July 24, 2018
Good Morning WEST Families,
We are hauling faster than ever through the month of July, I can’t believe that we are nearing the end of long course season. Remember to stay hydrated in the heat - there’s no better place to cool off than at the pool. We have many swimmers participating in championship level meets the next few weeks, so please read these following announcements to stay in the loop!
Maintenance Shut Down: Date Correction
WEST will be CLOSED for maintenance work August 20 – September 3. The previous announced date was incorrect. We have many plans to continually evolve WEST into a more eco-friendly, energy efficient facility. All programs will be suspended over those 2 weeks. WEST will reopen September 4, the Tuesday after Labor Day, following our fall facility hours schedule.
Summer Team Meet #3 @ WEST
Our next summer team meet will take place here at WEST on Wednesday July 25th. - Warm ups will begin around 6:30 pm, so make sure your swimmer is ready to go. Expect the pool deck to be crowded, however we will be opening up the sliding door to the outside grass area for parents and swimmers to set up personal folding chairs and canopies.
Please do not come and set up chairs on the pool deck before 6:30pm. We have lessons running until 6:30pm and WILL NOT allow any spectators to set up before lessons conclude. Please be respectful of WEST's shared spaces on deck for other swim families.
Coaches will be on deck getting the swimmers organized prior to warmups.
There are NO PRACTICES for Summer Team on Wednesday the 25th.
