Season Length

The season lasts from early September through the end of July and is split into two parts.  The Short Course (25yd competition) runs from September through the beginning of April.  The Long Course (50 meter competition) runs from after our April break through the end of July.  The Dolphin Group will conclude at the end of June.    There will be a 1 - 2 week break sometime in April.  The actual dates of the break, competition dates and other significant dates will be posted on the web site.

Practice Attendance

We offer between 4 - 8 practices per week, depending on which group you are assigned to.  While we do not set minimum required attendance for most groups, we do encourage swimmers to attend as many practices as possible.   Success in the sport of swimming is dependent upon a commitment to training and the opportunities to race.   Practice attendance will be used to determine promotion to higher groups, relay participation and other incentive based initiatives. 

Meets

We typically participate in 2 meets per month.  In the early part of both the Short Course and Long course, swimmers will try to achieve qualifying times for championship meets that occur at the end of each course.  The championship meets they attend will depend on their level of achievement and can encompass championship meets on the local, regional, and national levels. 

The Meets we attend are very popular with other teams and tend to close out early.  We pride ourselves in rarely getting closed out of a meet we wish to attend.  We achieve this by getting our entries in early.  Please take a look at our meet schedule, in advance, so you may identify and reserve those weekends.  When we post the sign up for a particular meet please sign up immediately that we may ensure your child's participation in the meet.  The meet sign up is can be reached from the "meets/events" tab or from the "events" section located under the scrolling text window.
