Dear Swimmers and Parents,
 
New Practice Times Starting Tuesday, October 7th
5:30-6:30pm - Hammerheads 1 & 2 (Combined practice with Coach Monica, Tasha, Mirelle & Evan)
6:30-7:30pm - Leopard Sharks (Coach Monica)
 
Do to the fact we have not been able to find a permanent full time Hammerheads 1 Group coach, we will be combining both Hammerheads Group 1 & 2 starting Tuesday October 7th.  These two groups will both swim from 5:30-6:30pm Mon-Fri.  This will alow Coach Monica to oversee and coach both groups with multiple assistant coaches working with her. Monica’s Leopard Sharks Group practice will be switched to 6:30-7:30pm.  All other groups will practice at their regular times (Makos, Age Group, & Seniors).
 
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me directly at jenniferthiem@vallejoaquatics.org or (707)292-6473cell.  We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you or your family.
 
Thank you,
Jennifer Thiem
Head Swim Coach
