Practice Info

2018 Dolphins Practice Information

Practices are Monday - Friday, beginning the Wednesday after Memorial Day (weather permitting), at the Summerfield Pool. Tryouts for new swimmers are always the first Tuesday after Memorial Day. (See more info about tryouts at the bottom of this page).
                                             
Evening practices use four lanes of the pool during hours when the pool is open to the public. We understand that there are other commitments to spring sports and the end of the school year is hectic. Use your best judgment on your child's attendance. In addition to swim practice, the coaches expect to use cross-training, dry-land workouts. Be ready to swim or run!  

Time Trials
Time trials for new swimmers and/or 11/12-year-olds swimming 50s for the first time will be held before the first meet.

TRYOUTS FOR NEW SWIMMERS

6:00 – 6:30 — 8 and under

Check in with Coach when your child is ready to swim his/her lap.

*If it is easier for siblings to try out in the same time frame, that is no problem.

 

The first day of evening practices for ALL swimmers will be Wednesday, May 30. If tryouts are pushed to Wednesday, May 30, the first practice will move to Thursday, May 31.

TRYOUT REQUIREMENT: Swimmers will need to be able to complete ONE length of the pool (25 meters) of freestyle and ONE length of the pool (25 meters) of backstroke without stopping, touching the bottom, or holding onto the wall/lane rope. Coaches must see an effort of the stroke attempt. These guidelines are strict for the safety of our swimmers.
