  • Why are Parkway and Rockwood talking about having a combined swim club?

  • What are some potential benefits of having a combined swim club?

  • What is the timeline if the swim clubs were to combine?

  • UPDATE: Why haven’t the coaches been invited to any meetings at this point?

  • Will swim club families have an opportunity to provide input and feedback?

  • We love our swim club coaches. Would any coaches lose their jobs?

  • I’m concerned that group sizes could become too large and my child would no longer receive individual attention from their coach to help them improve their swimming skills. How would this be handled?

  • I’m concerned that practice locations and times could become less convenient. How would this be handled?

  • I’m concerned my child could get left behind in a combined larger club because coaches will only focus on the fastest swimmers.

  • I’m concerned that a combined club could create issues with attending swim meets as there would be too many swimmers from the combined club. How would this be handled?

  • The two clubs have different coaching styles. How would this work in a combined club?

  • The two clubs have different cultures. I’m concerned that with a larger club, we could lose the sense of community that we have now. How would this be handled?

  • Would this be a takeover, meaning one of the swim clubs would make all decisions on how a combined program would look?

  • I’ve heard that one of the swim clubs is struggling financially. Are the discussions regarding having a combined club happening because one of the clubs is experiencing financial challenges?

  • Would my swim club fees increase if the clubs are combined?
