Can you believe that this season is wrapping up this week?! What a better way to celebrate than a SPIRIT WEEK!
Trying something new this year with a couple of mini meets on Monday and Tuesday mornings during practice times. We’ve split the teams into two groups. Each age group will have 4 events and will be awarding prizes for each heat winner. If time, we’ll have other special fun events. We’ll need some parent volunteers and older swimmers to help with timing and flagging.
Monday--Mini Meet for age groups 9-10, 11-12 & 15-18
Tuesday--Mini Meet for age groups 6 and under, 7-8 & 13-14
Wednesday—Silly Sock Day and Dice Games
Friday--Picture Day!!! Megan and Kylie Harris have volunteered to take our big team picture followed by individual and/or family pictures. We will need some strong parents early at 6:45 am to move picnic tables to the far side (southwest) side of the pool to use as risers for the group picture and then move them back. Please wear a team suit if you have it, no shirts only suits for the team picture. We will take a team picture first followed by individuals. We WILL have practice after pictures.
More Details on SwimAThon: The Wentzville Sea Dragons Swim-a-thon has been an annual tradition for many years, and we encourage ALL swimmers to participate during practice! Each lane will have endurance goals to meet. Swim-A-Thon will include a few fun twists like music, contests and crazy swim during a portion of the event!
As an independent organization, we have to fund raise to pay for team equipment like lap lanes, stopwatches, audio equipment and much more! Collecting pledges is not necessary to participate in the Swim-A-Thon. Click here for form: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jd-fpDOwjBwV24w2a3XxqNf0-yzuvBzM/view?usp=sharing
