PRACTICE
Practice groups are based upon age and swimmers will be assigned a lane at the discretion of the coaches. This is done to provide a safer swimming environment for all and to maximize training. There is a pre-season schedule while school is in session and another schedule when the school year concludes. If your school is still in session, concessions will be made for practice. In any event, be sure to note both schedules list on this website.

PRACTICE IS MANDATORY
Unless you’ve received prior approval from your coaches, practice is mandatory. If no prior arrangements are made, practice is also mandatory the day of the meet in order to compete. If you are swimming with other USS or club teams, you must attend a minimum of three practices per week to participate in meets and Champs. Please have your swimmer verbally inform their coach of missed practices. Attendance will be taken. Excused practice includes vacation, camps, previous sports commitments, etc. Be aware that you may not swim in events if you’ve missed practice that week.

SOME RULES
We ask that swimmers follow all the posted rules of the pool and please, no parents on the pool deck during practice. If you decide to purchase a team suit (see Equipment), please do not wear the suit during practice, if possible.

DRY LAND
Practice will begin with approximately 15 mins. of dry land training each day. Dry land can include yoga, jogging, strength training, etc. Be sure your swimmer brings sneakers.

ARRIVAL/DEPARTURE
As a parent, you do not need to remain in the pool area during practice, but coaches ask that your swimmers arrive 10 minutes prior to practice and collect swimmers promptly at the end of practice. If you have a younger swimmer, please walk your swimmer to and from practice for safety. All swimmers must be out of the pool area by 12 noon each day.
