On Ramp - If you are a Bronze/Silver swimmer that did NOT swim with us last year we hope you will attend the On Ramp session Thursday, August 30 from 5:00-6:00 pm at Saline High School. This event is for all new Bronze and Silver swimmers and is a great opportunity for members of these groups to meet their teammates, coaches, and get in the pool for a short introductory practice. During their time in the water, swimmers will get a basic overview of common drills they will work on when practice begins in order to help familiarize themselves with terminology in a small group setting. They will also be introduced to competitive swimming basics such as: circle swimming, reading the pace clock, and team uniform expectations. Parents- we encourage you to come along as well as we will be able to answer any questions you may have during this time!
Senior/ Platinum - Pre Season (Optional) training begins 8/20. First official practice will be 9/4 at SHS, see schedule for more details.
