2014 Practice

posted Apr 4, 2014, 12:45 PM by Wellington SwimTeam

Practice is held every morning, Monday through Friday weekly.  There will be two practice groups - 7:45 a.m. and 9:00 a.m.  The coach will assign  which practice you need to attend.

The first day of practice is May 22nd, Thursday, everyone come at 7:30 and the coach will assess the time you will need to come each day.
Swim Meets are on Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m.  Not participating in the meets is like practicing daily for a baseball game and then choosing not to play the game.  The team needs all of our swimmers, regardless of their swimming ability!  Please notify your coaches IN WRITING if you cannot attend a meet for any reason! This is VERY important for our relay lineup! The coach will assign which events you will swim at a meet. Input by the swimmer i welcomed, but the coach has the final decision.
If your swimmer is new, they can participate in the meets when they feel comfortable with competing.  It is not required, but is highly recommended.  

RAIN DAYS:  Practice is ALWAYS in session!  If it is raining or if you arrive at the pool and no one is there for whatever reason - go to the Armory, which is 2 blocks south of the pool.  Dry land sessions will replace the water drills.  Dry land practice is just as important as water drills.  Just come at your regularly scheduled practice time.  
When in doubt, please contact a board member or the coach for accurate information.
