  • State Meet Team Dinner = will be Wednesday night after practice at 7pm at Moe’s right around the corner from the pool.  Siblings or teammates riding carpooling together are welcome to come. 
  • State Meet T-Shirts = were ordered late and will not be in until after meet.  It is completely Coach Heath’s fault.  My apologies to all. 
  • SHAVE & TAPER = it is expected for all swimmers to rest, rest, rest……..and wear tech suits at this meet.  10&U are NOT allowed to wear tech suits.  It is agaisnt the rules for 10&U!!!  13 & Over swimmers should shave down.  Stretching at night and foam rolling is always good.  Be positive and show mental toughness throughout the meet weekend. 
  • RELAYS = are found on the "State Meet" event page/link.  Please confirm that you will be there for your relays by emailing me or texting me.  All relays will be during finals. We are waiting to hear back from meet management to publish if relays will be at the beginning of finals or at the end on Friday & Saturday.  They presented it before all the coaches and we voted on it.  If relays end up being before finals, we most likely will NOT swim relays.  I do not want to sacrifice individual swims for relays.  I believe and my hope is that they will be swum at the conclusion of finals.  I will let you know for sure when we get word.

Thanks everyone!!!  It has been a very fast & furious summer!!!  Let’s finish it off with fast & furious swimming!!!

Love,

Coach Heath & Staff
