Registration Deadlines

If you haven’t registered your swimmer yet, you have until 12/1 to receive a team t-shirt. We will be promptly closing t-shirt orders the morning of 12/1 so we can place the order with our vendor.

We will be ordering team and parent shirts at the same time.

Rock the Blocks Invitational Registration Due 11/28

Rock The BlocksNCST will be participating in the Kentwood Rock the Blocks invitational on 12/3.

This is an optional invitational and the fees are not included with your NCST Team registration.

This invite is particularly fun as its rock-n-roll themed and its a great way for your swimmer to see how a meet is before the regular meets start.

We Made It!

First week of practices done.  I have a weekend in view so this email is going to be short and to the point.  But lots of details inside:

1. Practice on Monday is cancelled.
Sorry, totally missed that the High School has Winter Sports Introduction Meetings Fall Sports Awards Banquets all night long.  The Team Calendar is the place to watch.

2. Tuesday Night Parent Meeting
6:15 in the Athletic Classroom by the pool lobby.

3. Check it Out Swimmers
If you haven’t registered for the team yet, please do so online.  To participate in practices athletes must be registered for the team.

4. Kentwood Invitational
We haven’t heard any details on the invitational from them yet.  So I am going to casually slide this over to the maybe column.  If we get details and can pull registration together we’ll go for it.  Remember, invitationals are optional and the entry fees are not covered with your team registration.

5. Mannequin Challenge Video
Last night the Gold Training Group made a Mannequin Challenge Video.  We’ll also be submitting this to Swim Outlet contest and will be asking for your help in voting.

Watch the Gold Group Mannequin Challenge Video

See you on Tuesday!
