Pool Practices

  • Pool practices begin in June. Currently, the pool is scheduled to open on June 12th, but we are working with City Officials to try to get it open earlier for our practices. 

  • Practice will be held at the Columbia Falls city pool - Pinewood Aquatic Center - 925 4th Ave W, Columbia Falls, MT 59912

  • Once the city pool is open, practices will run between 6am - 10am.  Typically all swimmers must be picked up by 9:50 am.  The coaching staff will assign practice slots to each swimmer based on ability, staffing numbers and what they feel best benefits the swimmer.
