DIVISIONALS MEET-JULY 28TH
The Divisionals Championship is the biggest meet of the season. Swimmers who have attended 2 regular meets and have a legal time from THIS season are eligible to swim in Divisionals. We are going to have a very exciting and close meet this year against Westridge and Victory Lakes. All three teams have strengths and weaknesses across the age groups, so this meet could come down to a Relay showdown! Sign-outs were due Friday, and Coaches are already preparing the meet entries. If you will not be there, or will be leaving the meet early, please contact Coach Wendy IMMEDIATELY and let her know send her an email.
PRACTICE ADJUSTMENTS MONDAY and TUESDAY
Because of the very unfavorable forecast this week, we have scheduled Monday and Tuesday morning practices at CPAC. Please see the email from Coach Wendy for more details. The schedule is also posted HERE. We will NOT have Mini Dolphin practice on Monday and Tuesday. Evening practices will be held if weather permits. Please all stay tuned for further communication on this.
