Some swimmers or parents feel that they are not ready for a swimming competition yet. The only way to be comfortable and confident in the water is to try out all aspects of swimming. Even if a swimmer can only do one race, that is enough to get them into the sport of competitive swimming. The way we create an atmosphere of teamwork and community is to get everyone cheering for their teammates, and the friendship and respect of one another will show in and out of the water. 


This page will be updated with the dates when they are decided upon by the Head Coaches of each team. 

Listed below are the groups and practice times for Winter 2022.
