REGULAR SEASON PRACTICE TIMES FOR SWIM TEAM & MINI WHOMPERS

Morning practices will start on Monday 6/14 for most swimmers and on Monday 6/21 for those who are still in school.  Practices run through Friday 7/23. Every swimmer will be placed in an assigned lane that they will report to for every practice. Swimmers will be placed in a lane based both on age and ability to allow for practices to be beneficial, safe, and fun for everyone! Session times are as follows:

Session 1: 8:15-9:30 (12 years old and older)

Session 2: 9:30-10:30 (9 year olds to 11 year olds)

Session 3: 10:30-11:30 8 year olds and younger & Mini Whompers

For the week of June 14 (when APS is still in session), we will offer swim team afternoon practice for APS students still in school and any kids in camp who cannot attend their designated swim team morning practice. (Afternoon practice is not offered for Mini Whompers).  Afternoon practice sessions the week of June 14 are 4:30-5:30 pm or 5:30-6:30pm.

Starting, Monday June 21, to accommodate schedules, we also have a regular season afternoon practice for those Swim Team members who are unable to attend their designated morning swim team practice. SWIMMERS MAY NOT ATTEND BOTH MORNING AND AFTERNOON PRACTICES ON THE SAME DAY.  Starting the week of Monday, June 21, afternoon practices will be offered on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons from 5:30 - 6:25pm for those swim team members unable to attend morning practices.  On the following evenings when there are dive meets, there will not be an afternoon practice (6/22, 7/1, 7/6, 7/8, 7/22). Please note that we only offer regular season afternoon practices for swim team.  We staff extra coaches for the Mini Whompers (and have the coaches in the water with the kids in the shallower lower pool) while they are still building up their skills and endurance.  We are not able to offer a combined afternoon Mini Whompers / Swim Team practice for that reason.
