JEA ORCAS SUMMER SWIM TEAM

Dates:

June 6 - July 29, 2022

2023 Summer Season to be Announced soon.

 

Practice Times:

Monday-Thursday, 7:30am-8:45am

(4 practices per week, practice will be canceled in the case of inclement weather)

 

Both Junior Orcas and Orcas will swim at the same time! Warm-ups and cool downs will be held together, and practice will be split by ability so that each child gets the most of practice and has more individualized attention from our coaches.

 

Summer Swim Team will focus on the mechanics of stroke technique, endurance, team building and fun! The combined practice will aid in building team unity and learning through observing peers.

 

Drop off begins 10 minutes prior to the start of practice and pick-up ends promptly at 9am.

 

Capacity per Practice

Min: 6 participants

Max: 30 participants

 

Location:

JEA Outdoor pool (will be canceled in case of inclement weather or gym space for ground-based workout can be done when gym is available)

Swim Meets:

We are excited to announce that we are now part of the Savannah Coastal Swim League and will compete against teams such as The Landings, Isle of Hope, Mayfair Marlins and more!

 

There will be three (3) in-person swim meets held; dates and location will be announced at the start of the season. 

The JUNIOR ORCAS will only be allowed to compete in our own Swim Meets against the JEA Orcas for safety purposes. The JEA Orcas Team will be the only team competing against outside locations (if it becomes available). At any time during the season your child becomes ready to move up to the JEA Orcas, they can begin to compete with local teams at that time!
