MONDAY MESSAGE FROM YOUR AQUAHAWG COACHES FOR February 5, 2018
PRACTICE SCHEDULE: Regular practice schedule for all groups this week!
AQUAHAWGS INVITATIONAL: If your swimmer took a pair of Apple AirPods to the meet this weekend and came home with half a pair, we can help you out. A single AirPod was found in our team’s seating area on Saturday. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to claim.
LAST CHANCE MEET: The Last Chance meet on February 17th is our final opportunity to qualify for season championships! Due to a change in The Jones Center pool availability on Feb 17th, our Last Chance Meet must conclude by 10 a.m. To accommodate swimmers who are close to earning cuts for the State Championship or Sectionals, the eligibility for this meet has been revised:
To swim in the Last Chance Meet,
- swimmers should be reasonably close to a State or Sectionals cut, AND
- plan to attend the meet they qualify for (State Meet in Little Rock or Sectionals in Columbia, MO). State Meet cuts are BB Times and can be found here.
For Hawgs, Coach Carolyn will enter swimmers who she feels are close to making these times. She will email parents of swimmers she has entered, so if you do not plan to attend, please let her know.
Junior Hawgs and Wild Hawgs should commit to swim, and be sure to add remarks for Coach Anita and Coach Paige in the “Comments” section to specify the events they want to swim.
Deadline to commit is TOMORROW, February 6th, so make your commitment now!
SHIRTS FOR CHAMPIONSHIP MEETS: A limited number of extra Championship Tour shirts have been ordered for those who qualify at the Invitational and Last Chance meets. Please order your shirts as soon as your swimmer qualifies to ensure you receive the size you want. Start collecting your "rock star" swag for the Parade of Athletes at the Championship Meet on Saturday morning!
2018 ASI 14-UNDER CHAMPIONSHIP MEET: Qualifying times for this meet are BB Times – an updated eligibility report is on the website which includes times earned at the Invitational meet. Times in black are qualifying events; events with a red time or NT are events in which your swimmer could earn QTs in the Last Chance Meet. Deadline to commit is Sunday, February 18th following the Last Chance Meet.
FRIDAY NIGHT AT THE RACES: We will conclude the short course season with Friday Night at the Races on March 9th. This fast, fun format is for Rookies, Hawgs, Junior Hawgs, and Wild Hawgs. Following Friday Night at the Races, we will take a two-week break and resume practice on March 26th. Signup will open soon!
SERVICE HOURS: Senior Hawg athletes who need volunteer hours for clubs, mission trips, or other activities are encouraged to help out at the Last Chance Meet and Friday Night at the Races.
