We practice Monday through Friday, rain or shine -- the only exception is if there are thunderstorms in the area. Swimmers are expected to practice all five days, but at a minimum of three days a week. Practice times are tentative and may change based on the needs of the team. Remember to check your e-mails frequently during swim season for any updates to the swim practice schedule.
The 9-12 year old practices are usually at least 2000 yards, while the 13-and-up practices are usually at least 3000 yards. Please have your swimmer attend the correct practice according to his/her age. The coaches will let you know if your swimmer would benefit from a different practice. New families should be open to different practice times. Often new swimmers may be asked to go to a different practice to work on their strokes.

* As most of our high school aged swimmers will not be joining team practice until mid May, the 13 & Up practice is combined with the 11-12 yr old practice. Once the high school swimmers return, we will adjust practice schedule. Check emails for adjustments to the schedule once we see how practice is proceeding.
Please remember that we are guests of the Mission Valley Swim Club. We are obligated to follow all club rules. If you use a chair, table, or lounge, please remember to put it back and help keep the grounds clean.
