The Glenwood Swim Team offers training and practice groups for swimmers ages 5-18.  The program is overseen by parent volunteer representatives (aka "team reps" and treasurer) who, on behalf of the pool's board of directors, manage the team's budget, hire the coaching staff, coordinate the meet volunteers and represent the team at meetings of the Montgomery County Swim League (MCSL).  The coaching staff, led this year by Head Coach Jeremy Butler, manages the practice schedule, develops the training regimen, fields the line-up for each meet, and ensures that the overall Glenwood swim team experience is fun and rewarding for kids of all ages.

It's important to remember that at Glenwood, we hold practices by age group, not ability level.  Of  course, the older swimmers typically have more demanding practices, because they are expected to swim longer distances in the meets.  Swimmers who want to challenge themselves by swimming with an older age group must consult with the coaches. 

The team practice schedule follows one set of hours while the Montgomery County public schools are still in session, and another after MCPS lets out for the summer.  Practice for the Big Team begins on Wednesday afternoon, May 29. Practice for the Pre-team begins on June 10.
