Swim Team Practice
Afternoons until public schools close
Practice will begin on Tuesday, June 1st.
While public schools are still in session, practice times will be weekday afternoons.
We understand that your swimmers’ schedules are very busy during this time of year and that school dismissal times vary. We simply ask that you please bring your swimmer to practice as often as you can. The coaches will understand if your child arrives late or needs to leave early.
For those swimmers new to the team, there will be a 1-week trial period to ensure that your swimmer is able to swim one length of the pool unassisted. This means they may not stop to rest on the wall or lane line.
No Swim Practice on Thursday, June 17th
Last Day of School Party at the pool instead!
Summer Practice Schedule
Starting Friday, June 18th
Monday - Friday
SIGN-IN Sheet Every Practice
We ask that team members please sign-in when they arrive at practice. Sign-in sheets will be at the Pool entrance table. Team members will not be penalized for missing practice, rather the list is helpful for coaches to know exactly who is in attendance to ensure the safety of our swimmers and divers. Please remind your child to only sign themselves in and not their friends.
PRE-TEAM Pre-team is for swimmers with a basic stroke, but need to improve technique and master all four swim strokes while working on building strength and stamina needed to swim the length of the pool. Swimmers may move from pre-team to team at anytime in the season that they are ready as determined by the parent and head coach. Swim team fees shall be pro-rated.

The LSA swim meet calendar with location and opponents is posted on the team calendar after May 31st. You can also find more details about the entire league schedule at www.pasda.org.

Parent Volunteer Jobs:
Visit the sign up portal on SignUp Genius - click button below.
Work bond - beginning 2021, all swim families will pay a $50 swim meet work duty bond. Parents who fulfill their obligation of working 3 swim meets (or 3 swim team work shifts) shall receive a bond refund at the end of the season.
All swim families must sign-up to work 3 swim meets.
If you cannot work yourself, it is your responsibility to find a replacement. Some families pay a sitter or neighbor to complete the assignments. Other families cover for one another in exchange for watching younger siblings during the meets. The important thing is that you make these arrangements ahead of time. Most jobs are simple and can be performed by high school students (we do ask that timers, time recorders, score table and place judges be at least 16 years of age).
