Be sure to dress appropriately (snug fitting clothes), sunblock and bring a full yet refillable water bottle as you will need it! Review the weather forecast. 


NOTE: All participants must pass a swim test to be eligible for practices. 

Swim test dates will be determined as we get closer to the Fall Season start date. 

(Please be advised: The swim test has two basic parts; Part One is where the athletes will swim one length of the pool without touching the sides or bottom of the pool. Part Two is where the athlete will tread water for 8 minutes and then one additional minute with a life jacket.)
