Practices are structured according to age group. During the first two weeks, the groupings are larger as the pool time is restricted. Swimmers are grouped into 6 & Under, 7-10, and 11 & up (subject to change based on registration numbers). Your swimmer will practice with their age group UNLESS INSTRUCTED TO DO OTHERWISE BY THE COACHES.
Coaches will hand out plain white swim caps, and you will be asked to write your swimmer's name on each side of the cap. They must wear these white caps during practice (girls and boys) to help the coaches with instruction (it is difficult to identify kids when they're wearing googles and looking at the bottom of the pool)! A pair of goggles is also essential for the first day of practice (we do also recommend a spare pair for emergencies).
After the first week, practices will include the use of swim fins. These are sized according to shoe size and can be purchased from a swim store such as SwimFreak.
Once public school ends for the summer break, the swim practice schedule shifts to the morning. The age groups are 6 & Under, 7-8, 9-10, and 11 & up. UNLESS INSTRUCTED BY THE COACHES, YOUR CHILD SHOULD ATTEND THE PRACTICE TIMES THAT CORRESPOND TO THEIR AGE. At this time, practice groups will be restructured by age and ability. The groups will become smaller, providing increased opportunity for instruction and focus on technique.
