What are Time Trials?
Time Trials are an opportunity for swimmers to get times in as many strokes as they can in a meet-like setting. Swimmers are encouraged to swim all four strokes and may be asked to swim a stroke that they do not consider their favorite. Coaches would like to see times of their swimmers when they swim the different strokes. All teams in the NVSL (Northern Virginia Swimming League) have Time Trials about a week or two after practice begins and before the first  Meet. There is no scoring in Time Trials. The only swimmers attending Time Trials are Highlands' swimmers. Time Trials are held in the competition pool at Highlands. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR SWIMMERS TO OBTAIN TIMES IN AS MANY EVENTS AS POSSIBLE PRIOR TO OUR FIRST MEET.
Time Trials is for Swim Team members only. Mini Whompers do not participate in Time Trials.
In 2019, we will be taking the Highlands Swim Team Picture before the start of warmups. Mini Whompers are encouraged to be in the picture as well. Please arrive to the pool no later than 7:20 and wear your 2019 Highlands Team Shirt. We are hoping to have everyone on the team in the picture this year!
During the Team Picture, we will have a Parents' Meeting with coffee and pastries in the Turtle Shell. Please join us to learn about details on the upcoming season.
We will have a short period of warm-ups immediately following the team picture and then our events will begin at 9:00am. We will aim to be finished by 11:30am.  
Where do Swimmers go?
Swimmers will be asked to join their fellow teammates up on the grassy area above the competition pool. They will be supervised by our coaches. Parents are encouraged to help Time, volunteer with merchandise and to help with the family luncheon as opposed to joining their children up in the grassy area. The swimmers will be monitored by our coaches. 
What should swimmers wear?
For the Team Picture, Swimmers should wear their 2019 Team Shirt. For the Swim Meet, Swimmers should wear their team suit if they have one or other appropriate racing style suit. For the boys, this means no board shorts or trunks. Instead either jammer or brief style suits. For the girls a racing style one piece suit. All swimmers should wear swim caps and proper fitting goggles.  
After Time Trials- Swim Team Family Lunch

Please join us for the 2019 Whomping Turtles Post-Time Trials Lunch! Lunch will be served from about 12:00 - 2:00pm in the Upper Grassy Area. Grilled hamburgers/hotdogs, fixins', sides and ice cream. We will also have kid & adult beverages. All Swim Team & Mini Whomper Turtles and their families are invited!

Mini Whompers do not participate in Time Trials.
