Fall Practice Schedules and Swimmer Breaks!
I have to finalize just a few more things with our facilities but will have the Fall Practice Schedule e-mailed and posted to the website later today.  Here are a few notes regarding the upcoming group breaks and our return to practice for the Fall season. 
1) The Senior Group will take a break from practice the week of July 22-28 (if any Seniors wish to compete in the Coast Aquatics SC Meet, we will organize workouts for you). 
2) Senior will return to practice on July 29 and will walk back up to a full schedule over the first few weeks.  I will send the exact schedule later today.
3) All swimmers in the Junior, Age Group 2, Age Group 1, and Pre-Team groups will take their break July 29-August 4.  These breaks are for all sites.
4) The Junior, AG2, AG1, and Pre-Team groups at Frank Brown Park will return to practice Monday August 5 on our Fall schedule.
5) The AG2, AG1, and Pre-Team groups in town will return to practice on Monday August 5.  For the week of August 5-11, we will swim at Mosley High School (schedule to be sent today).  We will return to Gulf Coast State College on Monday August 12 on our Fall schedule.
