The swim year is divided into two seasons:
The winter, or 'short course' (SC) season runs from September to mid-March, culminating in the Inland Empire Short Course Championships. Short course meets are held in 25-yard pools like the Whitworth University pool. Typically, SWAT hosts three short course meets each year.
The summer, or 'long course' (LC) season runs from April to mid-August. Meets are generally held outside in 50 meter pools (Olympic size) like the Witter Pool in Spokane.
