PRACTICE SCHEDULE 2018-2019
Practice times are split into three teams. The Junior and Senior Teams are determined by experience, ablility and commitment level rather than by age. Team assignments are determined at tryouts for new swimmers, and before the start of the season for returning swimmers.
SWIMMERS MUST PRACTICE AT THEIR DESIGNATED PRACTICE TIME.
JUNIORS CANNOT SWIM AT THE SENIOR PRACTICE, NOR CAN SENIORS ATTEND JUNIOR PRACTICES.
Coaches can advance a Junior swimmer to the Senior Team during the course of the season if the Junior swimmer is meeting the Senior criteria. Senior swimmers can also be moved back to the Junior team if not demonstrating the endurance, ability, or committment to the senior practices.
