Swimming and Diving Teams

Summer - 2017


Coaches:

Swimming Coach Gary Grey
Assistant Swimming Coaches

Peter Nicholson, Jock Tuttle.

Diving Coach Thea Cox

Swimming Practice Schedule:
Practices are  held Monday through Friday and will begin on Monday, June 8th and continue through the last week of July.  Swimmers are grouped and practice approximately according to age.  Coaches can and do make adjustments in terms of what swimmers swim in which practice based upon skills, and competitive swimming experience.  It is not unusual for an “8 & Under” to practice with the older group of swimmers with the coach’s approval.

8:00 - 9:00 a.m. Swimmers 11 years of age and older
9:00 - 9:45 a.m. Swimmers 10 years of age and younger

**SPECIAL NOTE: Swim Team members in the 13-15 Age-Group are invited to attend a 7:00 - 8:00 a.m. Special Practice designated for this age-group.  There are several advantages to attending this workout: 

      •Small numbers in each workout lane.

      •Workouts specificaly suited to your age and skills.

      •A chance to experience beautiful and quiet mornings.

Diving Practice:
Children interested in the Diving Program will meet on Tuesday, June 13th at 10:00 a.m.  An exact practice schedule will be developed at that time.  Normally, practices will be scheduled between 10:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. 

NEW THIS SEASON:  The diving team will compete in three meets with all the other Inter-Club Conference Teams in a combined diving team format.  The diving schedule is as follows:

SPTC Team Suits and Caps:
Team swim suits will again be available for order during the first two weeks of practice; we will have “try-on” suits available and we will send in a group discount order each Friday.  This year's suit is the same suit design as last summer.  Caps can be purchased at a cost of $10.00 from any of the coaches.  Both swimming suits and caps will charged to your club account.


SPECIAL SWIM TEAM LESSONS:


•The"Tool Box":   This summer we are again providing a special session for swimmers on the SPTC swim team.  We've labeled these sessions "The Tool-Box". These sessions will be held from 9:00-10:00 each Friday morning beginning Friday, June 16th.  Each session is 1-hour long and we will provide specific instruction on the skills that we consider to be basic "Tools/Skills"- the Peripheral Skills that are needed to be successful in competitive swimming.  Skills covered include starts and turns for all the competitive strokes including the crawl and backstroke tumble turn, as well as the racing dive, and the all-important use of the Dolphin Kick.

Check program details and cost under the Instructional Swim Tab on this website.


Competitive Stroke Class: This is where the four competitive strokes are taught and learned.  Specific competitive stroke instruction is given on the Crawl, Backstroke, Breast Stroke, and Butterfly.  See the Instructional Swimming Program tab for complete details.
