Information for May 30 – June 16 practices:
For those first few weeks of practice when we are afternoons only, I want to remind everyone that we do not have access to the whole pool, we have to fit our team into 4 lanes. How does this work smoothly?
1. Swimmers attend the practice that matches their age on June 1, 2023 (this is your swimmer’s “age” for the whole season).
4:30 – 5:15 PM: 11 and older
5:15 – 5:45 PM: 8 & Under
5:45 – 6:30 PM: 9-10 year olds
6:30 – 7:15 PM: 11 and older
2. Have your swimmer on deck, ready to swim, with their gear in hand a few minutes before their practice begins.
3. Go to that soccer party/graduation/chorus concert/scouting event. We know the first weeks are jam-packed with other activities, please don’t ask the coaches to come to a different practice so that you can do both, just skip swim practice for that day.
4. Get the Stack Team App, this is what we use for weather updates, changes to practice because of an unexpected incident in the pool, and reminders. Once you have the app, search for Virginia Hills Swim Club and then request to be added to All Members group and the Tidal Wave group.
