Quote for the week:

Hello TorpedoesNation,

Practices Begin this week

                Today marks the first day back for our summer season.  All groups begin their regular practice schedule this week.  Calendars are updated online.  If your swimmer is swimming this season, be sure to register online. 

Get Capped!

                Tonight at practice, swimmers who are new to a group (moved up, or just joined the team) will be receiving his or her new group cap (orange caps for the orange group, blue caps for the blue group, etc.)  They are great, durable practice caps.  We ask that simmers wear the navy blue team caps for meets.

                PHOTO-OP:  For this Get Capped, if you want a picture of your swimmer receiving his or her cap, you are welcome to come on deck, or stand on the stairs above the head of your swimmers to get a good shot of your swimmer getting capped.  The ceremonies will happen just after 6pm, outside of Randy’s office.

Late-comers for Summer Season

                Callouts for the summer season have already occurred, but it is not too late to join the Torpedoes.  If you have friends, or know of people who are interested, they are welcome to come to tryout when they are available.  We will do tryouts before practices, at about 5:40, any day they can make it.  Calling ahead is great, but not necessary.  Coach Dave- 812-841-2585. 


New Parents     

                Next Monday or Tuesday, we will have the opportunity for you to learn more about the Torpedoes.  We have some board members who are going to help answer questions about the team, and what it means to be a swimmer family.  Some will be on hand to help with navigating our website as well.  Come with questions. 

                No sign up is necessary, and it will be the same info each night, so come to the more convenient session for you.  Things will start at 6:10pm and run until 6:45 or so each night, in the pool classroom.

The Swimming Life

                Our team equipment vendor will be at the pool next week.  They will have goggles and suits and fins and kickboards and pull buoys and paddles and snorkels and anything else you could want for the pool.  Days and times are TBA.
