If your swimmer is trying to get a qualifying time for a particular stroke, be sure to write that in the notes when RSVPing.

If you are unsure if your swimmer will be available for relays, please make sure you select the appropriate response from drop down menu about relay options. Please also write in the notes that you are not available for morning/afternoon or both.

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.
