Swim Team Practice Schedule

Swim Team Packet
Our Swim Team Packet will be ready the first week of June after the annual Stateline Swim League meeting.  Please be on the lookout for an email announcing our packet and swim meet schedule is ready!

Practice Schedule 2019
Age-group practices start on Monday June 24th, with parents encouraged to join their swimmers at their practice for a Meet and Greet with the coaches.

Please have your child at the pool 5-10 minutes prior to the start of practice, so that they can change and be ready to get in the pool when their practice time begins. This will help ensure that the kids maximize their time in the pool.  Swimmers that are registered for camp will be escorted to and from the pool deck by their camp counselors.

8 and Under Age Group- Practice Time: 8:00am-8:45am
