PLEASE NOTE - Practice schedules are still very much TBD and subject to change depending on our plans and protocols this year.  Keep checking for updates.

Practice Schedule Notes for 2021 (updated 3/21):

  • At this time, we anticipate practices being offered in May: M/T/Th 3:45pm-9:00pm, W 2:00pm-9:00pm, and Sat/Sun 8:00am-5:00pm.  Exact time slots will be determined later, depending on registration numbers and other factors.  The June schedule has not yet been determined, as we are still awaiting a decision from the city on potential pool re-opening.  If the pool remains closed during our swim season, expect the June practice schedule to look similar to last year (all day long!).  If the pool does open, practices will likely be a modified version of our normal season schedule, with practices offered: M-F 8:00am-11:45am, M/W/Th 5:15pm-9:00pm, and Sat/Sun 8:00am-11:45am.

  • We will use a Sign-Up Genius to sign up for practice slots, and swimmers will be limited in the number of practices they may attend each week. With practices of only 18-24 swimmers at a time, we will need to offer multiple practice sessions whenever we can, and not everyone will be able to come in the evenings or during their preferred time, with friends, back-to-back with a sibling's practice time, etc. You will need to be flexible about when you attend (hopefully this will be easier with so many parents still working from home and many camps and other summer programs modified). 

-Swimmers may attend 2-3 practices per week (MUST sign up via SignUp Genius - link will be posted TBD).

-15-18 year old swimmers must attend practices to participate in meets (coaching staff exempt).

-There are no practices the evenings of swim meets.

-Regular morning practices will begin Thursday, May 27.

-Please note that practice schedules are subject to change throughout the season.

IMPORTANT - Due to COVID restrictions, parents are not allowed on the pool deck or inside the pool facility at any time.

All swimmers must practice with their assigned age group.  We cannot honor requests to swim with siblings or friends.  Swimmers may not attend a different practice session for the parent's convenience, and advanced swimmers may not "swim up".  Please be sure your swimmer is able to attend with his/her age group before registering.


May 1 - 27 (tentative)
