All high school athletes must have completed a PHYSICAL before participation in a sport. If you have not done a physical and turned it in to the school, you will not be allowed to practice. Please check https://alleganps.org/athletics/ for information about when and where physicals are being offered. Occasionally, we rely on parent volunteer drivers to transport athletes to and from events. Parents must submit a ride permission form in order for their athlete to ride with other (background check approved) parents.
We have a lot of fun activities planned and a good meet lineup for next season. Anyone interested in getting into great shape while having fun with friends is welcome to come check it out.
The calendar online via our website at the link shown above will be the official calendar. We will do 3:15-5:15 pm practices Monday-Friday. On days when there is a two-hour early release, we will also practice 3:15-5:15. On no-school days, practice times will be determined and communicated to the team when the information becomes available. Expect to have practice every day.
If practice begins at 3:15, that means that team stretching begins at 3:06 and the team will enter the pool at 3:15. For freshmen and first-year swimmers, lane lines must be put in before the stretching for swimming practice begins. The last hour of each practice will be “dryland”, which will include a combination of weights, calisthenics, yoga and stretching. On District 2-hour Early Release days, practice will run at the same time 3:15-6:15 pm.
Suggested routine for athletes:
2:33: released from school, go to locker to get books/ bag/ coat
2:35: visit teachers for help with classes
2:55: arrive at locker rooms, change to suits
3:00: fill water bottles (Freshman, Sophomores: begin putting in lane lines)
3:06: team stretching begins
3:12: Put in POP’s, caps on
3:15: Practice begins
Practices are open only to athletes. Parents, contact Coach Mark to set up a time to meet in person.
Thanksgiving and Christmas Break Practice Schedule:
Wednesday November 21- Friday November 23: No Practice
Wednesday December 26-Friday December 28: Practice 10 am- 12 pm
Wednesday January 2- Friday January 4: Practice 10 am- 12 pm
Snow Days: When we have snow (no school) days, practice is cancelled. If it is determined that we should practice and the weather and driving conditions are suitable, Coach Mark will send an email that morning to indicate that practice will be held. Each athlete’s family should make the final decision about whether it is safe enough to allow the athlete to come to practice on these days and those decisions will be respected.
