2018 Practice Schedule

Swim practice is held Monday - Friday, from May 1, 2018 to July 13, 2018.

The BCC Sharks Swim Team has two swimming pools available for practice:

Ability Based Practice Groups :  What Group Am I In?

Both after-school and summer morning practices will be arranged by ability. Your swimmer will be practicing with the group that best suits their swimming ability. (Note: evening summer practices will be mixed ability groups.) Our coaches and board feel that our swimmers will learn and improve faster in their swimming if they are training alongside swimmers with similar skills. Prior to the first day of practice (May 1), you will be notified of the practice group to which your swimmer has been assigned. 

Previous Sharks swimmers are to report to the practice group they swam in last season. They will be evaluated during practice the first week and adjustments made if necessary. 

New Sharks swimmers will be evaluated at the Waterloo Swim Center on Saturday, April 7, 2018 and/or Saturday, April 28, 2018 at 3pm. 

Swimmers share a tent with and compete with other Sharks swimmers in the same age group at swim meets. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our coaches.  

Watch for Remind, Facebook, Twitter alerts, and web site announcements for times when the practice schedule might vary due to pool conflicts, weather, maintenance and other unforeseen circumstances.

Inclement Weather Practice Cancellation Guidelines

Here are some guidelines Sharks coaches will use when determining whether or not to cancel practice:

  • If there is thunder and/or lightning, practice definitely will be cancelled. 
  • Practice will not be cancelled due to rain alone; we will swim in the rain unless the amount of rain makes it difficult to see the swimmers in the pool. 

The Sharks use Remind and Twitter to send practice cancellation alerts so be sure to follow us!

Evening Summer Practices (Spicewood Pool)

Due to the limited number of practice slots, evening summer practices are limited to those families with parents working away from the home. Evening practices are offered Monday-Friday beginning May 30 at the Spicewood Pool.

  • Spots in evening practices are limited and will be made available to accommodate families with two working parents, who are UNABLE to get their swimmer to morning summer practice due to work schedules.
  • Spots will be assigned on a first-come-first-served basis and once an evening practice time becomes full it will be closed.
  • We will make every effort to accommodate preferences, it is not guaranteed that your swimmer will be placed into your preferred evening practice time.
  • Swimmers who opt for a spot in evening practices will be committing to attending ONLY evening practices all summer. Unfortunately we will not be able to allow movement between morning and evening practices for any swimmers.
