PENGUIN SEASON UPDATE!!! (Updated 7/9/2020)

Penguin Families,

The season has settled in very nicely. Hopefully your swimmers are coming home a bit worn out from a great practice.

Spirit Wear Sale:

- Our 2020 Team T-Shirts, Sweat Pants, and Face Masks will be on sale through Sunday night (the 12th). Get your oder in as this will be the last chance to place an order this season.

Penguin Minis:

Our Penguin Mini Program should be starting up very soon. Keep a watch out for more information from Coach Wesley if you have a swimmer that has been waiting for this program to start.

Practice Schedule:

The Penguins are utilizing both the Landings and the Oaks pools for our practices. Practices are 45 minutes long and have a 10 minute break between.
-Oaks: 6:00, 6:55, 7:50, 8:45am.
-Landings: 6:30, 7:25, 8:20, 9:15am.
-Practices times may shift when we transition the team to Phase 3 swimming.

Practice Season Outlook:

Coach Wesley is starting to finalize plans for a distanced swim meet amongst our team this month! Safety protocols will be in place to ensure distancing between swimmers and volunteers. This will provide swimmers with the opportunity to put all their hard work to the test and gain the racing experience that they have been missing out on these past couple of months. Plus, it'll be a fun event for swimmers to look forward to as we spend most of our time at home! More information to come!
