Good Morning TorpedoesNation,

Almost go back to a full day of school today!

SCSC Penguin Plunge

               Congrats to all those swimming this past weekend in Crawfordsville!  From what the coaches have told me, things went well.  More thorough results when they are available.

Arctic Blast Signups

               Entries for our home meet are due today.  If you miss it today, talk to coaches and we will be sure to get you in, but please sign up by today.  Parent worker signups will be out 2 weeks before the meet, so please think about the jobs you would be willing to help with.

Terre Haute North vs. Terre Haute South HS Meet

               On Jan 11th (Thursday), is the annual North vs South swim and dive meet.  Because so many of those athletes are former Torpedoes, and it is a perfect time to motivate our younger swimmers into the end of the season, we will not be having a Torpedoes practice that evening.  Come support the best swimming and diving in the Wabash Valley.

Officials Clinic

               This Friday and Saturday (12th-13th) our own Meet Referee will host a clinic for those interested in becoming officials.  The Friday class is for administrative officials, where Saturday is for strokes and turns.  Check your email for more details, as you not only learn more about the sport, but you also get some rather nice incentives from the club for being an official.

Swimming Life at the Pool on Friday with TECH suits      

               While he will have some of the standard fair (goggles, caps, paddles and mesh bags), the main focus of this trip will be to see about sizing for tech suits.  Jeff will be bringing a number of suits, that you can try on.  This is for our more advanced swimmers (11 and older, attending championship meets).

Sycamore Swim Camps

               In recently found out that ISU will be holding multiple camps this summer.  If we have enough interest from the Torpedoes, they will take $25 off the registration fee.  While they are not cheap experiences, they will be learning from one of the premier Division 1, NCAA coaches in the country.

The camps include 3-day Starts and Turns Camps, as well as 6 day Stroke Camps.  Please talk to your swimmer’s coach about whether or not this might be appropriate for your swimmer. Days and dates are below.

Starts & Turns Camps:  June 14-16 (Thur-Sat), June 22-24 (Fri-Sun)

Swim Camps:   June 17-22 (Sun-Fri), June 24- 29 (Sun-Fri)

Personal Note

               I will be out of town at the end of this week/beginning of next week.   I will have my phone, but my communication will be somewhat limited.  If anything happens that needs immediate attention, please call Coach Dani (812-249-9712).
