Swim Team News - 4/29/22
This email is going out to all club members, but most future swim team emails will be sent only to swim team families. Please disregard if this information doesn’t apply to you. Thanks!
Here it comes!
Welcome back to summer…and it looks almost “normal” again! Our GSSSL meet schedule and our workout schedule are similar to “pre-Covid” times. Fingers crossed that things stay heading in this direction.
We were fortunate to have had a partial summer meet schedule last year. Much better than 2020 when we only had virtual time trial meets! This year will bring the full “family party” atmosphere of the GSSSL season back. Watching our younger swimmers cheer on their older siblings, neighbors cheering on neighbors, and our lifeguards showing everyone just how fast they really are helps bring our club to life. Families seeing their “summer friends” again and hanging out together all evening long at meets and practices reminds us all what makes our club so special.
Swim Team Registration will open May 1. Don’t worry, we don’t have a lid, so everyone interested can join. We do ask that swimmers are able to pass the pool swim test to participate on the team. Check with the pool office if you need to schedule a swim test.

Swim Team Zoom Meeting/Orientation - May 11 - 7:30pm
All of our swim team families, especially new members and also those families that have only participated during “covid” seasons, are encouraged to join. We’ll cover practice and meet schedules, family and swimmer expectations, and have plenty of time for questions from you!

Swim Team “Jump Start” May 16 - 20. Although the club doesn’t officially change to our “early” summer member schedule until May 21, we’re getting a bit of a head start with the swim team. We’ve planned a modified schedule for the week of May 16-20.
Our coaches, along with board reps Dave and Johanna, will be on hand to go over swimmer/family expectations and to help answer any questions. We’ll also have our team suit “fit-kit” available to help assist with suit ordering.
