In general, there will be three practices each week. The early afternoon sessions will be 4:30-5:15 p.m.; late afternoon sessions will be at 5:15-6:30 p.m.; and the elite Nightcrawlers will practice after the pool closes. Practices times and days vary according to the team's meet schedule, so go to the team website for more details or see the first pool newsletter here.
