The swim season runs from mid-June- the last weekend in July. In general, swimmers hoping to participate in the swim team should be able to swim four laps of the pool without stopping. Swimmers also should have some knowledge of the four competitive strokes: freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke, and butterfly.
At the beginning of the season the coaches will hold evaluations to determine if a swimmer is ready to join the competitive team. Morning practices are held daily. The Camp practice is from 7:30-8:45am and is for any swimmer participating in Flourtown Summer Day Camp (or in another day camp). We end practice just in time for swimmers to get to camp at Flourtown. We have another practice from 8:45-10am and this practice is for any non-camper.
There are also two night practices per week. Those evenings will be determined in early May, as the pool’s master schedule gets finalized. We strongly encourage participation in the morning practices. We have the whole pool to ourselves, which lends to a much better practice environment.
