Attention 8 and under swimmers

All 6u & 7/8 swimmers need to have their names written on their bodies. It makes it easier for the tent parents and ready bench as we learn all our swimmers.

Note from our coaches

Please remember that your swimmer can only practice during their age group practice time. We have divided up the swimmers to maintain the safest swim environment.


We also want your swimmers to get to know their coaches and teammates in their age groups. It's much easier to find your teammates on a relay if you already know who they are from practice.
