PRACTICE SCHEDULE

Participants may choose how often they come to practice and which practices they attend. This program is designed to provide opportunities to participants with busy schedules. During each practice, coaches will lead a structured workout which incorporates various drills and stroke techniques to improve time, form, and confidence.

Practice is open to all Student Rec Center members. Drop-ins are welcome and a guest pass is available for $10.00 at the front desk of the SRC. Participants must be able to swim 100 yards and have basic knowledge of swimming. Bring a cap, goggles and water to every practice! To get the most out of your workouts we recommend purchasing fins, pull buoy and paddles.
