Swim Practices

Practice Groups

Swimmers are placed in one of four practice groups prior to the start of the season.
The coaches determine the practice groups based on ability and motivation, not age.

Practice groups are assigned and communicated via email prior to the start of the season.

Questions regarding your child's practice group should be directed to Mark Anderson.
