TEAM UPDATE: June 9

What an incredible meet weekend! Thank you to all the swimmers and volunteers who made it all possible. Some great momentum moving into our final regular season meet before championships.

PRACTICE UPDATE :

This is our last week of our Outdoor Spring Schedule! We are excited to have our swimmers out of school and to be able to expand on our practice times. As a reminder, we will begin our Summer Practice Schedule on Monday, June 14th. PLEASE SEE SCHEDULE HERE or on our website under the “Practices” tab.

Our Dryland schedule will also be changing to reflect our new swim times. Dryland will still be directly before or after practices 2x per week for M, G, Jr, Sr, and N. Please look for an updated schedule soon!
