* National High School (HS) Boys and Senior High School Boys swim Sept. 6 – Nov. 16 and Feb. 11- last meet qualify to swim.  National High School (HS) Girls swim after their last high school meet through last meet they qualify to swim.  Any HS girl or boy whose high school does not sponsor an IHSA team may participate throughout the fall/winter season with Wheaton Swim Club.  HS Boys and Girls who DO participate on their high school teams may practice with us according to the dates above.  Prices are already prorated to take this into consideration.  Also note that the National team will include a dryland program which will begin once practices are at their full length.  Coach Bob will have full information on the dryland program.

 

** Practices that are affected by the holidays will be made up.  Information will be communicated by coaches later in season.
