Good afternoon, We had a great turn out for our costume practice on Friday! Feel free to send me more pictures if you were not able to attend -- I’d love to see them! This week is our virtual meet and I’m very excited to get the kids racing. Unfortunately we are not a place where we can have parents and swimmers inside the tent, so no spectators this Friday. I will live stream the meet on Facebook for parents to watch. Seniors will warm up from 4:00-5:00, everyone else...

Good afternoon! We had another fun week of swimming! Seniors, juniors and the age group all did a test set this week. A test set is a set that we record times and will repeat again in the future. These sets are a good way of making swimmers accountable for their swimming and help us see improvement. This week we have our first swim clinic! Saturday from 9-10 am. Seniors will practice 8-9. Reminder that payment is due Wednesday! All practices are normal this week! NEPTUNES: I added a small...

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a good weekend! Last week we had a lot of fun at practice and worked really hard. I'm looking forward to another great week with each group. I sent home flyers with the junior, age group and Neptune swimmers for our swim clinic that we will be hosting October 24th. This is a great opportunity to work with the senior group in the water on stroke technique. This isn't just for the team -- if you know some swimmers that want to join us...

Good morning Courtside Families, It was a great week back in the water! All groups focused on stroke work this week. This was our first week of our new group the Neptunes and they did awesome. Practices were pretty light this first week back, and intensity will be increasing over the next two weeks. This week all groups will be focusing on kick and underwaters. Looking forward to another great week of swimming. AGE GROUP PRACTICE UPDATE: After this first week with the Neptunes and with tryouts, I am changing...
