Time Trials and Fun Meet
Time Trials will be held on Saturday mornings promptly at 8:30 am on June 4 June 11, June 19, and June 25. Time trials are critically important for the coaches, so they can plan relays and event entries, so swimmers should come as often as possible. The "Fun Meet" will be held Saturday, May 28 at 8:30am. Fun Meet is an intra-team meet with "unique" events that reintroduces, the swimmers to the flow of a meet. A team picture will be taken at one of the time trials or practices, we will announce when scheduled.
