Practice Policies

Children swim during the practice time assigned for their age group. If your swimmer is 9 and under or has not passed the life guard swim test with the punch on their pool pass, you must be present at practice. You are welcome to watch your swimmer’s practice; however, we ask that you stay back from the pool perimeter for the duration of the session. It is a distraction for the coaches as well as the swimmers and will take away from instruction. If you have any questions for the coaches, please do not ask them during practice time.

Practice is an important part of your swimmer’s success. In order to get the most out of each session, we ask that swimmers arrive on time and prepared to swim. Swimmers should bring sunscreen, caps, goggles, fins (Junior Wave does not need fins) and towels

While at practice, we expect swimmers to listen to their coaches and follow their directions. Swimmers are asked not to talk during instruction and to respect their teammates’ personal space (i.e. no hitting kick boards and no excessive splashing). If there is a problem, the coaches will take the necessary steps for discipline to ensure everyone is having a safe and fun experience.

INCLEMENT WEATHER

In the event of inclement weather, a decision will be made about what to do about specific practices in order to maintain safety.  Light rain is not a problem, but heavy rain interferes with visibility and lightening/thunder obviously do not mix with water.  Swimmers must evacuate the pool immediately. The pool closes for 30 minutes after each rumble of thunder or sighting of lightening.

On occasion, we have had to shorten practice or move to dry land practice due to body substances in the water (vomit, feces).
