This is our first Team Practice of the season!! Team Practice is held on the last Friday of the month. It is a great opportunity to have some hard work and fun in the pool. Although each month has a different activity, we often have peer teaching so there is some team bonding and interaction between our younger and older swimmers.

Mini Squad, Juniors, Super Juniors: 4:00-5:30
When: Friday November 1st, 4:30-5:30

Please remember that this meeting is for ALL club members, mini squad parents through to Academy.We encourage everyone to attend, as our attendance is recorded in our gaming grant reports and affects the decisions for how much grant money the club receives each year.
Our goal is to be finished by the time swimmers are out of their practice.
