- Participation is up to the discretion of the family. We recommend attending all weekly sessions for maximum skill development. Fees will not be prorated due to other sports, classes, etc.

- Competitive meets are not a focus of this program. Skill development is the focus and meet participation is at the discretion of the coaches.

IMPORTANT!! If you are a returning participant, we must receive registration forms and check by September 1st. At that time, we will open registration to new participants and we WILL NOT BE ABLE to guarantee a space for the fall.  There is a high demand from new swimmers, so we recommend registering by September 15th.  Emails will not save your space in the program.

All swimmers and parents please wait in the spectator stands until coaches invite the swimmers to the pool. College varsity swim team practices will be going on until we start our practice. Please have your child refrain from running and any horse play once they enter the Dodge Fitness Center.  Swim caps are required for anyone with hair at shoulder length or longer.

For any questions, please contact Coach Gustavo gsl2106@columbia.edu or coach Jim jbb2@columbia.edu

**practices subject to cancelation/change due to building closure, university swim meets or university obligations.
