Greetings Super Bronze and Super Squad Families! I hope everyone had a fantastic holiday season, and a happy new year! Thank you to all families for the wonderful and generous gifts we received, we appreciate it and you all very much!
This issue of the Super Scoop will have Practice Changes, Meet Info, Meet Entries, and a Meet Sign-Up.
As you know by now our Practice Schedule is on our website, and available by clicking that link! Our first few weeks of practice will consist of a learning period for each stroke. This is a chance to clean up our strokes at a slower pace, so later in season when things start to pick up, we are swimming clean and efficiently. So as it may be “boring” for some swimmers, this is a very important time of the season!
SB Schedule Changes:
Saturday, 2/3 – All 8/Unders @
11:30am-12:30pm; All 9/Overs @ 10:30am-11:30am
Saturday, 2/10 – No Practice
SS Schedule Changes:
Thursday, 2/1 – Practice Change
to 6:30-7:30pm in the 25Y Pool (HS Swim Meet)
Saturday, 2/3 - All 8/Unders @ 11:30am-12:30pm; All 9/Overs @ 10:30am-11:30am
Saturday, 2/10 – No Practice
NEW Locker Room Policy
So Far … So Good! (Thank you for being accepting this new policy)
Effective immediately, we will be putting in place a new Locker Room Policy for before and after practices.
All Swimmers will have 5 minutes of Locker Room time before practice and 15 minutes of Monitored Locker Room time after practice. This restriction should allow for enough time to change into a bathing suit before practice, and enough time to shower, dry off, and change back into clothes after practice, if the swimmers use the time efficiently. Should a Swimmer not be finished changing, they will be asked to use the Single Occupancy Bathroom connected to the Lobby in order to finish
This Policy will be strictly enforced, and as I mentioned above, effective immediately and starting today. I am asking everyone to share this information with their swimmers before practice today. I will be mentioning it before practice begins as well.
