Practice Times:

Practice times are updated on our team calendar. The majority of Level I and II USA practices will take place at North Rockford Middle School (NRMS). Please note, that this spring Level II and Level I practice times have been adjusted. 

  • Level I will practice M/W 5-6:30p NRMS and Fri 5:30-7p NRMS
  • Level II will practice M/W 6:30-8p NRMS, T/T 5:30-7p RHS and Fri 4:30-6p NRMS*

*MS & HS sports schedules may alter the above list slightly. Please look to your swimmers practice calendar on

Level III, IV and Senior groups practice mainly out of RHS. On occasion, these practices may be moved to after school at NRMS due to high school or middle swim, or water polo. If your swimmer is unable to make an earlier practice on these days due to after school activities or travel, we often try to have a later practice option available. When available, please contact Coach Terri at your earliest convenience at We request that Coaches be notified in advance.
