1. At practice we ask that you respect the coaches and let them coach your child without interference. If you need to speak to a coach, please do so before or after practice. You can also speak to the Swim Rep at any time.
2. Please be on time so that your swimmer will receive the full benefit of the practice.
3. The water will most likely be cold the first week of practice. It’s a good idea to bring and extra towel and something warm to change into after practice.
