    Dryland Training: takes place on deck (dry land). The goal is to use strength and conditioning exercises to increase power, mobility, and flexibility. For swimmers, this means the ultimate goal is to become more explosive in the water, increase speed and stroke rate, and improve distance per stroke.

    Times may change due to COVID-19 requirements and/or number of swimmers in each age group.
