Things to bring to practice:

  • A positive attitude
  • Sneakers and socks for dry-land
  • water bottle
  • towel (thick for land drills)
  • flippers (fins)
  • swim cap
  • goggles
  • warm clothes
  • Tote bag to store and carry all of the above.

You must wear a 1-piece swimsuit for practice.

Some other considerations:
All equipment, towels, clothing, etc., should be clearly marked with the swimmer’s name so that lost items may be returned.


Time Trials
Time Trials will be held on Saturday, June 12th, from 7:00-10:00 AM 
at the Mock Meet.  This involves timing swimmers in each of the four competitive strokes: freestyle, breast, back and butterfly. This information is used to determine squad assignment and as a baseline for individual record-keeping for the season.
