Practice frequency is important to a swimmer’s progress. Practices better swimming skills and promote team spirit. Swimming requires repetition, attention to detail, and a desire to succeed and learn. Swimmers are encouraged to attend at least 3 practices per week. Swimmers can attend morning and/or evening practices to maximize schedule flexibility. Our goal is to provide feedback to every swimmer. During the morning practices we will be able to have more lanes available for practice.
Please send your swimmer to the age appropriate practice unless prearranged and put in writing with the Head Coach.
