Time Trials: Saturday, June 15th 8:30am warm ups / 9:00am start. Every swimmer who wants to compete in the meets should swim every stroke to get a starting time for the season. It is a good way to judge progress over the course of the summer, and it helps the coaches determine a line-up for the swim meets. Swimmers do not have to participate in time trials if they do not want to swim in the meets or want to swim in the “B” meets only.

Swim & Dive Team Parents Meeting: Will be immediately after time trials on June 15. Please save the date to talk to the coaching staff, meet other parents, sign up for volunteer opportunities and get information on the season.
