Eichler high school swim practice will start May 14, 7:00-8:00pm every day. We're excited to see all our high school Gators back at Eichler!

See announcement below for additional high school dryland practices.


Want to hang out with all your Eichler friends? Want to shave off seconds and earn PB3s? Want to explore the ins-and-outs of cross-training? Then dryland is the thing for you! On-land cardio and strength-training exercises are the perfect supplement to swim practices.

Our Eichler coaches have specially designed dryland workouts to enhance the gator experience -- dryland is the ultimate team bonding that results in faster times! Our very own Gator alumnus and dryland extraordinaire, Aaron Schultz, will be coaching our teenage gators in dryland practices. Dryland practices will start May 21 -- see practice times below:

11-14-year-olds (6:05-7:00pm swim practice): MWF 5:45-6:15pm, TR 6:05-6:15pm
