About HIS Swimming
The Hangzhou International School Swim Team was started in 2011. The team consists of 3 swimming groups: Gold, Silver, and Bronze and swims at the Rainbow City Complex Pool on Mondays and Wednesdays. Swimmers are encouraged to practice on their own on the weekends to add additional practice & conditioning. Please see swim group descriptions for more details regarding practice times and requirements for each group. The team is coached by Zach Brooks. Please contact him via email if you have any questions about the HIS Swim Team or would like to arrange a try-out: firstname.lastname@example.org

***Last Practice of Semester 1 - November 30
Please note that November 30 was the last day of swim practice for the semester. Following Santa Splash, there will be no more swimming events or practice in the month of December. I encourage swimmers to stay in shape by enjoying other activities and events inside or outside of school. This is a great opportunity for swimmers to relax and not have the pressures of weekly practice.
If you do choose to stay active in the water, a good resource for swim workouts can be found at active.com.
