2022 Season

watch your email for End-of-Season Updates!

Practices for the week of Oct. 31st will remain daily: 3:00-4:30 PM, at Nozomi Aquatic Center (parent pick-up at 4:30 PM).  Our practice time does not change, even if a student gets out of school early. Swimmers are expected to attend every practice (unless attending Club swim). 

Bus transportation. Meet the bus after school in the Senior (south) lot Monday-Friday. Please note, this is a one-way trip from Corona to Nozomi.  Parents must pick up their swimmer from the pool by 4:30 PM - please use the west end of the Nozomi property for pick up after practice.

What to bring to practice. Swimmers should be at the pool, ready to begin practice, by 3:00 PM wearing their suit and with all necessary swim/dive gear (including water bottle, suit, cap, goggles, towel, sunscreen, snack, etc). 

Water. Athletes need to be drinking water all day before practice! The team will provide ice water jugs for practice every day, so don't forget your hydro flasks and water bottles! 

Equipment. If you own your own swim gear (paddles, buoy, kickboards, etc) please bring to practice. If you do not, the team has equipment that can be borrowed for the season. We recommend East Valley Sports or Ski Pro if you need goggles or other swim gear during the season. 

Riding the bus. Typically, all athletes are required to ride the bus to and from meets. Corona has a strict policy regarding students driving to practice. Students must obtain approval to drive to practice by contacting the Corona Athletics office. Upperclass students are not permitted to drive underclassmen to practice unless obtaining approval through the athletics office. If you will be driving yourself (or others) to practice, please complete this student driver waiver.

Saturdays (6:00-8:00 AM). Developmental Saturday practice will be held at Nozomi Pool and is open to everyone. Check the calendar and sign-up form (not held on days of Invitationals). This is an optional practice. 

Club swimmers. As in the past, club swimmers are expected to attend two practices per week, which has historically been on Mondays and Wednesdays, though they are welcome to attend every day.  

USA Swimming and Team USA Guidelines. These are the USA Swimming guidelines and Team USA guidelines for diving that our team will be following for practice and meets. We will also follow the guidelines required by the City of Chandler and Corona del Sol Athletics.

Swim & Dive Online Store

Coach Ron would like every swimmer to have the following equipment to bring to practice: goggles, fins, paddles, buoy and a kickboard.

Visit the online team store at East Valley Sports to pick up any needed training gear and accessories.  

Limited inventory of training equipment will be available at Nozomi, so please plan on bringing your own equipment to practice if you can. Don't forget the goggles!

East Valley Sports has provided some great deals for the team on both swim training equipment and accessories, like mesh gear bags, swim backpacks (they can customize!), parkas and more.
