Night Practice Starts!!! :)

May 29, 2018 (06:15 PM) - May 29, 2018 (08:15 PM)
May 29, 2018


Practice begins Tuesday, May 9th at 6:15pm at Splashdown 7500 Ben Lomond Park Dr., Manassas, VA 20109.

Evening practice will take place on Monday, Tuesday & Thursday.  Practice times will change when school ends.

Our 10 & Under swimmers practice from 6:15pm – 7:15pm, and

Our 11 & Up swimmers practice 7:15pm – 8:15pm.

All swimmers will be evaluated for group placement during the 1st week of practice. Our swim team enters the pool using the back gate number #5. The gate will open at 6:15pm, please be on time so we can give instructions and get right into the pool. 

Don’t forget that while the weather has finally gotten warmer, the evenings can still be cool. Please make sure to bring warm clothes, especially for your younger swimmers. Weather can be tricky too. Rain does not usually cancel a practice, but thunder and lightning will at least delay getting into the pool. Please check the team site and our Facebook page for weather related practice updates.

If you have any questions about practices or meets, please check the website or ask a Board Member so the coaches can focus on the swimmers.

One thing to remember at all times, coaches and swimmers are the only ones allowed on pool deck. Parents are NOT allowed to sit on pool deck at all.

Here is a checklist of the things you need to prepare for the 2018 season.

  1. Got everything the kids need to swim?
    1. Swim suit – Girls wear a one piece suit. Boys wear swim shorts/Jammer/brief
    2. 2 towels – 1 to dry off with and 1 to keep warm
    3. 2 Goggles – makes it easier for your swimmer to see where they are swimming. Bring an extra set just in case your first googles break.
    4. Water bottle – to keep hydrated during practice.
    5. Tennis shoes – for dryland workouts (coaches will let you know if you will be doing dryland)
    6. Warm clothes to change into for after practice
  2. Check out other information on the Website

    Dates and Time for important events and activities are on the BLST calendar!

    Under the ABOUT dropdown tab select the WHY VOLUNTEERS information to review a list of other volunteer positions. Each family is expected to participate in some capacity because of the number of people necessary to run a swim meet.
