Update On Invitationals

I have bad news.  The Zeeland Invitational didn’t work out. I’m sorry.  Since that fell through yesterday, we’ve been scrambling trying to get us into another invitational,  but we can’t make the timing work. We were looking forward to this, and we know some of you were too.  

But we think it’s important to have a competition before the first actual meet.  (Besides Reindeer Relays.) So, tentatively, we’re going to change the normal practices on 12/27 to be a practice swim meet.  Timers, pads, scoreboard and everything except concessions.  Details to come.

Ok, bad news out of the way.  Remember to watch the team calendar for updates on the practice schedules.  I know the High School and Middle School teams are still adding meets to their schedules and that affects us.  We’ll be updating this calendar as we find out.

And definitely don’t miss Reindeer Relays next week!

First Time Parents Meeting Tonight

Don’t forget the Parent Meeting is tonight.  This is an informational meeting designed for new parents to our team.  If you can’t make it tonight, below is a link to the presentation.

This meeting is in the classroom right next to the swim lobby and will be starting promptly at 6:15 PM.  The Varsity boys swim team has a meeting immediately following ours, so we’ll be keeping the meeting on a brisk pace.

We’ll also be passing out Early Bird Swim Caps after the meeting in the lobby.  Don’t worry if you can’t make it, we’ll pass out the caps to the swimmers after the next few practices.

Coach’s Corner

Here’s some tips and reminders from the coaching staff:

  1. Please remind your swimmers to rinse off before entering the pool.
  2. If your swimmer has long hair, they may want a hair tie or a swim cap.  We do have red swim caps for sale in the office for $5 each.
  3. A spare pair of goggles is never a bad idea.  We do not have any loaners available in the office and they inevitably break or get lost.
