Practice Groups

Swimmers are placed in one of four practice groups prior to the start of the season.
The coaches determine the practice groups based on ability and motivation, not age.

Questions regarding your child's practice group should be directed to Mark Anderson. 

Practice Schedule

Afternoon swim practices start on Monday, February 24th and go through June 12th. 

Due to clubhouse construction, SHST has shifted times for our afternoon practices.

We ask that you be flexible along with us, as we work to ensure the program runs smoothly and safely.

Dryland training starts March 24th: Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:20PM-6:20PM for swimmers in Practice Group 4

 For those of you who are new to the team, Dryland Training is a program offered to our Group 4 swimmers that focuses on building core strength and cardio fitness outside of the pool (we make it fun we promise!). Appropriate clothes and shoes are important for our swimmer’s safety and are required to participate. 

Please contact Jeanine Dixon ([email protected]) if you have any questions or if your participating swimmer has any injuries or limitations we should know about before training begins.   

Swimmers are not required to attend all practices. Attendance is not taken at practice. Some swim every day, while some swim only two times a week. Coaches recommend attending three practices per week in order to progress throughout the season.

Pre-Season Assessments

All new swimmers MUST ATTEND BOTH SESSIONS of our MANDATORY swim clinics with Coach Mark.  If you have questions about these assessments, please contact head coach Mark Anderson .
