Club Swimmers:

If you are a club swimmer that is swimming at the Mako Holiday Spirit Meet in Oxford this weekend, you do not have to attend Friday’s practice.

Attentions Juniors!:

January 10th, Senior night will be upon us before we know it.  As Juniors, you host the event in anticipation of your own night next year.  Shortly, I will be sending out a list of what you are to bring and when to have it at the Rec Center.  Please let me know if you have any problems getting your items.  In addition please email me if you are NOT a member of Sam's club as we will have many items that need to be purchased there.

If you have not done so already, please get your Bios and Pictures to Nancy Sparks ASAP!   You can reach Nancy at [email protected] with any questions.


Thank you to all the parents that worked our first home swim & dive meet.  It was a great success because of our parent's support!  We will be posting the hours families have worked over the next week which will include the CHS Athletic Booster volunteering plus our work events.  Be sure to look at the Sectionals meet and if you have not signed up, please see if you can.  All parents that work the sectional meet get their banquet dinner paid for plus you will get to see some great competition as our swimmers start their qualification process to get to state!

Fairmont Invite:

For Friday’s swim meet, swimmers need to be at the CHS athletic entrance no later than 3:15 – the bus will leave at 3:30.  Meet starts at 6:00 pm at the Kettering Rec Center.  Parents, please arrive at CHS immediately following the meet to pick up your swimmer.

Inclement Weather Policy:

If the WTRC or CHS is closed, there will not be practice on that day. If there is practice in bad weather and parents are not comfortable sending swimmers, please notify the Head Coach BEFORE practice is scheduled to begin.

For Friday morning swim practices if school is canceled (or there is a 2-hour delay) there will NOT be practice. If school is not canceled (or delayed) by 4:30AM, Coach Launi will make a decision based on weather and road conditions. An email and updated post on the website will be sent out by 4:30AM.

Note:  If school is cancelled after a Friday morning practice has started, parents are to pick up their kids at the Rec Center if they normally take the bus to the high school.
