2018 Competitive Wellington Swim Team Summer Practice starts on Tuesday, May 29. Mini Dolphins begin on Monday, June 18th. **PRACTICE SCHEDULE SUBJECT TO UPDATES BASED ON CHANGES IN POOL AVAILABILITY
The Wellington Dolphins only have practices in the evenings until the Manassas City schools are out, then the following Monday, practices are offered in the mornings as well as a reduced evening schedule. While, we offer both morning and evening practices, we ask that once a swimmer chooses a practice schedule, to stick with that schedule so the Head Coach can ensure the practices are appropriately staffed.
WEEK ONE:The first week of practice will be Tuesday through Friday since the Monday is Memorial Day. WEEK TWO: The second week, practices will run Monday through Thursday, with the Friday night practice devoted purely to Starts/Turns/Finishes so swimmers can have a break before Time Trials. WEEK THREE: There will be no practice Friday in order to allow for rest and setup for the first dual-meet of the season. WEEK FOUR to END: The regular Summer AM and PM schedule begins the first Monday after the City of Manassas schools are out. Please Note-Practice Schedules may be adjusted to balance lane capacity.
