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.

Swimmers are not required to attend all practices. Attendance is not taken at practice. Some swim every day, while some swim only two times a week. Coaches recommend attending three practices per week in order to progress throughout the season.
Dryland training will be offered for those swimmers in Practice Group 4 from 5:15 PM to 6:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting Tuesday, March 20th.
For those of you new to the team, Dryland training is a program offered to our older swimmers which focuses on building core strength and aerobic fitness. It takes place outside of the pool before swim practice.
