Super Scoop #8
Tuesday, June 5th

Greetings Super Bronze and Super Squad Families!

In this edition, I will have a Practice Update, a Practice Schedule Update, a WRAT Meet Update, and a NEW Special Event for SS Swimmers.


As mentioned at the Parent Meeting, we are expecting everyone to attend at least 2 out of the 4 practices per week, but we are recommending 3 out of 4 to really see improvement of all aspects of the sport. We understand all of our swimmers do activities other than swimming, and we 100% respect that and want them to pursue other interests. My goal for them is to have enough fun while learning to ultimately get them to choose swimming.

SB Schedule Changes:
          Thursday, June 7th – Normal Practice (Except for those attending the Meet)
          Saturday, June 9th – Normal Practice (With Coach Eric…I will be at a Wedding)
          Saturday, June 16th – NO PRACTICE (CDOG Meet instead)

SS Schedule Changes:
          Thursday, June 7th – Normal Practice (With Coach Alex)
          Saturday, June 9th – Normal Practice (With Coach Eric…I will be at a Wedding)
          Saturday, June 16th – NO PRACTICE (CDOG Meet instead)

**Practice Schedule Changing**
Every Summer we change to a new Practice Schedule once school is released, this is due to changing program times at the Y, so we therefore must change our schedule up a bit too. The Summer Practice Schedule is posted on our Team Website, under the Practice tab, and will begin on Monday, July 2nd.


In this section I will update you on any important Meet topics, including but not limited to Sign-Ups available, Sign-Up Deadlines, when the swimmers events are ready to view, when results are posted, etc.

Please check out our Meet Schedule.
