Spring 2021 Registration is open!

We are excited to announce that registration for the 2021 Spring Season is now open for existing LVST families! Registration will open for new families on Friday, April 2, 2021.


Season Dates

We’ll have a shorter season in 2021, and once again we’re not in our home pool. We’ll be swimming at 2 different pools for the duration of the season, specifics below.
 

Season starts: Monday, April 12

Season ends: Wednesday, June 30
 

Register online here

Note: Due to limitations on the number of swimmers per lane, there is a cap on the number of swimmers we can have in the pool each day, and by extension, a cap on the number of swimmers we can support on the team at this time. But we are optimistic health guidelines may change, which would expand the number of swimmers we can have on the team. 

If you find registration has already filled but would like to join if and when we are able to expand, please send an email, with the subject line “Wait List”, to [email protected] . This will be organized by a first come, first served basis.


Registration Fees

10 and under: $330

11+: $450
 

Practice Times
We are swimming in two different pools this season, and lane limitations mean we will have small cohorts of swimmers at different times. Each cohort will have specific swim times.

Mon-Fri we are at the Terra Linda Recreation Center pool, with different age groups swimming on separate days. Saturday mornings, we’ll have an extra session for all swimmers at the Terra Linda High School pool. Please note the schedules below for each group. You’ll have the chance to request the schedule(s) that works best for your swimmer, but also be aware that we cannot guarantee your first choice, as groups will be determined both by age and ability.

11+ -- 2 groups

Group A 

Mon., Wed. & Fri. at Terra Linda Rec Center pool: 3:30-4:20pm

Sat. at TLHS pool: 11:55am-12:55pm

Group  B

Mon., Wed. & Fri. at Terra Linda Rec Center pool: 4:30-5:20pm

Sat. at TLHS pool: 10:45-11:45am
 

10 and unders -- 3 groups

Group C

Tues. & Thurs. at Terra Linda Rec Center pool: 3:30-4:10pm

Group D

*Once your registration has been approved, we will send you a questionnaire asking for your preferred group and time as well as any friends you would like to see your child grouped with.  While we cannot offer any guarantees, we will do our best to accommodate.
 

Swim safety
In past years, we have been able to offer swim school to help build swimming skills before new swimmers can move up to the team. Due to space limitations and Covid safety, we are not able to offer these classes this year. If your child is brand-new to swimming, please wait until next year to join us on the LVST.

 

Covid safety at the pool
Keeping our swimmers safe while having the best season we can is our number one goal. Things at the pool will be looking a lot different this year. Parents will not be allowed on deck. Showers and bathrooms will not be open at the pool (except for emergencies) . Swimmers will need to arrive and depart on time, as we only have 10 minutes to switch over between groups, during which time coaches and lifeguards will sanitize common areas for the next group. Parent volunteers (you!) will sign up to check temperatures of swimmers as they arrive. We will really need your help to make sure pool transitions run as smoothly and safely as possible. 
 

Swim meets
There will be no head-to-head meets this season. Instead, we’ll be holding our own time trials and submitting our times to the league for the leaderboard. While it can’t replace the fun and excitement of a true meet, we feel it will be important to give our swimmers goals to work towards and times to beat, even if it’s only last month’s time.
 

Meet the Coaches
On March 31, we’ll be hosting a Zoom call where families can meet our coach and ask questions about the season. Please see the email that was previously sent out or check lvst.org for details
 

Thanks for your patience and understanding with all the changes this season. We can’t wait to see your swimmers in the water.
