Quote for the week:
"The word "character" is Greek for "stamp or engrave." Over time through repeated action you engrave certain habits onto your heart. You stamp your life with a particular way of thinking and acting. These are the habits of the heart that become your #character."
~Tim Kight, E+R=O

Online Team Store
We are trying a new thing. Our gear vendor is setting up online ordering. They are also offering a partial return on your purchase. With your purchase you get 1% back and your team will get 2% back. I have set up the team store on our website. You need to log into our site to see the tab. Once you click the tab it will take you to our gear site.
If you got something you need to buy go check it out.
The team will be taking a break March 31st to April 8th. Practice will start up again on the 9th. This is lined up with the Anacortes school district spring break. I hope everyone enjoys their Easter and break.
The first meet out of break will be the Marlin Madness. This is a fun meet, the older swimmers get to compete in races they normally dont get to do and the younger swimmers get to go to a low pressure swim meet and work on their racing skills.
You can get online and sign up now.
This year we are looking to raise $20,000. The money will go towards updating our touch pads and timing equipment, raising money for the end of the year team gift, cover part of the cost of the team trip, purchase team equipment and create funds for families in financial needs.
More details coming, we are also looking for energetic parents who would like to partner and help run parts of the swim-a-thon.
Also for swimmers going on the team trip, 20% of the money they raise will go towards their cost.
This year the team is traveling to the Tri-Cities. In the past the cost has been about $300 per swimmer. That amount covers, transportation, food, room and meet entry fees.
TAC will be taking only 13 and older swimmers. They will travel with the team, compete together, eat together and hangout together. It is one of the best events through the year.
Parents are welcome to come and watch the swim meet but they need to handle their own transportation and room.
Swimmers that are 12 and under can compete in the swim meet but they must travel with parents and it will be like a normal meet for them. They can participate in team activities but will be staying with parents.
More details will be coming out. Sign up will open up in April.
A substitute to Gatorade or other sugary drinks. At our nutrition meeting, Suzanne brought in a product called Concentrace as a alternative to our many sports drinks that are filled with lots of sugar. Concentrace is made by Trace Minerals. They can be bought online or at the The Market Grocery.
Trace Minerals has other lines, including a kids line and one called 40,000 volts https://traceminerals.com/40000-volts/) , which is also good for making your own high electrolyte and trace mineral sports drink.
I would recommend trying it out, getting our swimmers.
