Storm Update





              I have been looking over the results from the Shakopee and Eden Prairie meets and talking to my coaches, it sounds and looked like this past weekend’s meets went better than expected!  With this being the first racing for most of the athletes since the end of July or early August we certainly looked strong and ready to move forward.  I have attached the results.  Please if you see a DQ and you want to make sure it doesn’t happen again, ask your coach for some feedback!   With over 45 swimmers at the meet there are too many great efforts to single any one out.  Take a look at the results and make sure you give your teammates that races some high fives and plan to be a part of the next one.  Our next meets are coming up at the end of October and early November which I detail below.  We are also trying to schedule a dual or tri meet with some other clubs, but finding pool time these days is harder than it was in the past.  If we do get one of these scheduled, we will let you know asap.


Things to know:

  1. Suits are in!  We will be brining them to practices so please be patient as they make their rounds.  IF you did not order one, we did order extras and we can see if the size we have left works for your son or daughter.  If not, we will have another order in December.
  2. Home meet at Hidden Oaks November 6th (please volunteer if your swimmer is in the event, swimmers over 13 can also help in the afternoon session to make this happen).  Entries are due October 25th, 2021.
  3. West Express Meet.  November 13th and 14th. This event will be for all swimmers who are not attending the Rochester meet the following weekend.  Entries are due November 1st, 2021
  4. SMIHL double dual October 29th.  As in the past, this is taking the place of one of the AG1-3 practices for the week.  Please, if you are unable to attend, login to your account and decline the event.  You can also tell your coach that you cannot make it and they can assist you if needed.  Decline by October 27th, 2021
  5. TYR Team Store.  We are working on getting up some custom gear for the team we will have many to choose from.  Remember to use password STORM2021 to enter.  We will be doing a mass order for swim gear in the near future in an effort to utilize the bulk discount whenever possible.
