    All you need is a swimsuit, cap, and goggles (we recommend getting a block M cap from the M den). There are kick boards and pull buoys provided for us at the pool.
  • How often are swim meets?
    We have about three swim meets per semester as well as Nationals at the beginning of April. Excluding Nationals, the meets are one session on a Saturday. You can attend as many as you want, or none at all, it's completely up to you.
  • How far away are swim meets?
    Swim meets can be anywhere from 1-2 hours away (MSU or BGSU) to 4-5 hours away (Northwestern or Purdue). For the meets that are farther away we will stay overnight either the night before or the night after, depending on the timing of the meet.
  • Is there a meet fee?
    Yes; the fee for day meets is usually $10 and the fee for overnight meets is $20-$25. This covers the host team's entry fee, gas for drivers, rental cars if needed, and hotel rooms for overnight meets.
