All swimmers must attend and participate in a minimum of 3 Serpent practices per week unless they fall under the following categories:
A swimmer that is sick, out of town or participating in camps must notify the Serpent head coach to be eligible for that week's meet.
A swimmer actively attached and participating with a club swim team will attend and participate in a minimum of 2 Serpent practices per week. Provide the name of your club team and coach to the Serpent head coach.
A swimmer aged 15-18 with a documented summer job will attend and participate in a minimum of 2 Serpent practices per week. Provide place of employment to the Serpent head coach.
If practices are canceled for any reason all swimmers get credit for that practice.
Coaches will take attendance at each practice. If your swimmer arrives late make sure they check in with the coach. *Note: strict attendance will begin with summer practice hours.
If your family is on vacation during the week but home for the Saturday swim meet your swimmer will be allowed to participate in the meet IF you have informed the head coach prior to the meet being seeded.
Once school is out there are 9 practice options, 2 per day and one on Friday.
Morning practices are the preferred times since the pool is closed and our team has the entire pool for practice.
Evening practices are for those who are unable to make the mornings due to working parents, camps, etc. The evening practice is during open pool hours and we are allowed 3-4 lanes.
Practices are open for parents to watch.
We do ask that you respect the coaches limited time on deck with the swimmers. Please do not talk to them during practice. You are free to email them or the team rep through the website. You can always speak to the team representative.
