Express UPDATE




November 22, 2020

Dear Express Families ..

I am VERY pleased to announce that we are able to offer a couple of options for water training to Express swimmers!  Both options will strictly follow the IDPH requirements of 1 swimmer per lane and NO direct coaching will take place.    Express coaches will have work-outs available for swimmers or you can choose your own!  Coaches will be acting in a supervisory capacity at 5 Seasons.  Swimmers at FMC will work independently and at this point it is unknown if Express coaches may be allowed to be on deck in a supervisory capacity.   We are recommending that swimmers in Silver, Gold & Senior training groups take advantage of these opportunities and sign-up for as many sessions as you can. 


We will be following our scheduled Express Swim Team pool time in the indoor pool: 

Mondays:  8:30-9:30 PM

Wednesdays:  7:45-8:30 PM       8:30-9:15 PM       7:45-9:15 PM

Fridays:  4:30-6 PM and 7:30-8:30 PM


5 Seasons has split their indoor lanes to create 8 lanes.  Swimmers will sign-up via Sign-up Genius for specific times and lanes.  Right now, only week 1 (November 16-20) is available for sign-up.  Additional weeks will be available in the next couple of days. 

Cost:  You will be billed through Express for each session you participate in at the rate of $12/hour:

45-minutes - $9      60-minute - $12     90-minute - $18




FMC is offering a completely different program.  Swimmers from all teams renting water at FMC may purchase a punch card which is good for ten 1-hour sessions.  You would schedule your sessions (times and days) directly with FMC. 

Cost:  10-Session Punch card is available for $105  (Contact FMC Directly)


Dryland work-out options are available on the Express website and are fun and challenging! 


Thank you for your patience as we work to provide options for Express swimmers to continue their training and activity.  At this point, registration for 5 Seasons lap swimming will be limited to those swimmers/families who have previously indicated interested in registering for the Winter Session 2.   In the case of FMC – families/ individual should contact FMC directly for punch card information, purchase and scheduling.  Families will be directly billed for sessions at 5 Seasons by Express.


Best Regards,

Judy Busse
