TC Sharks Update - please complete survey

    Dear TC Sharks Families:

    Hi, I’m the new Communications Director for the TC Sharks Team and look forward to keeping you updated with all the Sharky News. For this email, I’m asking that you do 3 things:

    1.Complete the survey below;

    2.Pencil in the tentative dates for the 2021 Sharks Season; and

    3.Check out the info regarding the Austin High School swim team tryouts for next fall if your child or anyone else you know would be interested.

    We’re excited that over 80% of you responded to our last survey saying you were interested in being back in the pool this summer. But, for planning purposes (specifically how many coaches we may hire and what ages the team will be open to this year), we need to have a rough idea of how many kids will likely swim and how many from each age group. To help us quantify the interest for this summer, please complete this short survey:

    Right now, our tentative plan is:

      • May 4-18: Registration
      • June 8-26: Swim practice Tuesday – Friday at Hilltop
      • June 26: TC Sharks Intramural Team-Only Meet
      • June 28 – July 2: No practice
      • July 6 – 24: Swim practice Tuesday – Friday at Hilltop
      • July 24: TC Sharks Intramural Team-Only Meet

      *Message from Austin High School swim coach: see below

      Please complete the survey above as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or via my personal information below.

      Thanks & GO SHARKS!!!!

      P.S. - You’re receiving this email because you were registered with the TC Sharks in 2019. We don’t have a 2020 roster for obvious reasons. So, to get the word out for this summer’s 2021 season, we have to start with the last roster we have to communicate until we have a 2021 roster.


      Good Morning Everyone,

      I need your help. I need to get this information out to as many people as possible who might be interested. I've got Mrs. Garcia and Coach Rosenthal here on campus helping me get it on all the appropriate school/athletic websites as well in our Maroon Update. But I also need to get this word out to all the local club and summer league swim teams. If you are a swimmer or a parent on a local club or summer league team, will you please pass this information on to any incoming swimmers you know who may be interested in joining us next year?! If needed, I'll run one more round of tryouts in August right before school starts, but I'd rather get all these done summers. On each of the tryout mornings, I'll need maybe 5-6 of our current swimmers there to help me get times for the kids in the water. Thanks!!

      We have three dates available for TRYOUTS

      (1) Thursday, April 22

      (2) Thursday, April 29

      (3) Thursday, May 6

      These will all start promptly at 7:15am and should be over before 8:00am. This will give the kids time to get to school or home in time for their first class of the day. These tryouts will take place at the pool where we train, the Austin Swim Club on Southwest Parkway. Swimmers should arrive by 7:00 with their suits already on and have a mask on as they enter the facility. Parents will not be allowed into the facility/on the pool deck during the tryout (per Austin Swim Club policy), but they are welcome to watch from outside the fence. If you have any further questions about the tryout process, please contact Coach Goodwyn at the email address below.
