About the McCallum Swim Team

The McCallum Knights Swim Team is a co-ed 4A competitive swim team that is open to all McCallum High School students who have the desire to compete against other 4A high school swimmers throughout the State of Texas. Any student, whether a novice or a competitor of many years standing, can join the team, where he or she will enjoy professional coaching.

As a member of the team, swimmers gain mental and physical strength, speed and stamina, while earning Physical Education credits and enjoying the camaraderie of others on a winning team. The swim season runs from late August through early Spring. For the remainder of the 2012-2013 swim season, practices will be held from 7:30pm – 9:00pm M-TH, at the Lee and Joe Jamail Texas Swimming Center, located on the campus of The University of Texas at Austin. No transportation is provided to or from practices. AISD also provides transportation to and from swim meets.

Equipment, such as swim parkas, bags, caps, warm-up suits, etc., is also provided by A.I.S.D. . The team is coached by Mr. Jeff Rudy. <jeff.rudy@austinisd.org> This is Coach Rudy's 1st year to coach a Swim Team, although he has a proven track record as one of MAC Band’s associate directors.

All athletes need to have a current physical on file in order to participate in AISD athletic programs. Physicals are only good for 1 calendar year ~ if you had a physical last year you will need another one for the 2012-13 swim season.

Boosters are needed for the 2012-2013 swim season! Please consider contributing some of your time and energy to help support the swim team. It's easy, fun, a great way to be involved with MAC, and does not require a large amount of time!
