Storm Weekly Update – 2/12/2018

Practice Schedule Link

*Tomorrow is the entry deadline for the Faribault Invite.  If you are interested in attending, please sign up asap.

**If you happened to sign up to volunteer at our meet in May, that was an error on our end opening it up.  Those slots will be created and posted at the beginning of the spring season.


Winter Season Volunteering:

We recently sent an email and it is also posted on our news section.  Please ensure you read and understand the changes to our volunteer policy for the winter season.  New families, middle school and HS maintenance swimmers are all expected to help (in addition to our returning families and those in our AG/JR/SR groups).  Hosting 2 large meets is an honor, but also one that requires a larger commitment from our members.

Storm Volunteering Policy - Winter Season


MRC Volunteering Slots - Now Open:

We have finished creating the online meet volunteering slots for the MRC meet in March.  Please login and select the slots you wish to help with.  Remember, this is a first come, first serve sign up!  


Current Meets:

Vince Herring Invitational - February 16th - 18th - Rochester, MN

We are all set for this meet!  We have 42 Storm Swimmers attending and we’ll use this as a great opportunity to see where we stack up against some of the best in the state.  We’ll post timelines, programs and more when they become available.


Southern Alliance Conference Champs - February 17th - Farmington, MN

This is the last novice meet of the season and it will be a great chance to try out a new event or qualify for the MAC or MRC Champs as well.  We expect to see warmup info and timelines soon.  The host team emailed that the timeline was under 3 hours, so it won’t be an all day affair.


Upcoming Meets:

Atlantis Invite - February 23rd - Faribault, MN

Registration Deadline: February 13th

This invitational takes place on Friday night only and is a great opportunity to get in some racing before the championship season starts.  We’d love to see swimmers try some events they aren’t swimming later in the season!  Meet info and online registration is now available.


MAC Championships - March 3rd - 4th - Edina, MN

Registration Deadline: February 20th

This meet is for swimmers with “C” or Pre-C times only.  You may add new qualifying swims from the Atlantis meet, but please send an email with that request on the 23rd to ensure you get entered.  This meet kicks off the championship season and we’re excited to be staying in the metro area and be able to sleep in our own beds!  If you earn new “B” times or better at this meet, you can add them to the MRC meet as well.  Meet info and entry files are now available.


MRC Championships - March 9th - 11th - Kenwood Trail, Lakeville

Registration Deadline: February 27th

This is it!  A home MRC meet!  We’re going to burn up the Kenwood Trail Pool!  Full meet info and entry info is now posted.  We’re hoping to see 175+ Storm Swimmers at this meet!  Remember, the win it and swim it option is back this winter.  Please read the meet info for full details.  Any new State qualifying swims can be added, so please send us an email so we get you entered.


Sr State Championships - March 15th - 18th - Eden Prairie, MN

Registration Deadline: March 6th

The best of the best will be in Eden Prairie this year and we can’t wait to see where we stack up.


Age Group State Championships - March 22nd - 25th - Rochester, MN

Registration Deadline: March 6th

Let’s get ready to Rock Rochester!  We have a great group of swimmers already qualified and can’t wait to see who can punch their ticket to join them at MRC’s (or before).  Get excited!!!  Go Storm!!!  Full meet info is posted and we should see an entry file soon.


Texas Super Sectionals - March 22nd - 25th - University of Texas, TX

Registration Deadline: March 18th (or whenever the meet fills)

We currently have 13 swimmers heading to this meet and we’re so pumped!  It’s a wicked fast pool and they will undoubtedly be some great competition for us to go up against!  If you’re not already signed up, but have interest, please let Chuck or Phil know asap.


See you at the pool,
