The team practices Monday-Thursday mornings, 5:45-6:45 a.m. Mondays and Wednesdays are dry-land mornings; Tuesdays and Thursdays are swimming mornings. All JV members have choice of coming to morning practices.
There is also daily afternoon practice, 4:00-6:00 p.m. and Saturday practice, 8:00-11:00 a.m. for Varsity and JV swimmers.
During school breaks and various holidays, the practice schedule is modified. When practice is scheduled, it will be from 8:00-11:00 a.m. for Varsity and JV swimmers. Participation is expected. The holiday practice schedule will be posted when it is final for the 2016-17 season.
When school is cancelled due to winter weather, the DMPS district provides guidance on if practice can be held. Frequently, it is allowed after 12:00PM for Varsity members only. However, each school cancellation and weather incident is taken on a case-by-case basis. We will communicate with the team as soon as coaching staff knows what is allowed. Also – we will post an update to Facebook and Twitter.
