Practice Schedule/Cost

Groups 1, 2, 3 & 4 have different practice times. Please, bring your swimmers only to their assigned practice. For the most part, practice will proceed as scheduled; however, because our schedule is determined by the Bennington Rec. Center, practice times may be subject to change.

The Bennington Recreation Center almost always changes the times of team practices during winter and spring school vacations. The Rec. Center posts these changes on their pool schedule which is usually available 1-2 weeks before the vacation period. Events that may cause practice times to change or to be canceled include high school meets and poor weather conditions.

Unexpected scheduling changes can occur at any time. Whenever the team is informed of a change in schedule, we post these changes on our website and send out an email via Marauders-Swimming to inform families, and when possible on the bulletin board. We use multiple methods of communication to increase the likelihood of parents receiving important team messages. This is why it imperative that we have an up to date email address for every swimmer! Please help us in our efforts to communicate effectively by regularly checking these sites.
