MONDAY MESSAGE FROM YOUR AQUAHAWG COACHES FOR July 16, 2018
PRACTICE SCHEDULE THIS WEEK –Regular practice schedule for Hawgs, Junior Hawgs, Wild Hawgs and Senior Hawgs Monday-Friday. No Thursday practice for Rookies due to swim meet. No Friday practice for Rookies. Regular Saturday practice for those NOT swimming in the Last Chance Meet.
NWAA MEMORIAL CLASSIC – Temperatures on deck gave us a good warmup of what State Champs will be like in 2 weeks! Despite the heat, we had multiple swimmers with new personal best times and state cuts. Our coaches are very proud of the athletes and are looking forward to more great times in 2 weeks! Results are available in your OnDeck app.
ROOKIE HAWGS FINAL REGULAR SEASON MEET - Rookies, it's almost Champs time! Our last meet is Thursday at The Jones Center! Please make your commitment now and plan to swim your best times all season.
LAST CHANCE MEET - Coaches have completed entries, and if you committed your swimmer and do not see an event for him/her, the time is not close enough to a state cut to swim Last Chance.
We need volunteers to run the meet, so if you have 90 minutes on Saturday morning to time or help as a team parent, please sign up and thank you for supporting our meet!
STATE CHAMPIONSHIP MEET –An updated Eligibility Report is now on the website – all qualifying swimmers whose season goal is State Championships should plan to attend this meet. If your swimmer does not have state times and would like to be considered for a relay team, please commit to the Saturday and/or Sunday sessions you would be available and coaches will assign relay-only swimmers on a space-available basis.
Final call to purchase your SuperHawg spirit wear in the HawgShop! This will be a spirit shirt for all future meets (not just State Champs), so place your order by 6 a.m. tomorrow (Tuesday) to ensure you get the size you want.
Thank you to the Gibson Family for sponsoring our State Team caps, and to Paula Wicklund for her work on the SuperHawg capes. We are grateful for the investment our parents make in our team!
ROOKIE HAWGS – Rookies have Meet #3 at The Jones Center on Thursday evening, followed by their South Champs meet on Tuesday, July 24th.
