2018 SRAC Practice Schedule

(Schedule is subject to change at any time and pending City approval for pool use)

Pool time is limited and valuable!  Regular attendance and punctuality is expected and encouraged, and is important for swimmers’ development.  During the Spring and Fall Seasons, swimmers should attend a minimum of 2 practices a week.  During the Summer Practice schedule, swimmers must attend at least 3 practices a week with attendance and tardies monitored.

Kindly ensure to arrive early and be ready with your gear and sunscreen on before stated times for dryland or pool time to ensure everyone is organized and ready to go. Do not get into the pool until instructed to do so.

Please leave your fins, kickboard, and buoy by the pool near your lanes before going to dryland.  For dryland, please wear your cap and goggles on your head/neck, and bring a towel (can wear sweats/parka if cold). Younger swimmers should leave their towels and outer clothing in at dryland and proceed to get their gear and line up in assigned lanes.  Parents, please collect your swimmers' towels and clothing.  For summer dryland, please wear sneakers.

Parents may attend practices, but please refrain from communicating with coaches or swimmers during practice.  Please stay behind the water drain surrounding the pool to allow deck space for coaches to work and not distract the swimmers.  Coaches are available through e-mail and before or after practice to discuss any issues that may come up during the season.
