Join NCST Online

Practices
Practices begin the first week of November and ending mid-February at the conference championships.

Practice schedule being similar to previous seasons – generally 5 days a week. This is meant to accommodate the busy family. This is being offered with the expectation that your swimmer will be able to attend at least 3 practices a week.

  • Age Group 9 & 10 – 6:00 PM – 7:15 PM
  • Age Group 8 & Under – 6:00 PM – 6:45 PM
  1. In order to participate in the NCST your swimmer must be able to compete in the distances for his or her age group:
    1. Swimmers competing 8 & under – swim 25 yards unassisted
    2. Swimmers competing 9 & up – swim at least 50 yards unassisted
  2. NCST is a competitive swim team.  Your swimmer is expected to compete in swim meets.  NCST is not swim lessons.
