Marlin Update for January 1, 2018
Happy New Year to you all!
We will be having practices this week. For details, please take a look at our calendar here: https://docs.google.com/document/d/13OFK9eVEES_7C0b53doaOT5c6MHm2c_o8DeWrVm9i1U/edit
MAValanche Invite - This Weekend
The psych sheet is posted on the meet page. We will need to furnish a couple of timers. Please be willing to step up to fill those spots. If you swimmer is competing in the distance events on Friday, you will need to furnish your own times and counters.
The MAValanche Invite is a prelim final meet for swimmers 11 and over. That means that everyone swims in the morning session and then the Top 16 swimmers will get the opportunity to compete again in the evening in the Finals. (The 200 breast, 200 back, 200 fly for 11-12 will be swam as timed finals.)
The Marlins are assuming that if a swimmer makes the finals, they will come back a compete in finals. This is a fantastic opportunity to swim a race, get feedback from your coach and then get a chance to swim the race better and faster in the evening at Finals. This prelim-finals format is seen in the higher levels meets, including High School Championships.
Montrose Marlin Winter Open - January 27-28
Our winter home meet is approaching. Please either sign-up for the meet or decline the meet. If you do that, I will stop pestering you. If you do not choose events for your swimmer, your coach will do so.
Job sign ups are available on the website here: https://www.teamunify.com/EvJobSignup.jsp?event_id=809682&team=commco . Sign up quickly to get your favorite job! We will be doing very limited hospitality. Food sign ups will be posted very soon.
