So, you want to swim or dive at Zeeland High School?

Great!  Welcome!

Your coaches, Mike Torrey, Lisa Engers, Matt Inman and Dave Vruggink welcome you to Zeeland Swimming and Diving!  There is plenty of information about our programs available to you.  Your best resource is to bookmark our website:

Here you will find any and all information about all of the Zeeland Swimming programs.

 

Some important dates:

Sports Health Assessments:  Health Assessments are necessary to participate in any high school sport and once an athlete has one on file, it is good for that entire school year.  Athletes cannot even practice until this is on file with the school!  These assessments are offered both Wednesday, May 16th and Thursday, May 17th at Lakeshore Health Partners in Zeeland for only $15.  More information is available in the Athletic Office.  Please take care of this before the season begins!

Girls High School: Fall season begins on Monday, August 13th with practice at 8:00am.  Practices for the first week will run two hours from 8:00am to 10:00am.  All practices are mandatory!  There is more information along with our season calendar on the website listed above.

 

Summer Opportunities:

As summer approaches, it is important to consider participating in a summer swimming or diving program to prepare for our coming seasons.  There are plenty of options here in Zeeland:

Zeeland Age Group Swimming: known as ZAGS, is a once-a-day practice program Monday through Thursday that includes six summer competitions.  An informational meeting is scheduled for Thursday, May 24th at 7:30 pm at the Zeeland West Natatorium.  New swimmer tryouts will precede this meeting.  Practices begin Tuesday, May 29th (see website for practice times by age).  To participate in ZAGS, you must be able to commit to at least one dual meet, the Zeeland Classic as well as the championship meet for which you qualify.  All championship meets are the week beginning July 16th.  Please see the website for more information and the detailed practice & competition schedule.

West Michigan Swimming: Zeeland’s USA Swimming program is best known as WMS.  WMS practices twice a day with the afternoon practice going long course (meters).  WMS has more competition options throughout the summer and competes in both yards and meters.  Swimming for WMS requires more of a commitment, but the level of competition requires such.  Veteran swimmers ought to consider participating in WMS.  There is a WMS informational meeting in early May.  Practices begin Monday, May 7th.  Please see the website for more information and the detailed practice & competition schedule.

 

Divers:  Zeeland Recreation Department offers summer diving options too!  Each month offers a Monday & Wednesday option as well as a Tuesday & Thursday option.  Divers are coached by high school divers under the direction of head diving coach Matt Inman.

We are looking forward to working with you in the very near future.  If you have any questions, please contact one of our head coaches: Mike Torrey, boys and girls head swimming coach at mtorrey@zps.org, Lisa Engers, girls head swimming coach at lengers@zps.org, or Matt Inman, boys and girls head diving coach at minman@zps.org.

Thank you!
