Important – Locker Room Behavior

We’re continuing to get reports of inappropriate behavior in the locker rooms.

Please, talk to your athletes about appropriate locker room behavior.  This includes language, behavior, personal space and personal belongings.  Be courteous and be respectful.

We really don’t want to move to locker room shifts, that will just delay departures.  Please talk to your swimmers.

Reminder – Opt out of 1/7 Home Meet by 1/2

Before y’all get cra-cra tonight, don’t forget to sign up to volunteer for the home meet, donate to the concession stand (all proceeds go to the team), or most importantly, if you can’t participate in the first home meet, we need to know.

Thanks to all you volunteers, parents, athletes and coaches who make this program great.  We’re all looking forward to great season.  It all starts next week.

Happy New Year from NCST!

1 – Registration/Unable to Participate

All registered swimmers (as of 12/30/2016 at 6:00 PM) will be entered into the meet. You must let us know if your athlete will not be participating.

Swimmers not showing up will affect relay teams (3 other swimmers) so it is imperative that you let us know if your athlete is not participating by 6:00 PM on 1/2/2017.  This isn’t like RSVPing to a family party, if we don’t have an accurate participation count, other swimmers will lose chances to swim.

By 6:00 PM on 1/2/2017, let us know your swimmer is unable to participate.

We Cannot Participate in the 1/7 Home Swim Meet

Likewise, if your swimmer has not actually registered for the team yet, he or she will not be entered into any events. Please register by 6:00 PM on 12/30/2016.

2 – Concession Donations

One way we keep our registration fee low for NCST is by generating revenue from our home meet concessions. Unlike the normal school sports concessions where items are purchased, marked up, and then sold, The NCST relies on items that are purchased and donated by you the parents of the team. This way, your contribution of a box of candy or bag of apples is magnified and really helps the team.

Click the link below for a list of things we need for the coming meet(s). Please sign up for at least one of the items, or more if you are able : ). If you are short on time and do not have time to run out and pick something up we will also take cash donations that we can use to purchase what we need. Please bring your donations to the pool deck during practice. We have a great tradition of support by the team parents and it makes a huge difference so thank you very much!

I Can Donate Items to the Concession Stand

NCST is a 501(c)(3) corporation and your donations may be tax deductible.

In addition, we are looking for volunteers to help run the concession stand as well as apprentices to learn the concession stand operations.

Please contact Christy Pataniczek if you are able to volunteer or are interested in getting involved in concession operations.

3 – Volunteers

We have several volunteer needs to help keep our swim meets running smoothly.  Please consider signing up to help the team out on Saturday, January 7, 2017.

Never helped before? No problem, we will train you, help you and thank you profusely!

Clean Up Crew, Timers, Marshalers and Greeters… they are all easy jobs.

Lost and Found

The Lost and Found basket is overflowing again – lots of towels and goggles, and a few suits too.  Also, we have had reports of missing team suits in the boys locker room.  Please look through your swimmer’s bag.  If you find something picked up by accident, bring it to the lost and found.

Please check out the lost and found at practice

Practice Arrivals and Locker Rooms

Please try your best to get your swimmers to practice on time.  Remind them not to dawdle getting ready.  If they are going to be late to practice, please minimize the interruptions on deck.  Late arrivals are causing a distraction for some of the swimmers.

Also, please talk to your swimmers about proper locker room ettiquette.  We’ve had a couple reports of inappropriate language in the locker rooms.

Reindeer Relays Recap

Wow!  We had about 120 swimmers tonight at Reindeer Relays.  Hope everyone had a great time!

Special thanks to Coach Koperski for announcing!  Thanks to all the other volunteers who helped.

Have a great holiday!

If your swimmer didn’t pick up their grey team shirt, they will be available next week at practices.  Same for red parent shirts.

Don’t forget, no practice on Monday, but there are swim practices the rest of the week. Nothing cures cabin fever like 50m freestyle! Check the calendar on the site for times over the break.

Reminder – Pick Up Spirit Wear Orders Tonight

Spirit Wear and Parent T-Shirts are available for pickup tonight in the Pool office.

We will have staff available for you to pick up your orders:

  • Tonight – 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM
  • Thursday – 6:30 PM – End of Reindeer Relays

If you are not available to pickup this week, staff will bring your orders to practice next week.  Note:  Coaches are busy coaching and will not have access to the spirit wear.  You must pick up from a staff member in the pool office.

Team Shirts

If you registered your swimmer before December 1st – we will be passing out the swimmer’s team shirts beginning Thursday at Reindeer Relays.  If you are not able to attend Reindeer Relays, we will continue passing them out at practices.

Reindeer Relays on Tomorrow

It’ll be a fun practice to kick off the holiday break! The coaches are dreaming up some crazy races and activities for the kids. Just how crazy? Come and find out!

ALL AGE GROUPS START AT 6:30 PM!

It’s an NCST tradition.

Don’t forget, there are swim practices all through the holiday break, as well. Nothing cures cabin fever like 50m freestyle! Check the calendar on the side for times over the break.
