Practice Schedule

2022 Blasters Practice Schedule

Swimmers are expected to attend practices regularly. Swimming is a team sport, and it is important that the team practice together, under the guidance of the coach. It's also very important that relay teams get to practice together.

Swimmers should arrive at practice at least five minutes before practice starts so that they can be ready on time. All swimmers should have goggles and fins. Swimmers with long hair should wear caps. Swimmers should go directly to the coaches at practice and should wait for instructions.

*Please note that ages are to be used as a guideline. Coaches may move swimmers into different practice sessions based on their skill level.

This year our team will begin weekday practices on Tuesday, May 31 and continue through July 31. Before schools break for summer, practices are held only in the evenings. After school lets out, we switch to morning and evening practices. The team switches to a different schedule starting on Thursday, June 16.  See below for approximate practice times.

Please Note:  Practice times and locations are subject to change. Clinics are also offered during the evening practices and will be announced in advance. The clinics focus on a specific stroke or turn. The evening practices are intended to be make-up sessions for swimmers who cannot attend in the mornings. 

Some practices may focus on one stroke while others may cover multiple strokes. The team has weekly clinics to focus on specific things like kicks, starts, turns, relays, etc. Sometimes it may be for a specific age group. Clinics are optional to attend, but if your swimmer needs help in the area on which the clinic is focusing, it is a good idea to attend. The weekly newsletter will let you know in advance what will be practiced at the upcoming clinic.
