SEPTEMBER 9 WEEKLY SPLASH 2018
Thought of the Week: “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from having an indomitable will!” - Ghandi
TEAM NEWS: -
Fall Silicone cap order is here once again. They do look sharp! Come and get them to stock up for the season. Our last day to order will be Sunday, September 16. Order now, so it doesn’t slip your mind. Next cap order isn’t until April. I will place the order on Monday, September 17. If we can get 100 or more caps ordered, we will get a price break. Check the website for ordering information.
TOMORROW - Sunday, September 9th – Open Water Challenge at Tallchief Lake. It is a private lake on the Zink Ranch property. Good luck to those participating! We encourage those that want to see what the race is all about and to cheer on our swimmers, please join us.
Saturday, September 22 – Team Intra Squad. Warm ups start at 7:30 am for the older groups and will continue for the younger groups closer to the 9 am start time. 3 events per swimmer. Sign up will be on the website already. Deadline is Sunday, September 16th.
Query Corner – This is a place that anyone can let me know of a question that you may have. We can anonymously share it with the group to hopefully help others.
“Should I order a team cap for a very young swimmer who will not be doing many meets yet? Absolutely! Splash Club Swim Caps are for everyone on the team. We want to instill team pride in your son or daughter. Side bar - Anyone with any length to their hair needs to wear a cap in the pool anyway. It is great for protecting your hair and for trying to keep loose hair from getting into the pool filtration system, causing all sorts of eventual problems. Thanks so much!
SWIM GROUP NOTES:
