Practice Schedule for the week of the 29th:
Entries for Zone 1 South Championships are now open. This is a team championship meet, so we would love to have everyone eligible to participate and sign up. In order to be eligible, you need to have one swim in the swims database (meaning that you have participated in a year round meet this season). This year, we are in Division 2 and we are swimming on Sunday, January 18th. Swimmers need to enter the maximum events (which is 4) and we will also enter relays in all eligible age groups. The coaches will go over entries this week and we would like for everyone to be entered before we go on our holiday break.
This year’s holiday break for the team will take place during the week of December 22nd. *Seniors will practice on December 22/23/24 and then take the rest of the week off. All other groups will be off that entire week.
