Unfortunately, the 2020 season was canceled due to COVID-19 and the delayed construction of the new Truxtun Park Pool.
When the season is in session, practices are held Monday through Thursday and start in late May. Fridays are reserved for optional practice clinics as announced by the coaches.
When the season is in session, all Saturday Meets begin at 8:30 a.m. with Warm-Ups starting at 7:30 a.m.
The Championship meets are driven by time standards (we won’t know which meet your child qualifies for until after the first several meets.) Entry paperwork for championship meets is passed out two weeks prior these meets. It is the responsibility of parents to turn the paperwork in on time for children to be able to swim in their championship meet.
