Thursday, January 2- Saturday, May 16, 2020
PRACTICE TIMES AT CIVIC CENTER:
*Elite and tidal wave groups will practice 2 hours.
*Younger swimmers or those needing more stroke development will practice for one hour.
*Swimmers needing stroke development may be asked to swim from 7-8:00 pm due to pool space.
*Swimmers may not enter the pool prior to the start of practice.
*Swimmers will sign in at the front desk prior to the start of practice (as required by the Civic Center).
*Weather and holiday cancellations will be posted on the Facebook page to the best of our abilities.
We welcome swimmers from age 7 and up who have a basic skill level of swimming. General guidelines include:
– Being able to swim 50 meters without stopping
– Freestyle and backstroke competency. Face in the water, side breathing and alternating arms in freestyle. A legal breaststroke is recommended, but not mandatory. Butterfly instruction will be provided.
– Coaches may suggest swim lessons for swimmers that are not ready for the competitive team.
– Coaches will decide training groups/lanes based on ability and swimming level. Test sets, times, technique/skill level and endurance factor into the elite and tidal wave groups. Age does not strictly determine your training group.
We plan to compete in some USA swim meets again. Parents are responsible for travel arrangements and cost. This MAY CHANGE as meets are posted on the USA swimming sites. Swimmers are welcome to swim in all or none of the meets. No pressure.
$200 per swimmer plus a USA swimming fee.
*There are two USA swimming membership types available: 1) $20 Flex membership – allows swimmers to attend up to two USA meets per year; 2) $68 Annual membership – unlimited USA meets per year. Summer league and high school meets do not count in this total.
*There will be additional meet fees that will be paid by the swimmer. Fees depend on number of events.
*Unfortunately, at this time, there will be no family discounts due to cost of renting the pool and limited pool space.
