SUMMER RACE TEAM REGISTRATION IS NOW OPEN! Summer Race Team registration is now OPEN!!!  Follow this link OR click on the “Summer Team Registration” on the homepage.

 

This registration is ONLY for the BLUE and YELLOW group swimmers AND NEW High School Prep swimmers (grades 8-12) that would like to continue swimming June-July.  Current XG Blue and Yellow swimmers have their last practice on April 11. Current PHS Blue and Yellow swimmers have their last practice on May 23. Current Prep, Gold, JV, JV+, Varsity and Senior swimmers do NOT need to re-register, as your membership is continuous through July 2019.

 

Summer Race Team and the High School Prep practices June 10-July 21 and includes:

  • 3 Dual Meets (6/21, 6/28 and 7/10)

  • Team breakfast (July 19 from 8-9:30am)

  • Championship meet entry (July 20 from 7:30am-3pm)

  • Awards Day Celebration (July 21 at 3:00pm)

 

Practices offered for the "Race Team" (blue and yellow levels) on MW, TTh or MTWTh (twice/week for $375 or 4x/week for $475) 9:00-9:45am, 2:15-3pm, 5:15-6pm, 6:00-6:45pm, 6:45-7:30pm (once you choose your day/time class, you practice at that time for the entire 6 week session.)

 

The High School Prep group (for those entering 8-12th grade) will have practices offered 7 times/week.  Come to as many as you are able! MW 8-9am, MW 5-6pm, TTh 7-8am, Sat 10-11am .   If you are CURRENTLY swimming with the Prep Group, you do NOT need to register for the summer session.  If you have a NEW swimmer joining us in June, please register through the site.

 

If you are coordinating your other swimmers, the summer practice schedule will begin on June 10 and will be as follows:

  • Senior- MWF 7-9am, TTh 6:30-9am, Sat 8-10am

  • Varsity- M-F 7-9am, Sat 8-10am

  • HS Prep- MW 8-9am, MW 5-6pm, TTh 7-8am, Sat 10-11am

  • JV+- M 7-9am, TWTh 4:15-5:15pm, F 7-9am, Sat 8-10am

  • JV- TWTh 4:15-5:15pm, Sat 8-10am

  • Gold 1- M 4:15-5:15pm, TTh 8-9am or 5:15-6pm (*chose morning or evening, no signing up, just come to the one that works best for you that day)

  • Gold 2- M 5:15-6pm, F 4:30-5:15pm, Sat 9-10am

 

If you are uncertain if your blue or yellow group swimmer will join us, it's good practice to reserve a spot and select "pay by check" before it fills up. This saves on unnecessary credit card refund fees (they really added up last year!)  If your first choice of day/time/location is unavailable, please select a class that would work AND email the office to get on the waitlist that works best for you. If you end up NOT joining us, please let me know BEFORE we start on 6/10.

 

If you are unsure if your Yellow grouper will be invited to the Gold group tryout, the best thing to do is register for the next session of the Race Team to ensure a spot.  The coaches evaluate the swimmers during the final two weeks of the session and we will send an email to those who are ready to tryout the next group. If they make it, the fees will be applied to the new group’s pay structure.

 

If your Blue or Yellow grouper will be taking Summer off, but wants to swim this Fall, mark your calendars for 7/1.  That is the date when the registration will open for the September-November session (“Fall Race Team”.)

 

Swimmers in the Gold, JV, JV+, Prep, Varsity and Senior groups do NOT need to register for this “Summer Race Team” session; this is ONLY for those in the Blue/Yellow group.

 

CROSSGATES SWIMMERS:  Spring XG Race Teamers- your session ends April 11.  If you’d like to continue swimming for the last 6 weeks of the PHS Spring session, fill out the form .  

 

Gold, JV, JV+ and Prep- with so many of you making different choices for the spring/summer, can you also fill out this form ?  Remember, continuing with BAY while you are on your cabana team is allowed!  I bet your coaches would actually encourage these workouts!!

 

RACE TEAM MAKEUP PRACTICES: Since we will be having some days when the pool is closed by the school for on-campus events, we will be preemptively offering additional Race Team practices for those swimming at PHS in the blue and yellow groups.  Please mark your calendars to see if your swimmer is available for any of these EXTRA workouts (no additional cost):

  • Friday, April 5 from 4:30-5:15pm

  • Saturday, April 6 from 10-11am

  • Friday, April 12 from 4:30-5:15pm

 

PHS Race Team will change on the following days:

  • Wednesday, April 10 (possible 6 and 6:45pm classes will still run and 5:15 swimmers can do dryland at 5:15 OR attend 6:00 or 6:45pm at PHS OR swim at Crossgates that day instead)

  • Wednesday, May 1 (no practice at all)

  • Wednesday, May 22 (all MW Race Teamers will be invited to a huge last day of practice on Thursday, 5/23 instead!)

  •  

UPCOMING DRYLAND FOR JV/JV+ AND MORNINGS FOR V/S: PHS JV/JV+ dryland days: 4/3 and 4/10.  Afternoons off for Varsity/Senior (morning swim only): 4/3, 4/10 and 4/11. This does not pertain to Gold, Prep or Race Team swimmers.

 

PRIVATE LESSONS: Looking for a bit of “tutoring” for your swimmer?  Log into the site, click on the “Events” tab/ “Private Lessons” link for available one-on-one lessons for your swimmer.  All lessons are held at PHS, coached from out of the water, are 25 minutes in length and $30/lesson billed to your BAY account.
