During season, the middle school team has several different practice schedules. The elite MS team practices Mon/Wed/Fri/Sat, and the advanced/intermediate/novice MS swimmers practice either M/W/F/Sat or T/TH/Sat.
Refer to your registered practices to get your son’s exact days and times. Forgot? Simply view the class roster located on the club swimming website under Practice Schedules. On that same page, we post the daily practice schedule at the beginning of each month. It has the exact days of practices, since sometimes there are conflicting events.
Though the team doesn’t practice all together, they swim together as one team for all meets. The Rails middle school team includes all current 7th and 8th grade boys from Norwalk, Carlisle and the Southside of Des Moines. These young men are the future Rails swimmers!
Please check the team roster to be sure your name and grade is correct.

Winter Weather Policy
In the event of winter weather, practice and/or meets will be canceled. Rails Swimming will post something on the website, send an email, post on Facebook, ect if this were to occur. We typically use the guidelines set by the Des Moines Public School District. For example: if DMPS cancels school or evening activities, we will not host practice.
