Fall/Winter 2018-2019

The Fall/Winter term starts on Sunday, September 16, 2018.

The general practice schedule for Fall and Winter is:

  • Sunday mornings, 10AM – noon: 50m LC, 4 lanes.
  • Monday and Wednesday mornings, 7:30 – 9 AM: 50m SC, south end.
  • Thursday evenings, 9 – 11 PM: 50m LC, 4 lanes.
  • Friday evenings, 7 – 9 PM: 25 yd.

Each practice is attended by two coaches. Swimmers will be assigned to different lanes according to their speed. Please follow the coaches’ advise and also the practice etiquette rules (http://tmu.ca/pool-etiquette).

There are no practices on statutory holidays as the Athletic Centre is closed. There will be a few more cancellations and changes throughout the term which will be announced through this listserv and on our web site. The same holds true for cancellations and changes due to unforeseen circumstances. Should a practice have to be cancelled on a short notice we will do our best to get an announcement out in time.
