Hello Parents & Swimmers,
We are looking forward to getting started on September 3rd. Attached is the swim meet calendar for the Blue, Gold & Stroke School groups, our last team update included the other group calendars. You can also find these on our website under schedules. Take a look and put down some swim meet dates for the Fall. For Blue, Gold and Stroke School swimmers plan on attending the Armada Halloween Splash in October, which will be an event especially for swimmers new to meets.
There are a couple of meets on the calendar all ready open for registration for swimmers with swim meet experience: Crow Canyon Swim Meet, September 21 & 22 held in San Ramon. This meet is for Junior II swimmers and below. Also on the calendar for Senior Group swimmers is the Manatees 2x1mile open water relay event held in Livermore at Lake Del Valle. Visit our website and click under the Events tab for more information about these events.
They’re a few important dates to put down on your calendar. The first, our equipment order day hosted by Nor Cal Swim Shop on September 10th, 4-7:30pm. Nor Cal will set up poolside and take all swimsuit, warm up and personalized cap and gear orders. Our team suits will stay the same except for the boy’s brief style. This style has been discontinued for the brief style; we’ll have a solid navy brief instead. We will also switch from a screen print on our suits to embroidery, which will look great and last long.
The second important date to plan ahead for is our Fall Parents Meeting on Wednesday, September 25th, time and location TBA. We will review important team information, new team policies and parent volunteer expectations.
For Blue & Gold group swimmers please note Coach Verónica Hernández will be attending the American Swim Coaches Association (ASCA) World Clinic Convention held in New Orleans and not be on deck Wednesday-Friday of the first week of practice. This convention was a prior commitment but also a great opportunity to learn and bring back new ideas to our team. Coach Katie will be leading the group while Coach Veronica is out of town.
See you on Tuesday, September 3rd!!
