*Two thirds of our team (excluding Minis) are under the age of 12. In an effort to balance the size of practices we are giving 9-10s the opportunity to choose which practice is right for them. If your athlete has more experience, perhaps has been swimming year-round, and may be able to hold their own in a lane with 11-12s, please consider having them come to the later of the two practice sessions. If your 9-10 is newer to swimming or you otherwise assess they are not ready to swim up and are best served by swimming with other 8-10yr olds, we encourage you to bring them to the earlier practice. They will all receive the same excellent coaching - our goal is simply to try and alleviate over-crowding in the lanes during these two practices. Please make an honest assessment of which practice is better for your child. If you are unsure, please consult with the team reps or coaches.
