Our tentative practice schedule is as follows:  Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday from 7:30pm-8:45pm and Sunday 1:15-2:30 at the Toms River YMCA.    November Calendar     December Calendar  JANUARY AND FEBRUARY CALENDAR

The season is set to start in November 8.

For those wishing to get a head start on the season but were unable to get into a clinic, Neptune High School's Aquatic Center sells daily passes for $5.00.  Lanes must be prebooked.  See the linked linked information for instructions. Sample workouts are posted on this page.

Swimmers will need the following:

a practice swimsuit - linked here is the type of suit you should buy.  You can buy from anywhere and can get any color or brand practice suit you wish.  

goggles - linked here is a sample set of goggles.  Anything that looks similar to this is fine.  Again, color and where you buy is completely up to you.  

a pull buoy - linked here is a type of pull bouy.  Again, color and where you buy is completely up to you. 

a pair of fins - linked  here are fins you can purchase.  I suggest similar to what I have posted.  Fins that are too big tend to be hard to use.  Again, color and where you buy are completely up to you.  

the YMCA does not have equipment for us to use
