Greetings Super Bronze and Super Squad Families!

In this edition, I will have a Practice Update, a Practice Schedule Update, New Entries available to view, an Upcoming Meets Update, and two Special Events.

Practice!

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:
          Normal Practice this Saturday
          Wednesday, July 4th - No Practice
          Change to the New Summer Schedule on Monday

SS Schedule Changes:
          Normal Practice this Saturday
          Wednesday, July 4th - No Practice
          Change to the New Summer Schedule on Monday

**Practice Schedule Changing**
Every Summer we change to a new Practice Schedule once school is released, this is due to changing program times at the Y, so we therefore must change our schedule up a bit too. The Summer Practice Schedule is posted on our Team Website, under the Practice tab, and will begin on Monday, July 2nd. https://www.teamunify.com/ymca-1024/__doc__/2018%20Summer%20Pool%20Schedule%20-%20for%20website.pdf

Meets!

In this section I will update you on any important Meet topics, including but not limited to Sign-Ups available, Sign-Up Deadlines, when the swimmers events are ready to view, when results are posted, etc.

Please check out our Meet Schedule.

Upcoming Meet Information:
I have received a few emails from Team Members asking about the WHAT Invite this weekend. This Meet was a last chance resort Meet if we did not get into our other scheduled Meets. Our season has gone very smoothly thus far, so we do not need to attend the Meet that was scheduled for this weekend. Instead, we will have our final Saturday Practice of the season!

Special Events!

In this section, I will give a run-down of all important dates, some of which may be repeats of things above, just to put it all in the same place for you!

Returner Registration

Since you are all already on the team, no further Evaluations are required, instead we just ask that you RSVP to the Returner Registration Email that will be sent out in the next TEAM UPDATE email. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me or our Office Manager JoAnn McCaffrey.

SB & SS Next Season

As you all may know already, I will not be returning as the Wahoo Head Development Coach next season. I am sad to leave such a great program that I have helped build from the bottom up as the Head SB & SS Coach for the past 5 years. I have forged relationships with our Wahoo Swimmers that will hopefully last throughout their swimming careers, as I will still see them and you all on deck at Meets throughout the next seasons. I will absolutely miss seeing everyone, and as far as I have heard from the swimmers, they will miss me as well, which makes this such a difficult decision for me. I am also very excited to begin the chapter in my coaching career, and I along with many of my colleagues agree that this is a great move for my professional development. I have conveyed to our swimmers that being mad at me is perfectly normal, being sad is perfectly normal, and not being able to understand my move is also perfectly normal, BUT kids are resilient and they will quickly move on. We have another month and a half together, so I hope that we can take advantage of it and have one last amazing end of the season together! Thank you for all of support everyone has given me thus far, it is truly appreciated, and it takes my mind off of the guilt of leaving everyone. I want to invite everyone to feel free to reach out to me even after I have moved on to the Cheshire team, in case you or swimmer needs some encouraging, I am always happy to help my little Wahoos in any capacity that I can, no matter where I may be.

 

Sincerely,
Coach Dave
