Welcome Back Barracudas! 38 days until opening day at Westleigh. 40 days until the first Barracuda practice. 52 days until time trials. 59 days until our first A Meet. 63 days until our first B Meet. What we are trying to communicate is that swim season is upon us. We wanted to share some important information and welcome everyone to the best 2 months of the year.
We are very fortunate to be welcoming back Matt Larson, Megan Grainger, Jenna Messing and Kevin Scher for the summer. We are also grateful to welcome two longtime swim team members as new coaches, Emma Helgeson and Kyle Foster.
A few important things on the horizon.
- Team registration is open on TeamUnify. The link is below. Make sure to register online now.
- In addition to our regular schedule of home dual meets on Saturdays and Wednesdays we will be hosting our iconic Mini-Meet on Sunday July 15th, the annual Superstars Extravaganza Wednesday July 18th and A Divisionals on Saturday July 21st. Then we will rest……
- ……..Rest until Sunday July 22nd when we blow the roof off the Gaithersburg Hilton at our Westleigh Awards Banquet.
- And don’t forget our annual trip to King’s Dominion on Tuesday June 26th.
Couple of additional important things. A Relays are on Sunday July 1st at Manchester Farms; B Relays are on Thursday July 12th at Quince Orchard. And since July 4th falls on a Wednesday this year our third B Meet of the season will be held on Tuesday July 3rd. We will also be scheduling a kickoff meeting after Memorial Day for parents to discuss the season ahead, goals for our team, line up volunteers and answer any questions you might have.
