February AGI Meet – Entries Due February 9th

The meet has changed and is now OPEN TO ALL swimmers, please notify Audra if you would like to attend this meet if you have not signed up for it already.  The meet will be Friday (400IM & 500 FR), Saturday and Sunday February 23rd-25th at Evergreen College. We will be exchanging the AGI meet with the Daffodil Meet and attending ONLY the AGI meet.  If you have any questions, please let Audra know.  J  Thanks!



In the next few weeks the Long Course Meet Schedule and Meet Signup paperwork will be coming in the Poseidon this Week. Long Course Season runs from April thru August every year.  The meets for Long Course fill almost immediately and we need to have all entries ready prior to the opening of the event.    It is crucial that families complete the signup and return it to Audra or Kelli immediately.  If you have any questions after receiving the paperwork, please feel free to contact Audra.  


Equipment Bags:


If you are a RACER, Challenger, Regional, or Senior swimmer you should have an individual equipment bag that you keep at the pool for your use.  We have a large number of swimmers that are in these groups that do not have their own equipment. 


If you have any questions – please email or talk to Audra.   


Poseidon Board Meeting, Tuesday February 6th in the game room at Thorbeckes – 6 PM.         


NUTRITION:  After heredity and training, nutrition plays the largest role in the quality of a swimmer's performance.  HYDRATE, HYDRATE, HYDRATE!!!

Every swimmer should have a water bottle at the end of their training lane.  Swimmers sweat during their workouts; the same amount of dehydration occurs during a swim workout as does a person doing a “dry” workout.  REMEMBER your water bottle every day.  It is just as important as your cap, suit, and goggles.  You wouldn’t come to swim practice without one of them – don’t come without your water bottle.
