Unfortunately, Swim Team Practice will NOT begin on Monday, June 2 due to a crack and leak in the big pool. The small pool should open as planned this weekend. The big pool should be open by Friday, June 6.

The first practice for swim team will be Wednesday, June 4 at 9:00, 10:00, and 11:00. Plans are to have a light practice and dryland in the small pool on Wednesday.

Swim Team Practice Starts June 2!

Swim Team practice begins Monday, June 2 (as long as the pool is open).

Practice times are as follows:
  • 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.: Advanced and/or Older swimmers
  • 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.: Advanced and/or Experienced Younger Swimmers
  • 11:00 a.m. - Noon: All 8 and under and/or 1st year Swimmers

Please Note:

  • This year practice times will not be adjusted for other activities (summer camps, VBS, etc.). If your swimmer cannot make the scheduled time slot because of other commitments, they are welcome to swim at another time slot.
  • Swimmers can move up time slots depending on work/improvement at any time. Talk to Clif or Katie prior to switching time slots.
  • If you don't know which time slot your swimmer should be in, please talk to Clif or Katie.
  • With three practices, each lane will have only 3-4 swimmers which will provide better instruction and more time doing strokework.
