Swimmers are expected to attend a MINIMUM of three practices a week. It is the least amount of weekly practice a swimmer can attend to expect improvement.
Swimmers are assigned a practice time by the coaching staff based on age and ability. The timeslot assigned to each swimmer based on which group will benefit him or her the most and swimmers cannot swim during a different practice time other than the one assigned. Swimmers may have their group changed by the coaching staff at their discretion based on improvement throughout the year.
