Parents are welcome to remain on deck during practice times, but are asked to sit near the shallow end of the pool (away from the lanes themselves). The coaches need to concentrate on the kids in the water for both instruction and safety. If there are questions or comments for the coaches, please speak to them before or after practice--not while the kids are in the water. Or, email our head coach, Jeff, at headcoach@tallgrasslightning.com. Thank you.
