USA Swimming is broken down into two seasons: Short Course in the Fall/Winter and Long Course in the Spring/Summer.
From September through mid-March swimmers practice and compete in 25 yard pools. Our team competes in 8-12 meets. We "peak" near early-March for championship season.
The "Long Course" season starts up following a one week break after Short Course and runs through the end of July. Competitions are held in 50 meter pools in starting in May; our team competes in 4-6 meets. We "peak" at the end of July and early August depending on Championship Season.
