Practice Times (Please note start times)

Practices Start Tuesday May 31st

Monday - Friday

11 and up: 7:00am - 8:00am

10 and under: 7:50am - 8:45am

Dryland Practices will be at the discretion of the coach if we have to cancel due to rain. These are not scheduled into the practice season. Swimmers will need to wear comfortable clothes and tennis shoes to do an out of water practice.

As a reminder: We have the pool for a shorter amount of time this year. In order to adhere with safety guidelines, we want to make sure the swimmers have an adequate amount of time in the pool to practice. Please make note of arrival times, we need to start on time to ensure a quality practice. (This is subject to change slightly if the pool gets more lifeguards)

*Coach Alex will most likely cancel practices on the Thursdays after Wednesday night meets.
