Blues Swimmers Prep for Upcoming Season
The SMA Swim Team will begin workouts on Monday, Nov. 17, 2014. Students interested in participating on the team must have all eligibility paperwork completed along with the athletic participation fee submitted to the Athletic Office by Friday, Nov. 14th. Students have up to 2 weeks to join the team or drop the sport; meaning they must begin practicing with the team no later than Dec. 1st or decide not to continue by that same date.
The team practices every weekday afternoon from 3:30 - 5:15 PM at the PSU Stott Center Pool. Competition meets begin in December; please refer to the meet schedule posted above for dates, times and locations. Swimmers must commit to attending all practices and competitions; club swimmers will need to discuss their club practice situation with SMA Head Coach Lisa Best within the 2 week window at the beginning of the season to participate.
The team will practice over the Christmas Break and participation is optional, but highly encouraged. Students not able to attend the team practices at this time are also strongly encouraged to find a pool to continue their training and maintain their swim fitness over the break.
