Coach Scott's Notes for 4/21/18

 

ello Water Rat Swimmers and Parents,
Welcome Back now that Week One of Spring swimming is completed. I hope everyone had a restful spring break.

Looking forward… Spring / Summer Long Course Meets are extremely difficult to get “Entries” in for as there are very few 50 Meters pool in Connecticut and every team is trying to fight for a spot. Please look at your calendar and please RSVP on Team Unify for summer meets. This needs to be done as soon as possible. It is easier for the coaches to scratch (pull out) a swimmer from a meet than it is to add a swimmer to a meet. If you have signed up for a meet and know already you cannot attend please email me so I can scratch your swimmer from the meets.
