A printable practice schedule is available here for download and is also at the bottom of this this page.  Please ask questions if the charts or notes confuse you.   
Practice Schedule
  • Practice will begin on Tuesday, May 29th for every group except Rookies.  Rookies will start pratice on June 4th.

  • All children are encouraged to practice EVERY day so please bring your child to as many practices a week as your schedule allows.

  • Please practice with your Age Group unless you receive a requeset from a coach or team rep to practice "up" or "down" a group.  

  • Evening practice for everyone will be from Tuesday May 29th - Friday, June 15th.

  • Morning practice will begin on Tuesday, June 19th and go through  Wednesday, July 25th.

  • Only swimmers entered in Divisionals will practice on July 26th & 27th.

  • Please attend practice in the morning if at all possible starting June 19th.  The evening schedule starting on June 19th is subject to change or have groups combined based on attendance.  

  • Swimmers who practice with the "Rookie" group are comprised of young children (generally aged 4,5,6 but could also include 7,8) who are not yet able to swim a full length of the pool.  Coaches work in the water with these swimmers.  During the season, if a child progresses to be able to swim 25M Freestyle and 25M Backstroke unassisted they will be moved into the "Ages 8 & Under" group, regardless of age.  At that time they should also be eligible to compete in a B meet.  

  • New this season (2018): 11-12 Age Group swimmers may choose to swim with the 9-10 Age Group practice or with the 13-18 Age Group practice.  Once a selection is made we ask that you committ to that practice time for the entire season.  If you are not sure please ask coach Katie.  If we don't think you have made the correct choice for your ability level we may ask you to switch.
