A swimmer's age group is determined by their age on May 31, 2021. Anyone 18 or under on that date may swim in the Gateway league. For the 2021 season only: swimmers who are 19 years of age may participate in the season if they were on the 2019 roster.

9:45 – 10:30 am – Group 2 (swimmers age 7 – 10 not proficient in all 4 strokes*)

*Some 11 year olds may qualify for the Group 2 practice if they were a C-Dragon in 2019

SWIM MEET EXPECTATIONS

 

All swimmers are required to participate in at least 3 dual meets in order to be eligible to swim in the Gateway Conference meet at the end of the season. (The Green & White meet counts as a dual meet.)

 

All eligible swimmers are expected to swim at the Gateway Conference meet on Friday July 16 (11 & over) and Saturday July 17 (10 & under). The Conference Meet is the culmination of a summer of fun and hard work, and we want as many C-Dragons as possible to swim and represent our team!

 

2021 DIVE TEAM PRACTICE SCHEDULE

Practices begin Tuesday June 1, 2021

During the first two weeks of the 2021 summer dive season, practices will be held in the evenings from: 4:00 – 5:00, 5:00 - 6:00, or 6:00-7:00, your choice.

After these 2 weeks, divers can attend any of the following three practice times:

7:30 – 8:30 am

8:30 – 9:30 am

9:30 – 10:30 am

“Group 4” swimmers who need to dive at the 9:30 dive practice can leave swim practice 15 minutes early to dive. Please do not be late.

There is NO late practice schedule for the Dive team on Tuesdays following a swim meet. We will follow our normal practice schedule.

 

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE

 

For kids who dive from 8:30 - 9:30, and then swim in Group 2 from 9:45 - 10:30, there is a short gap between their practices. There is NO supervision outside the pool gates. We strongly encourage that these children stay inside the pool gates and wait for their Group 2 swim practice to start. This should give them plenty of time to get caps and goggles on and be ready to get in the water at 9:45.
