Update: about new practice times for 2014: We're making a switch to the practice slots this year. Last year's practice was based solely on age, which forced some swimmers into a situation where neither they nor the other swimmers in the lane were benefitting. In an effort to provide the safest, most challenging environment for all swimmers, there will be three practices of the same length as last year (1:15, 1:00, 0:45) but swimmers will be broken up by ability as opposed to age. The details are still being worked out and will be forwarded along as soon as they are finalized.
