March Training Camp: Details have not been finalized by OCSRA yet. Attendance in Florida is for HP athletes and upon approval by Helen. Approval will be based on winter training attendance and performance. 

Attendance expectations:
  • Athletes are expected to attend all practices. Time management is a great life skill that athletes learn from having busy schedules. 
  • If there are any practices that you are unable to attend on a regular basis - eg., due to a school commitment, please be sure that you have talked to Helen about this. 
  • If you are unable to attend a practice, you must let Helen know via text or email. 
    • Ideally, it is the athlete who takes responsibility for communicating absences with Helen. 
  • Do not attend training if you are sick. Training when you are ill is not beneficial and you risk spreading your germs to others. You are responsible for informing Helen if you are sick and missing training. 
  • Assignment to a winter training group is at the discretion of the Head Coach. Inadequate attendance may result in the athlete being moved to a different training group or leaving the Swim / Spin program to give someone else an opportunity to participate. 

  • $1200  - all activities included
  • Note - no increase from last year.
