Thank you Shark Group

The Shark group and their parents hosted the first Super Splash of the long course season and they did a GREAT job! It was a beautiful evening and there were actually multiple events going on at HSE – the MUDSOCK Battle in track for both boys and girls to name one…plus a little Pacers game tonight too! Thank you very much Sharks – it ran well and fast!

Clayton Shaw Park Invite Team Travel

Team Travel is offered for all 13&Over swimmers who are competing at the Clayton Shaw Park Invite in St Louis, Missouri. We have extended the sign-up deadline to Monday – all travel, lodging and breakfast will be included for $175. Travel will be in vans, lodging at the Ritz-Carlton, and breakfast will be “grab-n-go” – each athlete will need to bring spending money for lunches and dinners. The registration for this will be on the SSC website asap. Please note that there are TWO separate sign-ups for the meet…a) for entry and b) for travel.

SSC Senior Group – Plan your Physical NOW!!!

SSC Senior Team Members (“rising frosh” included – that means you 8th graders) – please remember that you will need a new physical on file by June 1st. Your new physical has to be after April 1st in order to be valid. This serious – YOU CANNOT PRACTICE IN JUNE WITHOUT AN UPDATED IHSAA PHYSICAL ON FILE!  HSE HS also requires that you complete your online forms as well – more information on this can be found HERE.

What is Amazon Smile?

AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support.

Amazon Smile?

So Southeastern Swim Club does have an Amazon Smile account and we have added it to our heading above…I signed up years ago and went to check this today – my account shows absolutely zero donation over the course of 2 years. I have discovered that there is a little bit of a catch to this…1) you must shop at to get credit and 2) all purchases made using the Amazon Apps are not eligible. My plan at this time is to see how smooth it is using the smile address for all of my normal Amazon shopping. Please consider adding “Southeastern Swim Club” to your Amazon profile.

SSC Senior Group Females and Parents – Please Read this!– Plan your Physical NOW!!!

Towards the end of senior practice on May 1st (Tuesday of this week), Ball State will be attending practice to educate and inform our team about a research study entitled “Adolesent Females’ Experiences with Mood & Body Image in Different Sport Contexts.” SSC has a long history of supporting BSU – we will email forms to the senior group and we are hopeful that some of our athletes will see fit to participate in this study.

2018 SSC Annual Meeting

The 2018 SSC Annual Meeting will take place in the HSE Cafeteria (Café D) April 30th, 2018 at 6p. Attendance is completely optional.

Coach’s Corner
