Posted by Buchholz High School Swimming and Diving on Aug 10 2022 at 05:37PM PDT

Hello Bobcats!

We look forward to seeing you all at the team meet-and-greet event on Sunday, August 14! Attendance is required for all athletes or prospective athletes and at least one parent or guardian.

Here are some important details about the event:

Location: Dwight Hunter “Northeast” Pool (1100 NE 14th Street), in shady area to the right of the facility building
Time: 2:00 to 4:00 pm
Weather: It will be hot! Water and popsicles will be provided!

Athletes/parents should bring their completed team paperwork (information sheet, team code of conduct, 3 NFHS online course completion certificates) and fair share payment to turn in. Optional forms to turn in are corporate sponsorship and ACPS request to transport student (carpool) forms. All forms and clearance through the Home Campus Athletic Clearance portal are required before athletes can participate in practices and meets and for the pool portion of the meet and greet (see below). So far only about 25% of the team has completed all of the tasks on Home Campus and been officially cleared to participate, so please try to complete that process in the next few days if possible to avoid any delays in being able to participate, especially because the first swim meet is August 17!

Gear packages will be handed out when athletes have have been cleared by Buchholz and turned in all team paperwork and fair share.

At 2:00 there will be an informational meeting for parents and a team meeting for athletes, with topics including those outlined below. Parents and athletes are encouraged to bring folding chairs.

The meeting will conclude at the end of the informational portion. Athletes who have been athletically cleared through Home Campus are invited to enter the pool facility to mingle on the pool deck and swim until 4:00 pm.

We want everyone to be able to participate in the 2022 BHS Swimming and Diving season if eligible, and any questions, concerns, or need for special arrangements to participate can be sent to Coach John at or to the booster club board at
