Thank you Coach Tish, for putting together the following for our familes!  

Dear Y HubFins Families,

We are so excited that you have chosen to participate in the upcoming Tupelo long course meet. This promises to be a wonderful weekend of swimming, team community, and watching our swimmers as they strive to accomplish their goals for the 2021 Long Course season.

With that in mind, we also realize that you are committing a weekend out of your summer, taking time from your schedule, investing in your swimmer, leaving home, and traveling with your family to an unfamiliar location. As both Coach Addy and I know from our years of competition, every meet offers the opportunity for a mini-vacation, of sorts. Time away from the pool proves most beneficial for our swimmers as it allows them the chance to break away from their meet mindset while they relax and explore the town of the meet host with their family. 

For that reason we have contacted a few of our Tupelo friends in search of both sightseeing locations, as well as local restaurant recommendations, to help make your stay outside of the pool more enjoyable for you and your swimmer.
