Things You Should Know
For the Swimmer
- Swimmers must be at least 6 years of age to participate but no older than 18 years of age.
- Your swimmer must be able to swim at least one length of the pool unassisted.
- Daily practices are recommended. Historically, practices begin in early June, practices will run Monday through Friday from 10 to 11 a.m. (During the week of swimming lessons, they will be one hour earlier.) Practices consist of stroke work (all strokes), laps, dive-ins, and on some days, fun games! Remember: the more you practice, the faster you will swim, and the better swimmer you will be! Final details for the practice schedule will be finalized closer to the 2016 season.
- Meets are usually scheduled on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m. and last about an hour.
- It’s important to participate in all home and away meets. However, if you aren’t available to participate in a meet, please let the coach know right away as it will affect the final lineup.
- Elmhurst participates in the South Hills Swim Club. Participating pools include: Bower Hill Swim Club, Cloverleaf YMCA, Hunting Ridge Swim Club, Woodland Hills Swim Club, and Hunting Ridge.
- We also participate in the Relay Invitational, Odd Age meet, 10 & Unders, and Champs.
