Winter Break Schedule

Image
The best part of school breaks is the opportunity to swim a little more and get a little faster! Swim teams everywhere look forward to school breaks.  Please work with your teammates to help get to as many practices as possible.  This is also an opportunity for you to drop off your swimmer and run errands child free! :)

Below is a draft of the schedule - it has yet to be approved and could change.  Please check back early next week for the final schedule.  We will also change our google calendars once everything is approved.
