Practices begin the week of April 12. Practice times are listed below. We have assigned practice times per age group specified to maximize distancing in the pool.
6 PM: Swimmers age 9 & Under
7 PM: Swimmers age 10 - 12
8 PM: Swimmers age 13 & up
We practice 4 days a week, Monday – Thursday at the Rec Center pool on Atlantic Ave. in Fernandina Beach. (see FAQ tab for google map) There is no "rule" for how often swimmers need to practice. We do recommend a minimum of 2 practices a week during swim meet season to help swimmers prepare for the upcoming swim meet on Saturday.
NOTE: Coaches may change swimmer's practice times based on skills and availability. Also, there is flexibility to switch practice times to accommodate parents' schedules and/or swimming with siblings. To request a change in practice time, email us at [email protected] We will do our best to accommodate requests as long as it doesn't impact safety.
We will still practice in the rain but will not practice is there is lightening. Stay tuned to the Thor weather alert system on our home page for the most up to date weather status. Also, be sure to sign up for text alerts for last minute notifications.
