Practice Schedule for TriJuniors Finalized

I have begun to finalize the TriJuniors practice schedule, and created everything in a Google calendar, which should be up on the website shortly. The website is scheduled to be finished this afternoon.

The practice sessions will be during the evening hours during the weekdays, and in the AM hours on the weekends.

A typical week will look like...

Monday - Off from training
Tuesday - 5:30 - 7:30 PM at University City High School track
Wednesday - Every other Wednesday evening will be an open water swim workout, at Ventura Cove in Mission Bay, 5:30 - 7:15 PM
Thursday - On the alternate weeks from Wednesday practices, there will be a Thursday evening practice session, with details and venue still TBD based upon enrollment of athletes
Friday - Practice on their own
Saturday - AM session at 8 AM to 11 AM, or race, or travel to race venue for light and easy practice, details of practice and venue TBD
Sunday - AM session at 9 AM to noon, or race, details of practice and venue TBD

So one week athletes will have organized workouts on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday, while the following week it will be Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday.

Why the details of practice and venue TBD? (TBD = to be determined)
The reasons for the practice venue and details of the session being TBD, is because we need to find venues which are close to the athletes, but also meet their needs. If the athletes need mostly swim help, then we will do these sessions at a pool, or some sort of venue for swimming. If the athletes all come from one part of town, then I will likely put the venues as close to them as possible.

Athletes will be expected to complete some training sessions on their own, which will be clearly communicated to them via accounts with
