We are thrilled to welcome you to the Sun Valley Sharks Swim Team. Practice begins this week and runs through August 5. Each swimmer has been assigned two practices per week, based on the groups shared previously. If children are ill, please keep them home!
Bring a water bottle, goggles, & towel to the first practice
We will be giving each swimmer a cap and kickboard at the first practice
Each subsequent practice swimmers should bring a bag with all equipment (cap, kickboard, goggles, towel, water bottle) and bring everything home at the end of practice
We cannot store equipment at the pool
Please do your best to arrive on time
We would like to reiterate that this summer's swim team program is for children who can solidly swim at least 1 length of the pool (25 yards) in a safe manner. The kiddie pool will not be used for swim team practice this year (lessons are being held there). Keep in mind children will be swimming 25s many times over during the 45 minute practice. If there are any safety concerns with swimming abilities the coaches will discuss with parents and we will move children to swim lessons as appropriate to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience. During Tuesday & Thursday morning practices we will be using all six lanes of the pool:
Swimmers ages 6-8 will be in Lanes 1 & 2 and coached by Michael
Swimmers ages 8 - 11 will be in Lanes 3 & 4 and coached by Cat
Swimmers ages 11 - 16 will be in Lanes 5 & 6 and coached by Kristen
During Wednesday afternoon practices we will be using three lanes of the pool
Swimmers ages 6-8 will be in Lane 1 and coached by Michael
Swimmers age 9 - 16 will be in Lanes 2 & 3 and coached by Kristen
Note: on our two Wednesday MEET DAYS (7/14 & 8/4) there will be no Wednesday afternoon practice.At all practices there will be a strict limit of 6 per lane and we will do our best to adhere to 6 ft distance between swimmers.
