1 – Unable to Participate

All registered swimmers (as of 12/28/2018 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 12/28/2018. 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 12/28/2018, let us know your swimmer is unable to participate.

Reindeer Relays on Thursday

Reindeer RelaysWho’s excited for Reindeer Relays?  

We hope to see all our swimmers on Thursday for Reindeer Relays.  All age groups start at 7:00 PM.

Oh, you’re a first timer?  Don’t know what Reindeer Relays is?

It’s an NCST tradition.  It’s an endurance challenge where we put all the athletes in the water and see who lasts the longest.  That swimmer gets to be Rudolph!  It’s super competitive.  Nah, just kidding, it’s a night of fun and crazy races.  Just how crazy? Come and find out!

All age groups meet at 6:00 PM.

We will be entering all swimmers who are registered for the team as of 12/17/18 will be entered into the meet on 12/27/18.

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!
