PRACTICE CHANGES
 
We are in the midst of the Spring Break practice changes, which are in effect until this Sunday, April 8.  You can view the full practice schedule here.
 
Spring Conditioning families, please take note of the change in practice location for PS DuPont Middle School for all this week.  We will once again have access to PS DuPont beginning on Monday, April 9.
 
 
SWIM TEAM BANQUET
 
The administrative staff is working to finalize a date and location for the swim team banquet.  The banquet will be some time in late April or early May.
 
National (Senior National Blue, Senior National Yellow, and Junior National) and Traditional (Senior, Age Group, and Developmental) group swimmers who finished swimming at the end of March are still welcome and encouraged to attend the swim team banquet.
 
More information will be emailed out separately to relevant groups once details are solidified.
 
 
LONG COURSE MEET SCHEDULE
 
The spring and summer swim meet schedule is now online.  You can view it at delawareswimteam.com>Meets & Events>LCM Meet Schedule.
 
Due to the high demand for long course meets in the entire Northeast US, across several LSCs, the window for our team entries for most/all meets will be very small.  By sending in final entries quickly and early, this ensures that Delaware Swim Team saves a spot in the meet.  Delaware Swim Team has been shut out of long course meets in the recent past for being "too slow" (as in, submitting entries for a long course meet only 2 months in advance).  So we will be much stricter in enforcing the final entry dates when we submit entries to a host team, and those that miss the final entry date are more likely to be shut out of the meet.  Please keep this in mind when spring and summer meets open for entries.
 
 
SUMMER NON-NATIONAL PRACTICE SCHEDULE
 
A tentative practice schedule for all non-National Program swimmers is now available.  This schedule will be from May 29-July 26.  You can view this tentative summer schedule here.
 
Our summer practices for non-National Program swimmers will be a little different this year from previous years.  Most noticeably, there are "half-options" available, if you want to supplement your summer swim league season with some extra work with Delaware Swim Team.  The Blue groups will work around NBSL swim meets, for instance, and the Yellow groups will work around SSL swim meets.  These half-options will be available at a discount to the full-option.  If you want to do both the Blue and Yellow groups, we have the Green groups, which give you access on all of the days.
 
Besides the Blue, Yellow, and Green options, we will also be splitting the practices up by needs.  For those who want almost all mechanics and very little conditioning, we have Mechanics options.  For those looking more for yardage and conditioning, and proportionally less mechanics, we have Conditioning options.
 
We will have more details, including pricing, for the summer non-National Program schedule in the next couple of weeks.  But, this tentative practice schedule can allow you to begin planning for the summer, if you would like to continue practicing with Delaware Swim Team in some way.


 
Thanks,

The Delaware Swim Team coaching staff
