Swim Practice

As long as the pool is open, we practice rain or shine. Swimmers are expected to arrive at the pool 10-15 minutes before practice begins and be ready to get into the water at their scheduled time.

The pool management will send swimmers home that arrive more than 15 minutes early, as it cannot be responsible for the child’s supervision.

Only coaches and those swimmers whose practice time it is will be allowed on deck during the hours of swim practice. Please no parents on the pool deck; there will be time after practice to talk to the coaches. Any questions, contact Clare Bradshaw.


Please note: Swimmers must attend the practice session for their age group. Coaches may move swimmers to a different practice to better match capabilities. Please, no parents on the deck during practice. The coaches need to focus on the swimmers. If you have questions, please wait for the coaches after practice.

***A parent or guardian MUST REMAIN on pool grounds for 8 & Under practices and Little Feet practices
