    Please arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled start time for temperature, sick interview and attendance before practice/dryland starts.   Please bear with us as we will be staggering entrance and exits of swimmers while maintaining social distancing.  IF YOU ARRIVE LATE, YOU WILL HAVE TO WAIT AS NEEDED WHILE WE RELEASE EXITING SWIMMERS. 

    Swimmers must swim with their age group, no exceptions.

    Morning Swim Practice:

    • 7:00 – 7:30am Age 9-10 plus dryland
    • 7:30 – 8:00am Age 7-8
    • 8:00 – 8:30am Age 4-6
    • 8:30 – 9:15am Age 13-18 plus dryland
    • 9:15 - 10:00am Age 11-12 plus dryland

    Morning Dryland Training (ages 9-18):

    • 9:00 - 9:15am Age 11-12
    • 9:15 - 9:30am Age 13-18

    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.
