Spring 2018 Tentative Schedule

The expected schedule for the Spring 2018 season appears below, and can also be found in calendar form on the main website page at the bottom.  PLEASE REMEMBER that schedules will be Group-specific, so your family's exact schedule will ultimately depend on the Group to which your children are assigned.  We will provide Group assignments as soon as we are able to complete the process once Registration closes.

Meets will alternate between mornings and afternoons for BOTH groups.  We have tried to be as equitable as possible with a 7-week Meet schedule by holding the final "Family Fun" Meets both in the afternoon.  As those events typically run a bit shorter than a regular Meet time-wise, this should be possible.  We know that morning Meets are not ideal for many people; unfortunately, that is all we are able to offer this season because of facility availability.  In future seasons, we expect to be able to offer all afternoon Meets for both Groups by using two facilities simultaneously.  We ask that you PLEASE attend ONLY the events for your Group assignment so that we can accommodate everyone in the timeframe available!

Practice times will be the same for the age groups as in previous seasons, and the same between Groups, but the locations will be different for each group, and will alternate to give everyone equal time at each facility.  Again, PLEASE attend ONLY the practice sessions for your Group assignment.  One of the key reasons we have divided this season is because practice sessions were getting unwieldy for the coaches, so we ask that you please help us keep this season sane by attending only your assigned events.

PRACTICES

Like Meets, practices are divided by age.  For both Groups, the times/ages will be as follows:

  5:00 pm 6:00 pm
Tuesdays 5-8-year-olds 9-14-year-olds
Wednesdays 9-14-year-olds 5-8-year-olds
Thursdays 5-8-year-olds 9-14-year-olds

 

The Groups will alternate between our two practice locations, on the following schedule.  Unfortunately, it will not be exactly equal as we have a 7-week season, but what Churchill lacks in size, it makes up for in accessibility in rush hour, so we believe it's still fairly equitable!

UPDATE, 2/15/18:  We have been made aware that Cooper will be unavailable to use on Thursday, April 12th due to a school event, so as of right now, the RED Group will *not* practice on that day.  Please understand that alternate facilities are simply not available with all the sports the County has to schedule each and every day, and that Churchill is not really a large enough facility for us to reasonably combine practices.  We will work on options for the RED Group, but it's entirely possible that we simply will have to miss that one practice.  It's also entirely possible another closure will at some point occur and affect the BLUE Group, so we just have to be patient and work with what's available to us.  We thank you for your understanding!
