Savannah Long Course Practices & Carpool Sign-up 2019
(this is a team hosted event)
Senior and Gold will practice in Savannah on Mondays and Wednesdays 9:00am to 11:15am, and Fridays from 9:00am to 11:00am. Silver will practice in Savannah on Fridays from 9:00am to 11:00am. The practices will be held at the Chatham County Aquatic Center, 7240 Sallie Mood Drive. Please be aware that we will modify the schedule from time to time as needed heading into and out of meets.
Swimmers and drivers will meet at 7:20AM and load up and leave no later than 7:30am Monday, Wednesday, and Friday in the small parking lot across from the Rec Center next to the Softball and Football practice field. If swimmers do not arrive by the scheduled time, the carpools will not wait for them and they will be responsible for their own travel to practice.
We need parent volunteers to signup to drive carpool! The number of carpool drivers will depend on the number of swimmers requesting carpool. We will be back at the Rec Center parking lot at approximately 12:00pm.

If for any reason your child will not be attending when we are expecting them for carpool, you MUST text Anne Lofye (404) 784-2917 and their coach.

Prior note from Coach Mike:
We want the carpools to be as smooth as possible, from sign up to
notice of anyone not going to practice on a given day. Please
remember it is set up as a convenience by our parent volunteer
organizers and drivers. We are asking that everyone make it
as easy as possible on the people who are volunteering to help make
this happen for the swimmers. We need everyone to be prompt in
their responses and communications when asked or needed. We will
have 35 to over 50 swimmers headed down on a given day and it's a
lot to organize and just a few families not communicating can
effect a lot of people. Starting this summer we will only be doing
point to point trips to Savanah from the Rec Center to help stay
within the USA Swimming travel guidelines for team travel and
insurance. There will be NO requests of swimmers to only travel
with certain other swimmers or parents. If someone has a concern
about that, they need to communicate that with me directly, not our
drivers or organizers. Swimmers may choose not to use the car pool
and travel on their own to practice but we must be given written
notice that that is your intention.
Families who are not prompt in communicating with the organizers
may be withdrawn for using the carpool and will be responsible for
their own travel to Savannah. Swimmers and drivers will meet at
7:20AM and load up and leave no later than 7:30am MWF in the small
parking lot across from the Rec Center next to the Softball and
Football practice field. If swimmers do not arrive by the
scheduled time the car pools will not wait for them and they will
be responsible for their own travel to
