We realize that college entrance exams and recruiting trips take a toll on practice attendance. We appreciate the effort to make up with National Prep on Fridays when possible.
Equipment needs - fins, paddles Finis Palm positive and fingertip, pull bouy, snorkel, nose clip, kick board, bag- MARKED CLEARLY
We are getting ready to move indoors and there is always the chance of someone removing equipment from your bag- it is easier to get back if your name is on it.
SWIM-A-THON...stay on this fund raising activity. Right now we are in first place but we are falling short of the group goal of 100% participation @ $75.00 per person which is above the national average. Last year we set a pretty high standard for other groups to shoot for- we can have 100% again this year. Already the two boys swimming high school have exceeded our group expectation - thanks Justin and Jacob. Way to give back to the team and I challenge those of you who are with us everyday in the outdoor pool to raise as much as these two guys. It is fun to do - not particularly,but we do enjoy the benefits our facility gives us so let's keep raising that total.
KING and QUEEN of the Pool Test Set
Last Sunday we began a "King of the Pool" test set - if you were there you got a copy of the results. SAM MARLOW is the reigning King and JORDAN STOUT will hold the title of Queen until next time in November. The next time will depend on total number of seconds you improve. If you do not have an initial set of times we will find a way to figure your results.
Recruiting cycle begins again - Mae Riordan and Sydney Zupan are heading out to check out potential collegiate programs. National group athletes will enjoy there last long weekend with no practice..nothing on schedule for Sunday Sept 1 or Monday Sept 2. Mornings will start up after the return from the USAS Convention of Coach Liston and athlete rep Artie Hidalgo.
