Welcome

Welcome to the Kenmont Tsunami Swim Team!

Our goal is to provide a positive summer experience for our team members and their families. The team is meant to improve swim skills, while fostering good sportsmanship and teamwork, having fun and building friendships that will last from summer to summer. We hope that you are part of the swim team for many years to come!

The Tsunami swim team is one of the six founding members of the Montgomery County Swim League. The MCSL is made up of approximately 90 teams. They are divided into 15 divisions (A through O), with 6 teams per division. The teams are seeded into divisions according to the prior year's performance.

For 2019, the Tsunami’s will swim in F division. Other pools in Division I include: Cedarbrook, Franklin Knolls, Inverness Recreation Club, Merrimack Park, and Palisades.

For more information on MCSL and its rules for competition, please visit www.mcsl.org

Important MCSL Rules Requirement

The Kenmont Tsunami Swim Team welcomes you to the 2019 season and looks forward to meeting everyone at the members meeting on May 11th! If you are new to Kenmont and have swimmers interested in swimming on the team this year, we would love to meet you and welcome you to the team. There is a MCSL rule that is directed towards swimmers that swam for other MCSL teams last year, so please read below to see if it will affect your swimmer.

  • If your swimmer was on the Tsunami swim team last year, there is no need to do anything further.
  • If your swimmer was on a different MCSL team last year, did they swim in “B” meets only (Wednesday nights)? If so, there is no need to do anything further.
  • If your swimmer was on a different MCSL team last year, did they swim in “A” meets or “A” and “B” meets? If so, this rule will affect you. Parents are required to fill out a form with MCSL to request a transfer. This request needs to be sent to MCSL (cc: pbeukema@verizon.net) by May 1st. This form can be found at www.mcsl.org or http://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/pDZSnWVXfM81rJKqeH4v

If you have any questions or concerns, or you are seeing this after May 1 and your child falls into this group, please don’t hesitate to call or email Peter Beukema at 240-876-3437 or pbeukema@verizon.net

According to County regulations, at the first sound of thunder the lifeguard and / or the pool manager will announce the pool is closed. At that time all members must be either in the clubhouse, or in their cars in the parking lot. From the last sound of thunder, the pool will remain closed for at least 30 minutes. If lightning is seen, the pool will be closed for 1 hour and will remain closed from the last visual of lightning. If the weather looks questionable, please DO NOT drop your child off without confirming that there is practice or a meet.
