2016 Practice Schedule

This  is  our  new  practice  schedule  for  the  2016  season.  We  realize  that  the  structure  is  different  and  will  be  an  adjustment.  Please  know  that  there  is  some  flexibility  in  the  schedule  if  the  practice  time  does  not  work  for  your  swimmer.  If  you  see  a  conflict  with  your  allotted  time,  please  contact  Coach  Jenn  immediately  via  email  CoachJenn@edhtaz.org  to  make  further  arrangements.    

When  creating  this  schedule  Coach  Jenn  had  a  few  goals  in  mind.    

1. Eliminating  or  reducing  over  crowded  lanes  

2. Increase  the  technical  skills  at  each  practice    

3. Reducing  the  time  on  the  wall  (the  amount  of  time  that  the  swimmer  sits  and  waits  for  instruction)    

A  few  notes  on  the  changes  in  the  practice  schedule:  

Dry  Land

Every  age  group  will  participate  in  15  minutes  of  dry  land  exercises  at  the  beginning  of  their  practice.  The  purpose  of  dry  land  exercises  is;  get  the  body  warmed  up  before  the  swimmers  get  in  the  water,  strengthen  muscles  used  during  swimming  including  the  core  muscles  and  work  on  technical  skills  on  deck  using  training  tools.  This  is  also  a  time  where  the  coaches  will  be  communicating  the  focus  of  practice  for  the  day.  Dry  Land  is  not  an  optional  time;  it  is  part  of  practice  Monday-­‐  Thursday.    Please  have  your  swimmer  come  with  their  swimsuit  under  their  clothes  for  dry  land;  they  will  also  need  to  be  wearing  tennis  shoes!    

FINS 

Please  have  your  swimmer  bring  Fins  to  every  practice  Monday-­‐  Thursday.  We  will  be  utilizing  them  throughout  the  season.    

Spring  Schedule

The  Spring  Schedule  will  begin  on  April  25th  and  continue  through  June  3rd.  This  practice  schedule  includes  15  minutes  of  dry  land  time  and  each  swimmer  will  be  practicing  with  their  age  group.    

Summer  Schedule­  

The  Summer  Schedule  starts  on  June  6th-­‐  July  22nd.    All  practices  will  continue  with  the  15  minutes  of  dry  land  at  the  beginning  of  practice,  with  an  exception  to  the  11/12  age  groups,  they  will  do  their  dry  land  at  the  end  of  practice  due  to  early  practice  time.  There  will  be  NO  DRY  LAND  ON  FRIDAYS.    

**Please  note  the  7/8  &  9/10  combo  practices.  Both  age  groups  will  be  combined  then  will  be  broken  up  into  a  Technical  &  Developmental  groups  for  the  summer  schedule.  The  coaches  will  decide  the  best  fit  for  the  swimmer  in  the  first  few  weeks  of  practice.      

Developmental

The  focus  of  this  group  is  to  continue  to  develop  the  skills  to  become  legal  in  all  strokes.  Swimmers  NEW  to  the  team  with  no  prior  experience  should  plan  on  being  in  this  group.  

Technical

The  focus  of  this  group  is  to  build  upon  the  skills  to  refine  stroke  technique  and  swim  faster!  Swimmers  who  are  legal  in  all  strokes  should  plan  on  being  in  this  group.    

Fun  Friday  Practice

Please  note  the  practice  times  for  FUN  FRIDAY  is  for  the  summer  season  ONLY.  This  practice  will  focus  on  swimming  games  and  activities  that  will  benefit  your  swimmer  in  many  ways.  After  all,  this  is  a  recreation  swim  league.  We  should  be  having  fun…  right?
