Description

FLORIDA TRAINING 2017!

This is our annual team travel trip, this program is designed to give our swimmers pre-experience on traditional college winter training trips, and is primarily targeted towards our high school and/or advanced level swimmers.

THIS TRIP IS POPULAR, due to bus space, lane space, and age appropriateness, will be using this rolling priority registration order:

  1. Now through October 20th: Inviting swimmers in National 1, National 2, and Senior levels first, you will have through Thursday, October 20th to declare your intentions, YES or NO please on the event page for all swimmers in these groups (we anticipate all swimmers that wish to attend in these groups will be able to attend IF you declare by October 20th).
  2. October 21st - November 1st: After this date, 8th graders in our National Prep program are invited to fill remaining spaces, swimmers in group 1 above may still apply during this period if spaces remain  (we anticpate several remaining spaces to be available at start of this registration).
  3. November 2nd - November 15th: Anyone outside of these groups that would like to be considered may apply for the trip, but must have demonstrated in practices to handle intense training. Swimmers in group 1 and 2 above may still apply during this period if spaces remain  (we anticpate trip to begin to fill during this time frame).
