LONG COURSE PRACTICES 2019

Long course practices begin Tuesday, June 18 at the UCD Schaal pool and run  through Tuesday, August 6.  

 The Schaal pool is located on the southwest corner of Hutchison and La Rue, adjacent to the new football stadium. Parking is enforced from 7:15am to 5:00pm in the pool lot but is free during the summer after 5:00pm. The DAM LC practices are Tuesday and Thursday.  The morning session (6:00 AM to 7:00 AM) replaces the Arroyo practices on those days. The evening practices (6:00 PM -7:00 PM and 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM) replace the sessions at Civic on those days. At the start and end of each session, DAM is responsible for placing and removing the 50m lane lines that we use. Please plan on arriving 10 minutes before the start of practice and/or staying 5 minutes after to help with this duty. 

Typically, the rental group before us in the afternoon swims the 25y width of the pool and ends at 6pm. If we're ready to place the 50m lines in when they're finished, we can usually switch over in less than 10 minutes but it's never exact. The 7:00pm begins exactly one hour after the start of the previous practice. Depending on the size of the group we share the pool with in the morning, we may have 5 lanes, but we're reserved for four. In the evening, we split the pool with the Aquadarts and always have just four lanes.

This summer, deck space at the north end of the pool is back to normal as the new ICA Aquatics building is completed and now open.
