Weekly Update 7/22/21


              Just a quick shout out to the 45 swimmers that we had competing at the Last Chance Meet at the U of M this past weekend!  We saw lots of smiles and great racing across the board.  We are looking forward to carrying that momentum into the State Meets these next two weekends.  We are in Rochester for the Age Group Meet and at the U of M for the Senior Meet.  We have 20 attending the AG Meet and 29 heading to the U.  We have relays!!  What!!  We are very excited to see these again as they are the best part of any event.

              The club will be concluding its summer Session on July 29.  This will be the last update until we start back up in September with our fall session.  The plan is to start on September 7.  Exact details will be provided in early August, regarding the times and locations of practices.  Registration will be open starting early next week.  Please register early, so that we can adjust our staffing needs.  We will send assessments out to all of your swimmers by the August 6th, so that you know which group you should register for.

It’s been a great summer and I know the coaches are looking forward to the Olympics starting at the end of this week.  We will all be cheering on Regan Smith in her quest to bring home a gold medal.  As many of you know, she swam with us at Storm for six years, and we are still some of her biggest fans. 

Let’s Go Team USA!

Upcoming Events:

  1. As some of you are aware, we do have one last competition, that we are defending State Champions at.  = The open water state meet.  After last summer, I would say our prowess has only increased.  (If you know what I mean)  Registration Link
  2. As we approach the month of August and the Olympics: If you know of any friends who are younger and have an interest, we are hosting an Olympic Clinic starting Monday August 2nd that runs for 4 nights.  Registration Link
  3. For those looking to stay in the water, we will have a two-week August training from 7:30-9:00AM at Bracketts Crossing.  Registration Link
  4. Lastly, for those of you who have graduated, we want to send you off in style.  Join us at the track on August 3rd for a night of horse racing.  Let us know you can attend, so that we can plan ahead. Registration Link

Lastly, we have been so happy with our partnership with TYR and vice versa that we have been selected to be one of the first teams to purchase directly from them.  With this, all items are 25% off, all the time.  We even have a team rep dedicated to us, for assistance with sizing and other details.  Haley Spencer is our representative and she has been great to work with.  With this, we will be starting some new things this fall.  Team suits, group orders and customized embroidery will all be offered for our team.  This will be great for us and save us some of that Child Tax credit money that some of us were sent!
