Good Afternoon WEST Swamily,
Everyone and their mom has spring fever and is itching to head outside, so don’t forget to grab your sunblock as we head into these sunny summer months. Speaking of mothers, I hope everyone had a relaxing and warm Mother’s Day this past Sunday. Thank you for all the support our WEST swim moms provide, not only to our swimmers but also to our program. Also, great job to all of our swimmers that participated in the clinic this past weekend with David Nolan. Everyone had a blast and learned a lot about how to make their starts, turns and IM transitions super speedy. Please read the following news items to make sure you’re in the loop!
Please review our meet schedule here, and decline for any meets you will not be able to attend. We are adding a meet on June 30th – July 1st called June Jubilee and is intended for any swimmers not participating in the Pasco meet or Oregon meet. Warmups will begin at 2:00pm on Saturday and Sunday with a 3:00pm meet start. Info on June Jubilee will be added to our Events page shortly! This is also an opportunity to finish up some volunteer hours! For any questions, please contact your coach.
