WEST Weekly

Hello WEST Swim Folk,

Welcome  to May and things are getting busier by the minute. Thank you to everyone that came out to help out at Dick Lafave. Parent volunteering helps meets run smoothly and effectively, and meets definitely wouldn’t be able to run without your help. The coaching staff was impressed to see many of the kids swimming close to their best times if not faster so early into long course season. Keep the following on your radar as we bound towards summer:

Colman Preseason & Summer Schedule

Please refer to Nick’s previous news announcement here to review the schedule. Please talk with other parents in your group if you need help coordinating car pools.


Memorial Day May Schedule Changes

No Lessons or Pre-Comp.

Pool Open for Lap Swim until 2pm.


Swim-a-thon Wrap up & Final Notification

As a reminder, we are still accepting donations online and by mail up through Saturday, May 12th! All donations will finish processing at that date. Winners will be announced at the conclusion of donations collection and processing. If you are doing donation matching with a company, please remember to contact Amber at to make sure your donation is processed correctly.



Good luck to our Senior Elite swimmers competing at Mayflowers at KCAC this weekend! Any Senior Elite swimmers not swimming at the meet will have practice at WEST on Friday, May 4th from 3:15 – 6:00pm with Senior. No practice for Senior Elite on Saturday May 5th. All other practices will run at normal time this weekend.


Spring Clean Up

For any parents looking for volunteer hours, Saturday May 19th will be an opportunity to finish them up! Job sign ups will be sent out by next week. Most of the jobs are simple clean up/maintenance work around WEST’s property.


If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out.


Happy Swimming!
