This year’s swim team will be divided into recreational and competitive swimmers.
The competitive program is for swimmers who intend to travel and compete in swim meets, with an overall goal of competing in championships at the end of the season. The recreational program is designed for swimmers who are seeking exercise and wish to improve their strokes, but do not intend to compete in swim meets. Practice placement is ultimately up to the coach’s discretion.
