•   Places to Train

    Practice is strongly recommended to be competitive. Because St. Mel does not have a pool for team practice, our swimmers have been invited by local club teams to practice along with them. Please note that costs for swim club and/or stroke lessons are your responsibility. 
    Our swimmers have the option to train with the teams listed below.  We recommend that St. Mel swimmers wear their RED St. Mel cap to help identify team members at practice.  Please contact Andrea McIntyre if you need a new complimentary cap for the summer.
