PRACTICE SCHEDULE & POOL LOCATIONS

Practices focus on training techniques, stroke mechanics and endurance. Completed distances range from 2500 to 3500 yards, depending on a swimmer's skill level. The lanes are divided into several skill levels so that you swim with others of like ability. New swimmers are encouraged to take plenty of rest. As with any sport, endurance and strength will increase with practice. Below are the workout times and please note the pool for each practice. Our coaches attend and run every practice.

How Often to Practice

While all practices are optional, we encourage members to practice with us as often as they can.

Swimming 2-3 practices a week is a good target to help get you in swimming shape and keep you there.
