ABOUT PRACTICING & THE PRACTICE SCHEDULE

*This information will likely change based on the number of swimmers interested in participating this year.

*While we are a competitive team, we try and make room everyone so each fall we take the number of interested swimmers and break them into like practice groups, then assign the practice times. The most novice group meets twice per week for thirty minutes while the most experienced group meets five nights per week for 1.5 hours.

*Practice is not mandatory, but we recommend attending at least two nights per week.

In past years, the practice times have looked like this:

  • Pre-Comp Group (Usually age 8 and younger); 5:00 – 5:30
  • Red Group (Novice, working on strokes but not endurance); 5:30 – 6:15
  • White Group (Intermediate, working on endurance and stroke refinement); 6:15 – 7:15
  • Blue/High School Group (Advanced); 7:15 – 8:45

ABOUT SWIM MEETS

Swim meets begin in November.  All meets are on Saturdays and run until January. There are usually eight meets and swimmers must attend at least five to qualify for the sectional swim meet. We finish the season in February and if swimmers qualify for national championships they can swim until April.
