Thanks to everyone who has and will volunteer this weekend. You guys have done a great job representing SCSC!
No Sunday workout this week, but the Saturday morning workout will be 2 1/2 hours in water (6-8:30am.)
Since there is no Monday workout, please go to your high school workout instead.
Make sure you send Carlene your HS times!!! ctakaki@santaclaraswimclub.org
Points for the HS Dual Meet Splashdown 2013 go as follows (this is different from last year!):
50: +1 = 10 points, +1-2 = 5 points, +2-3 = 0 points, 3+ = -5 points
100: +2 = 10 points, +2-3 = 5 points, +3-4 = 0 points, 4+ = -5 points
200: +5 = 10 points, +5-7 = 5 points, +7-9 = 0 points, 9+ = -5 points
500: +9 = 10 points, +9-11 = 5 points, +11-13 = 0 points, 13+ = -5 points
Best time: 15 points
No times turned in: -15 points
I need your times by Sunday evening the week you competed. You also need to let me know if you did NOT compete so you don’t lose 15 points!

Senior 1
Now that JO's are over, it is time to start focusing in on Far Westerns and /or CCS. High School swimmers, make sure that your times and effort in your dual meets are respectable and have purpose. Far Western Swimmers, please check the door on Thursday to see if you are on relays. Go SCSC!

Senior 2
This week Senior 2 sent our largest contingency ever to compete in JOs, with an eye on FWs next month. Keep up the hard work: visualize success! Good luck to all our high school swimmers as their season gets started. In order to maintain optimal fitness during your season, every week high school swimmers should plan to attend as many SCSC practices as possible to counter the less intense, less technical-focus of high school workouts. If you are unable to attend any afternoon practices with us, you still have opportunities T/Th/Saturday mornings. Your performance in the high school season will be much faster, and you will be much more prepared to get right back on track after Leagues or CCS. For raising the most swim-a-thon money we will be celebrating with a group pizza party the week after CCS, so that all our whole group can participate. Details coming soon. Our next Sr. 2 Swimmer meeting will be March 25. We would like to see 100% attendance.
“There may be people that have more talent than you, but there’s no excuse for anyone to work harder than you do.” Derek Jeter, NY Yankees
