Venetian eSplash – 2019 swim team practice schedule
| 2019 Swim Team Practice Schedule:
The following are the revised practice times for the 2019 Venetian Poolsharks. These hours were discussed in depth at our last board meeting on Monday, March 11th, with the emphasis being on sharing the access to the pool with the entire Venetian community.
Poolsharks swim practice will start the second week of May and run until the end of June. There will be only afternoon practices in May and in June the main practice will be in the morning, with an additional abbreviated practice during the afternoon 3 days a week.
Please see details below:
Practices will begin Monday May 6th and end Wednesday May 29th. Practice will be held Monday through Thursday from 4:15 to 6:45 p.m. with 8 short course lanes (set up starts at 4 for practice and starts at 6:45 for lap swim at 7:00). There are NO morning Poolsharks practices in May.
During the afternoon Poolsharks practices, the swim team will use 7 short course lanes and will reserve one short course lane for lap swimmers use. Lap swimmers will have use of long course lanes Monday through Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m. Lap swimmers will have use of the long course lanes on Friday, Saturday and Sunday during their normal times.
Poolsharks practices will be held Monday through Friday beginning, June 3rd through June 29th from 8:15- 11:30 a.m. During these times the short course lanes will be in use. In order to accommodate swim team members who are not able to attend morning practices, we will offer an abbreviated practice on Monday, Wednesday and Friday during the first three weeks of June from 5:45-6:45p.m. This afternoon practice will be held in 1 long course lane, with the other two lanes reserved for lap swimmers.
Lap swimmers will have morning swim from 6 to 8 a.m. Monday through Friday, 11:45 a.m. to closing Monday- Friday, and the added morning lap swim on Saturdays and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. in addition to lap swimming during normal swim hours Friday- Sunday.
The home meet schedule has not yet been finalized, but we anticipate having 3 home meets on Tuesday afternoons/evenings. As soon as we are assigned the dates for the meets, they will be posted.
There will be other events, such as a one hour clinic from 8 to 9 a.m. for interested swim team members on Saturday, June 8th with Coach Stephanie Williams Moreno, the current coach at UGA and a US National team member. This will delay lap swimming one hour that morning.
We are looking forward to this swim season!
