Practice Policies

The following are some reminders for you and your swimmer to help make the first day(s) a success!

Practice Policies for Swimmers

  • Arrive on time with needed equipment
  • Be ready to listen and learn. The Pool and surrounding area is our classroom – We’re here to LEARN and have Fun!
  • Come to practice with a goal in mind. Something that you want to improve on. Focus on this goal often.
  • When the coaches are giving instruction:
    • Face the coach and stop talking
    • Keep head above water and a hand on the wall
  • Walk on the deck
  • If waiting for your practice, socialize/play away from the pool, behind the ramadas. No ball over the volleyball net
  • No diving in the shallow end
  • No Horseplay: Keep your hands to yourself
  • 8-U: After each length, climb out, line up and wait for instructions

Practice Policies for Parents

The pool is our instructional area. Please help us with a few items to insure a safe and productive environment:

  • The gate should remain locked. A key card will be attached to the gate which can be swiped to allow entry.
  • No one is allowed in the Baby Pool during practice hours.
  • The only swimmers allowed in the water are the current training group.
  • Swimmers that are 12 and Under need parent supervision at the pool. Please do not drop your swimmer to run errands without designating another responsible adult to watch your child.
  • The Coaches’ primary concern is the group that is in the water. Please help to monitor the behavior of swimmers that are in the pool area.
  • Swimmers and parents are encouraged to watch practice, but must stay off the pool deck and away from the water.
  • During practice, please keep interactions with the coaches brief. If you need to speak with the coaches for an extended period; call, email or text the coach.

Try Outs

We use age-grouping as a “starting point” for placing each swimmer in an appropriate training group. But, the first two days of practice (Try-Outs) will help us evaluate your swimmer’s current abilities to determine appropriate placement. The vast majority of swimmers will remain in their age group. If a move is needed, the parent will be contacted ASAP to inform them of the decision.
