Summer Afternoon Practice


This option exists on M, T, and TH for working parents unable to get their kids to morning weekday practices, and for kids attending day camps, as space allows. This is not usually an option for 5-6 year olds and not available for Hatchlings. We will attempt to accommodate all that need evenings due to schedule (we have a max of 4 lanes available).  A mix of morning and evening practices is best, whenever possible. Coach approval needed to attend these alternate practices for full summer. If your swimmer needs evening practices for a week, an email is appreciated (

Summer Saturday Practice (Starts June 15th)



These will focus on specific skills, like starts and turns, or similar.  Saturday practices are great if your swimmer missed practices during the week or simply likes the routine of daily swimming!
