LC 2018 Super Scoop #5

LC 2018
Super Scoop #5
Wednesday, May 9th

Greetings Super Bronze and Super Squad Families!

In this edition, I will have some Practice CHANGES, Meet Information for this Weekend, a Lost and Found Update, and a Dryland Update.


As mentioned at the Parent Meeting, we are expecting everyone to attend at least 2 out of the 4 practices per week, but we are recommending 3 out of 4 to really see improvement of all aspects of the sport. We understand all of our swimmers do activities other than swimming, and we 100% respect that and want them to pursue other interests. My goal for them is to have enough fun while learning to ultimately get them to choose swimming.

SB Schedule Changes:
          Saturday, 5/12 – No Practice (Due to WYW Summer Qualifier)
          Saturday, 5/19 – No Practice (Due to Bubble Down)

SS Schedule Changes:
          Friday, 5/11 – No Practice (Due to WYW Summer Qualifier)
          Saturday, 5/12 - No Practice (Due to WYW Summer Qualifier)
          Friday, 5/18 – No Practice (Due to Bubble Down Prep)
          Saturday, 5/19 – No Practice (Due to Bubble Down)

**Dryland Update** It has been going well in its 3-day existence thus far. As the weather gets warmer, we will start taking our Dryland outside. This being said, I need everyone to start wearing SNEAKERS to Dryland Practice if you plan on attending. We can’t go outside in Flip Flops, Crocs or Bare Feet. I also need them to wear their bathing suits under a pair of shorts and a shirt, so we can get in the pool right after we are finished.**

  1. Parent Handbooks/Team T-Shirts

If you attended our Parent Meetings last week and didn’t receive a New Wahoo Handbook, please see me after Practice. Every Wahoo Family must have a Wahoo Handbook. If you are returning Wahoo Family or have an older sibling on the team and have already received a Wahoo Handbook, you are all set.

Also, I have a few more swimmers who haven’t received a Team T-Shirt, if you are one of these, please also see me after practice so I can get you your swag!
