If your swimmer(s) do not have a time for an event, please refer to the Age Group Time Standards. From there, you will use the 'B' time standard + 5 seconds when entering a time. The reason for this is some meets will not let you enter a 'NT'. This is only for meets that do not require a qualifying time to enter.


Important Info

With the weather getting colder quicker, please make sure your swimmer(s) are properly equipped with warm clothing. Parkas, close-toed shoes, sweats, shirts, etc. are preferred when arriving and leaving. We want the young ones to be healthy and avoid any illness due to cold weather. A common saying that has been going around is: You know it's cold out when Coach Lee is wearing pants

- Alll swimmers need to have fins, hand paddles, snorkels, and water bottles on deck each day. Kickboards and Pull Buoys are provided however, they are shared among all groups. We will be using equipment this week. Please put your FIRST and LAST name on each equipment you purchase.

-- Please make sure to arrive on time, or as close as you can, to practice. Coaches have set up lane assignments and if people are not there at the start we move around to create space. If you or your child are coming in later than 10min after we start it takes time away from those in the water to try and re-rearrange lanes. If you know you are going to be late due to conflict(s), reach out to either myself or Coach Christina that way we know and can plan ahead. 

--- Team uniforms, spirit wear and training gear can be found at Elsmore Swim Shop in the Countrywood Shopping Center.   Click here for UPDATED order form.
