Your swimmer can join our team
anytime during the year if they are able to meet our minimum
proficiency requirements. Swimmers should be level three or
above and be able to swim one complete 25m lap of
the pool using freestyle or backstroke in order to join the
team. Our practice schedule depends upon the Rec.
Center pool schedule, but a general overview of our winter season
schedule is outlined below. The summer schedule varies from
summer to summer, please feel free to contact us for more specific
practice schedule information. Once your swimmer has joined
the team your family will have access to our full web site which
contains detailed information regarding specific practice groups'
practice and meet schedules.
During the school year, practice for our
younger, less experienced swimmers will generally begin at 4 p.m.
Newer swimmers to the team may start in a second group whose
practice time will be 4:45-5:30. Swimmers in these groups will
normally practice Monday through Thursdays.
More experienced swimmers will have
practice schedules later in the evenings and Friday after school.
These swimmers will also have weekend practices depending
upon availability of the pool and the meet schedule.
Swimmers do not have to attend every
practice session, (Parents can choose which days to send their
swimmer to practice) however we recommend at least 3 days per
week for new swimmers just joining the team.
Swimmers should bring goggles, swim suit,
and towel for practice. Paperwork and registration can be filled
out by parents before or after practice.
