This year the National Prep group has a goal of $5500.  The group benefits from this money in a variety of ways.  This year we are looking to buy/fix some broken pace clocks that seen years of use so far, as well as replace some other training equipment.  A portion of the money that the team collects is donated to the USA Swimming Foundation which provides grants for low income facilities to provide much needed swim lessons.  The money raised also helps the team provide travel opportunities for our swimmers.  Please consider making this fundraiser a priority.  This year I am offering the following incentives for the group:

a.100 % participation will earn the group Breakfast after Sat workout

b.Reach $5500 will earn pizza and ice cream

c. If we reach $5500, Sean will swim all 200 laps (5000 yards) of the Swim-A-Thon

d.Top 3 earners will receive a gift card

Swimmer of the Month

September--> Cate Behl

​Cate has been in the group since the spring, but this fall she is really working hard.  She is pushing herself on challenging intervals and attending practice regularly.  She is putting forth the effort that getting to the next level takes.  I am very excited to see how Cate does in the first couple of meets.

Other Notes

We will be using Twitter again this year for practice updates and changes. This is the best way to change or cancel practice at the last minute and make sure that everyone knows about it. When you sign up properly, you will get a text message sent to your phone with the updates. I will still send out emails, but I can do Twitter from my phone anywhere, I can only send the emails from a computer. Please logon to Twitter, create an account, and follow NPUpdates.



You can always get in touch with me by email at I check my email a couple times a day usually so you can expect a response within a day or so.
