Swimming Practice Schedule:
Practices are held Monday through Friday and will begin on Monday, June 10 and continue through the last week of July. Swimmers are grouped and practice approximately according to age. Coaches can and do make adjustments in terms of what swimmers swim in which practice based upon skills, and competitive swimming experience. It is not unusual for an “8 & Under” to practice with the older group of swimmers with the coach’s approval.

|9:00 - 9:45 a.m.||Swimmers 10 years of age and younger|
**SPECIAL NOTE: Swim Team members in the 13-15 Age-Group are invited to attend a 7:00 - 8:00 a.m. Special Practice designated for this age-group. There are several advantages to attending this workout:
•Small numbers in each workout lane.
•Workouts specificaly suited to your age and skills.
•A chance to experience beautiful and quiet mornings.
Children interested in the Diving Program will meet on Monday, June 10th at 10:00 a.m. An exact practice schedule will be developed at that time. Normally, practices will be scheduled between 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.

SPECIAL SWIM TEAM LESSONS - THE BASIC SKILLS
Especially Designed and Intended For:
•SWIMMERS NEW TO THE SPTC SWIMMING TEAM
•"NEW" Swimmers and Those In The 9:00 Workout Group
This summer we are providing a special session for all swimmers new to the SPTC swim team and/or those who are swimming with the 9:00 workout group. These sessions will be held from 9:00 - 10:00 each Friday morning for the first four weeks of the season beginning June 14. Each session is 1-hour long and we will provide specific instruction on the skills that we consider to be basic for competitive swimming success in our program. Skills covered include starts and turns for all the competitive strokes including the crawl and backstroke tumble turn, as well as the racing dive. Specific competitive stroke instruction is available with the "Swimmers Group" in our Swim School Program. Swimmers new to our program are encourage to take part in both of these opporunities.
We are asking for pre-registration for these sessions and that
participants commit to all four classes.
Cost for the four sessions is $40.00.
