the swim team, and is there an upper age limit?
    It is recommended that a child be at least six years old and capable of swimming the length of the pool, which is 25 yards. The maximum age is 18-years-old. We suggest the younger swimmers come try a couple of practices to see what they think.
  • My family has a busy summer schedule, is it ok for my child to miss a swim meet?
    We understand there are a lot of activities going on in the summer, and it is totally ok for a swimmer to miss a swim meet. We ask that you notify a coach as far in advance as possible since it impacts each week’s meet entries. Swimmers must participate in two meets in order to qualify for Finals.
  • Does the team participate in any competitions?
    The Tiburon Sharks are members of the Greater Omaha Swim League which is about 20-25 pools throughout the metro area. The season is typically composed of 5-6 meets on Wednesday evenings with warmups around 5:00pm, and the meet starting at 6:00pm. Most meets are done within two hours. The season finishes with a prelims and finals meet.This is generally around mid-July. The meets are really fun and spirited!
  • Will my swimmer get to swim in Finals?
    Two preliminary meets are held the week of Finals. They are broken down by age groups (8&under, 9-10, 11-12, 13-14, 15+). Each swimmer may be entered in two individual events. Based on the swims at Prelims, the top six swimmers will get to swim in the Finals. Each pool also gets to enter one relay team of four swimmers for the medley relay and the freestyle relay. The relay entries will be based upon the combined four fastest times for that relay and won’t necessarily be the same four swimmers in each.
