GREATER PHILADELPHIA AQUATIC CLUB 2017-2018 PRACTICE SCHEDULES

DRYLAND:
Some practice groups include dryland time (strength, conditioning, and core exercises done on land). This is a REQUIRED element of our program.  All swimmers are expected to be full participants in all aspects of their respective groups, be it in the water or dryland. Swimmers cannot skip dryland and just attend in-water practices. Swimmers who cannot attend the regular dryland sessions are not a fit for this program and should look into one of our groups that do not hold dryland sessions.

There are a number of times (especially from November 15th through March 30th) that practices have to be canceled or modified due to facility rentals, high school swimming commitments, and holidays.  These dates are posted on the team calendar which can be found on our website.  There are other times where practices have to be changed or canceled due to weather or other last minute emergency situations.  When these events happen we will do our best to notify everyone as quickly as possible.  In order to get the information as quickly as possible, everyone is urged to follow @GPACSwimming on Twitter and have their email addresses and cell phone numbers verified online through the team website.

The planned alteration or canceling of practices has already been worked into the price of the groups for the year.

*From Nov 28th-Feb 15 Tuesday and some Friday practices are as follows: Elite & Jr Elite: 4-7pm, Senior 1 4-6pm; Mini 5:40-7pm @ GPAC Swim School, Gold 1 & Gold 2 6-7:15pm.  Due to the size of our Elite, Jr Elite, and Senior 1 groups we may have 1 group come in for a morning practice on Tuesdays on a rotating basis throughout the high school meet season. There will also be Fridays during this time period when there are high school meets hosted at GCIT. When this happens we will follow our Tuesday timeline as closely as possible with practice times included for the groups who swim Friday but not Tuesdays.

FINALLY: There may be days and times where practices have to be changed or canceled due to events or meet rentals at GCIT, inclement weather, or other unforseen circumstances beyond our control.
