Our teams practice Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday from 7:45-9:30 a.m., rain or shine. Attendance and punctuality at practices are expected of all our swimmers. If a swimmer will miss a practice, he or she should inform his or her coach beforehand. If a swimmer misses a number of practices without telling his or her coach, that swimmer will not be placed in the upcoming dual meet. All practices are conducted by our experienced coaching staff.
All swimmers are required to bring the following swimming supplies to EVERY practice:
Two pairs of goggles
One pair of training fins
Two swimming caps
Competitive swimsuit (boys: jammers, girls: one-piece) *Do not wear the team swimsuit to practice*
Towel and warm clothing
The above items can be found at any local swimming or sporting store.
Our teams practice and host home meets at the distinguished Garden City Pool, located at 52 Cherry Valley Avenue in Garden City, New York. This club-like facility boasts three pools: the adult pool with eight 25-yard swim lanes, the main pool with removable swim lanes and two water slides, and the children's pool with a modern and interactive aquatic play structure. Our bathhouse, restrooms, and locker rooms were recently renovated to feature state-of-the-art technology and functionality. In addition to new indoor dining and multiple green and playground areas, the pool offers direct access to Garden City Community Park, which houses four baseball/softball fields, a large multi-use field, four indoor tennis courts, four platform tennis courts, a hockey rink, a playground, and a beautiful 18-hole miniature golf course.
