Swim Team Practice Schedule

Swim team practice begins Tuesday, May 28th with evening practices.  Starting June 10th there will be a morning and evening practice option. Practices are at the Coton Commons Pool

No Swim Practice on Wednesdays.

No Swim Practice on July 4th.

Only bring your swimmer to one practice per day, not two! (We have two practices to support the size of the Lansdowne Lightning team. Attending multiple practices defeats this purpose.)  Practices are organized by age and are 45 minutes.

Talking to Coaches

Practices need to start on time and be uninterrupted. If parents want to talk to any of the coaches, please email them or wait until after ALL practices have finished. Also, remember that our practices are back-to-back. When your child’s session is over, the coach may be starting the next group’s practice, and not be available for personal discussions.


The coaches will be working on the basics at first (kicking, stroke drills, etc.), slowly moving toward full swim strokes. The coaches will talk with the swimmers in each age group and let them know what they need to work on. Swimmers will be broken up into different lanes depending on their stroke ability.

Discipline: If a swimmer becomes a problem and disrupts other swimmers during practice, a coach may dismiss him or her from the rest of that practice. The coach will contact the parents to discuss any ongoing discipline problems.
