Please try commit to a weekly schedule (as much as work/family/life allows) - such as MWF at 6:20am, MTTh at 6:00am, TTh at 7:20am, MThF at 5:30am, etc.  This helps us identify which days, times, and lanes have room for others to join.


According to swimming ability, each lane works together to complete the scheduled practice (see samples on this page).  The deck coach encourages, directs and critiques throughout the practice.  The average pace times below are intervals/send-offs, not actual swimming paces.
