PST This Week - 12/12/21

Congratulations to our Team Captain, Kate Aubrecht!

Kate (class of 2022) has committed to study and swim at Amherst College , and we cannot be more proud of her. Congratulations Kate, we are delighted for you and the entire Aubrecht family! Go Mammoths!

Congratulations Simon!

Many congratulations to Simon Lins who swam at his first Junior National Championship in Austin, Texas over the past few days. Simon competed against the very best 18&U swimmers from the West and achieved new personal lifetime bests in the 100 Fly and 100 Back and qualified for finals in the 50 Free. Congratulations and we are very, very proud of you! 

 

 

Amazing Results at Utah and JO meet!

Many congratulations to the 14&U boys medley relay team for qualifying for the Far Western Championship in April and to Cole Carnazzo for coming 3rd in the 200 Fly at Junior Olympics in Santa Clara. Awesome job boys!

Next Week :

Sunday, 12/19 11:30 am - 2:30pm All swimmers Team Holiday Party!

Join us for Piedmont Swim Team's Holiday Party on Sunday, December 19, 2021 at the Encinal Pool from 11:30am to 2:30 pm. 

This is a great opportunity for all swimmers to mix and mingle in a safe outside location. We will be making slime, decorating "Gingerbread" Houses and making holiday ornaments. This will be a fun get together for kids young and old...so don't miss it. There will be drinks and pizza! We've had so few opportunities for the different age groups to mix and this is a perfect opportunity to meet some of the other kids that make up the team. The "older" swimmers will be there to help run the party and inspire our younger members. We hope you can make it!

Please confirm if you will be attending or not on our website here by Friday Dec 17th.

 

Important Dates :

12/24-1/2: Winter Break. We are on Winter Break from Friday 12/24 until Sunday 1/2. Happy Holidays!

Swimmers! Please save your white caps for meets! Despite being silicone, they may rip or get lost with constant use. We are in the process of ordering more. For all merchandise questions, contact George White ( [email protected] ).


 

This Week's Top Tip!

Swimming burns hundreds of calories each practice. Don't wait until you get home to replace these, give your swimmer a small healthy protein - packed snack immediately after practice (there is about a 30 minute window)  which will help with muscle recovery and mental fatigue. Chocolate milk is ideal! 

 

Team Gear Update:

There is still time to order your custom gear today so that you have it by Zone 2 Championships in January, as we want to present ourselves as a team and wear the team jacket and blue team t-shirt.
