A message from our coaches...

Check out the pictures from our recent meets on the Photos page with many thanks to our photographer emeritus Jason Tedeschi.

We are BACK at Amherst Middle School (except for Saturday practices).

Practice Schedule: Since our pool time is limited and it always takes a few minutes to get the swimmers into the pool, please arrive 10 minutes before the start of practice. All swimmers should do the UB Daily Health Check and be able to prove it!
