Welcome to the Aquawolves Swim Team!
Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying some time off. Congrats to our end of season swimmers. We had our 12 and unders swimming at STATE and our Western Senior Zones team in California last weekend to finish up our summer long course season!
It feels great to be close to some type of normal as we move into a new season. It has been so fun to plan for!!
I want to welcome our new families and make sure before we take time off we are all on the same page when we come back.
A couple of items to take care of before September when we start back up:
- Make sure billing and roster groups are correct for your family. Coaches will be sending move up emails as well if they haven't done so already.
- Review the team handbook that is attached to this email.
- Order Team Gear! Every athlete must have the NEW team suit, give MI sports a day or so to get the new suit up and posted. Required gear for our sponserhip is a TYR jacket (warm up or parka), TYR back pack and the TYR team suit. The Team SHIRT is ordered on the event tab on the website so please make sure to do that as well! You can get as many as you want!
- Mark your calendars for practices and other important dates!
- We are planning a social team outing August 24th at Sundance pool. More details to come! Watch the event tab.
First week of practice for Gold, Silver, Bronze and Blue will be August 30th - September 2nd. No practice September 3rd or 6th. This will be an "optional" week to get in early and start to feel things out. We will officially start after Labor Day on September 7th. Sean will send out information for Seniors, National prep and Nationals.
September 10th We will have TWO events this night. First off we will go through our team handbook and other important information for the season. We will have parents there to help answer questions on other areas of the team if you would like to be more involved. Conan will be there for Officials and ways to get involved here. Michele Kohl will be there for any questions on Volunteering.
On September 10th we MIGHT have MI Sports coming to Cherry Creek High School for a Team Fitting. This is NOT looking likely.
Your best bet is you can always go to the store. Hopefully most of your gear will be taken care of beforehand but if you need to try on suits they will be here for you. I don't think they want to do an in person fitting and would rather do everything online or you visit them.
MEET SCHEDULE - MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!
First Home meet will be September 17th-18th at Cherry Creek High School.
October 8th and 9th,

We are excited for this next season. It has been a crazy year and a half, but it is amazing how much stronger and better we are as a TEAM! We have been through a lot and only are getting stronger. Can't thank you enough for how you represent our team and buy into our philosophy. We do our best to give the experience to your kids on how to be better people out of the water and athletes in the water. We care a lot and appreciate your trust in us.
Hope everyone enjoys their month off and comes back refreshed and ready to go!
