2019-2020 Season Practices Begin on Monday, November 4, 2019
 
The Sudbury Swim Team offers four (4) practices a week from Monday through Thursday at the Atkinson Pool in Sudbury.  Swimmers are required to attend at least two (2) practices per week but are welcome to attend all practices offered.  The initial assignment of a practice schedule occurs at the beginning of the season.  A swimmer's assigned practice session is strictly a coaching decision based on the swimmer's age, the assessment of the swimmer's stroke development and overall technique.  This ensures the necessary structure to each and every practice. Please do not ask SST coaches to switch your child from one practice to  another.   There is no guarantee that siblings will swim in the same practice.  
 
Each practice consists of a defined warm-up period, a specific drill period focusing on technique, a endurance set which ensures swimmers improve their overall cardiovascular fitness, and a warm-down period where starts and turns are emphasized.  Practices begin the first week in November and continue through the first week in March.
 
Please make every effort to have your child on deck ready to swim at least five (5) minutes before their practice begins.  Late swimmers will miss important warm-up and stroke drills and are disruptive to those swimmers who arrived on time.  
 
PLEASE NOTE THAT IT IS OUR TEAM POLICY THAT PARENTS ARE PROHIBITED FROM THE POOL DECK DURING PRACTICES.
