From the Aquajet Coaches:

Due to the high school swim team having a swim meet out of town, we are changing Thursday’s, January 17, practice time to 4:00-5:30 p.m. 

We are also offering practice this Friday, January 18, from 4:00-5:30 p.m. This is to make up for the lack of Monday’s practice (pool water quality issues) and to focus on starts and turns!  We appreciate your flexibility!!
