Attendance at Practice
Attendance at practice is critical. Even with excused absences, you team is
still practicing and developing a chemistry that will allow your coach to
determine a rotation and the best fit for each player. Poor attendance will
affect tournament playing time. Poor attendance includes arriving late and
leaving early.  We understand illness and school functions, and while most
players have not missed a practice, there are a few who have missed four or
more practices.  Please be sure to attend every practice for your team.

The Swarm is recognized by the IRS as a Not-For-Profit Corporation.
That means that all donations are tax-deductible. The Swarm solicits both corporate and
individual donations to offset player fees. As a result of donations, the value each player
receives is far greater than the individual player fee.
