First Day of Practice

FIRST DAY OF PRACTICE: Monday, May 15th!

The coaches and the SVST board are very excited to start another great summer! Please bring extra towels and warm clothes as it may be cool in the evenings. We encourage everyone to wear goggles and if your swimmer has long hair, a cap can be very helpful!

You can find the practice schedule link, in the menu bar.  There you will also find links to all events for the season as well as just the meet schedule.  The first 5 events will be listed in the Upcoming Events section on this page.

Important Reminders:

If you have not registered yet, please do so.  Registration after May 30th will result in a late fee.

Please note that paying POOL DUES IS A REQUIRED BUT SEPARATE PROCESS.  See http://www.shepherdsvineyardpool.com/ to pay pool dues.   Due to liability and insurance issues, if you have not paid your pool membership or team membership dues, you WILL NOT be allowed to participate with the swim team (including practices) until all dues are paid.

New Members:

Please take a look at the Red Book to read EVERYTHING about our team and its upcoming season. It explains a lot about how meets are run, what to bring,  and where to go.  A link to the Red Book is provided in the menu bar for easy reference through out the season.

Try to attend an optional New Members meeting. These meetings are an informal opportunity to meet board members, coaches and ask questions.
Wednesday, May 24th or Friday, May 26th at 6PM – meet at the upper pool deck near the pool check in desk.
