2019 Spring Practice Schedule Clarification:

*For a long time now, Forest Park has been one of the only teams to start its season on the first day allowed under County rules. The earlier the start, the more time the swimmers get in the water and the more prepared they are when meets begin. We’ve been extremely lucky and blessed to have had such an available staff in our preseasons. Most teams don’t start their seasons until late April or early May or not until Time Trials. We realize this may affect the schedules of many of our families, but this is the only option if we want to get the kids swimming before May.  We have also split the 8-under practice. It will run much as it does when it is split in the summer.

*

*Mini-Flyer tryouts are on March 15th  5-7 pm (tentative)  and March 29th  9 am – 12 noon by appointment only; contact membership to schedule a time slot. 

*

*Sometime after mini-flyer tryouts on March 30th, a list will be emailed out detailing which practice time each swimmer has been placed.

*In 2014, we had such a large group of 13-ups, their practice was often overcrowded. In the event we retain similar numbers in 2019, we will be having some 13-14’s practicing 7:15-8:30 and some 8:15-10. This will help ALL swimmers by giving them more lane space. If this ends up as the case for 2019, a list of what practice each swimmer should attend will be posted after Time Trials. Special scheduling accommodations may be made upon request. However, bear in mind this is being done for the benefit of ALL swimmers.

Afternoon is not a substitute for morning. It’s for those unable to attend mornings due to a prior commitment. Those wishing to attend double practices need to clear it with Coach Jeff before summer to make sure there will be adequate room.
