  Hello everyone!   We are all excited to get the 2011-2012 Short Course Season going. The following is all the information you will need to get back into the swing of things.

Parent Handout –April 28, 2011 1.       Pool to Long Course - Pool will be changed over sometime in May. Our staff does not feel that it is imperative for our athletes to have LC practices. We train both under distance and over distance all year. The specific length of the pool is not as important as you might want to think. The strokes are exactly the same.  Additionally, an added bonus of training SC during LC season is the benefit of more turns in SC training and a better ability...
