News and Announcements
2020 registration is ready to go. But like the rest of the country, we are in limbo regarding the status of the season. We are in contact with the Town and the league to get information to you as soon as we can regarding the season and its status
In the meantime, we are suspending registration until we have more information regarding the season. Do feel free to ask questions over email if you have them, and we will answer them as well as we can. And know that we will get information to you as soon as we have it. Email questions to Kevin Trent at email@example.com
Also… check out a few changes in our program…
This year, we will move the 9 year olds to the 5:15 practice until school ends, and the 9:00 practice when the school year ends. See below for full practice schedules.
We will be back in Division II this year. Five of our six meets will be against Hanover County teams. Check out the meet scheduled under the MEET INFORMATION LINK.
The meet season will begin one week later this year, so there will be no meets prior to the conclusion of the school year. The Championship Meet will be August 1-2.
We also welcome Ethan Spencer to our coaching staff for 2020. Ethan is a graduate of our program and swims for DePauw University in Indiana. He will be working with our 12/under swimmers.
Hoping everyone has a great 2019-2020 school year, and looking forward to seeing you in 2020. A few notes about the season…
- The meet schedule has been posted under MEET INFORMATION. Note that we will be returning to Division II this summer.
- New time standards for 2020 have been posted under DOCUMENTS
- We will be moving the 9 year olds to practice with the 10-12 year olds. This will reunite the 9/10 age group into a single practice and allow more space for our growing 8/under age group.
- The championship meet will be the weekend of August 1-2, 2020.
