Swimmer Safety/Facility Notes:  As we start back up, and have many new faces beginning a new routine, here are just a few quick reminders that we will be reviewing with all groups this week:

  • Niles North Aquatics Center Map (NNAC)  ||  Niles West Pool Map (NW)
  • NNAC-North = 6 Lane Pool, NNAC-South = 8 Lane Pool
  • If your swimmer is under the age of 12, we encourage you to walk your swimmer into the facility.  Each high school is incredibly busy after school with athletic programs, club activities, etc.  We want to make sure your swimmer can access each pool safely.
  • After changing for workout, please bring all clothes/personal items onto the pool deck - this is where it is safest.  We are not responsible for anything lost or stolen in the locker room.   In addition, please familiarize yourself our Locker Room Policy .
  • During practice sessions, we cannot have any parents on the pool deck.  Any questions or concerns can be addressed with the Coaching Staff after practices or communicated via email.

Winter Diving Session II - WORKOUT ADJUSTMENT:     Please note that, due to the IHSA Boys Sectional Diving Warm-up on February 13, this week's diving session will moved to Tuesday, February 12th at the same times.
